Marlene Monteiro Freitas

MAL – Embriaguez Divina

Minimum age: 12 years

Duration 105 min

Marlene Monteiro Freitas’ “MAL” revolves around evil and its ambivalence. Particularly in the theatre, this abstract giant appears time and again as a driving force. Freitas conjures – and bans – this force with an overabundance of action. Worry and fear are juxtaposed with a kind of Dionysian ecstasy. The nets and grids on stage provide the backdrop for marches, surveillance rituals, sporting competitions, and physics experiments, all set against the stark contrast of light and shade, noise and silence. A spectacle like an illuminating exorcism.
