"Céu", de Xavier Pereira
The young playwright Xavier Pereira has now written the play Céu, whose debut is announced for October 18 at the Village Underground Lisbon, constituting the 18th stage production of Buzico! with João Ascenso signing the show's performance.
The five young female characters are interpreted by actresses Ana Lúcia Magalhães, Catarina Mago, Catarina Siqueira, Laura Barbosa and Mikaela Lupo, recreating the possibility of a generational portrait that, in a kind of technological apotheosis of omnipresence, lends itself to the illusion of a permanent virtual communicability, almost making rare the possibility of the real.
Heaven is a text of islanders who have unlearned the physical time of being (of being actually for someone), listening, caring, touching and living. And being this, it is not, for the best reasons, a manifesto, nor a typification. It is rather an equidistant and everyday look of a couple of five girls (without this being a subsidiary text of a gender discourse) that, due to a marked event, awaken from the atony in which they are immersed, so to speak, to return to an experience their people, their lives and the friendship that unites them in a poignant way, although they almost did not realize it.
After the expected career of 4 weeks at the Sala Village Underground Lisbon the show will run the country from north to south and islands.
Budget and due dates
We have used the PPL and a crowdfunding campaign for two reasons: firstly, because the contributions can be from € 1.00, anonymously or not; second, because Buzico! Artistic Productions is not a structure with financial support from the state or private and as we have as motto: to give stage to their passions, artists, we do not want to defraud the expectations of those who entrust us their projects.
If we can achieve our € 2,750 target, this value will be used to support the payment of the following items: rights, staging, actors' rehearsals, lighting design, set design, music, graphic design and promotion materials (brochures, posters - MUPIs , A3 - and room sheet), age rating of the show, representation licenses and promotion campaigns (social networks and media).
