from the workshop “Now you do it!” By Rui Catalão

“Hard Questions” follows the work of Rui Catalão and the public presentations of the theater workshop “Now you do it!” In this workshop a model is put into practice in which the participants become interpreters of their own work. They become actors and playwrights. This implies an awareness: the importance of the ability to observe, to reflect, to value personal experience, the act of describing and creating narratives, and to engage in dialogue in relationship with others.
It is not about memorizing a text, but about using memory. It is not about representing a character, but about assuming the consequences of his actions. The piece that comes out of this workshop is one-on-one with the audience: the participants ask uncomfortable questions, and as actors and authors of their characters they have to answer them.

In the end, the participants come on the scene with the professional actors of the play “Now us!” (Adriano Diouf, Joãozinho da Costa, Jéssica Ribeiro, Vânia Lopes and Luis Mucauro) who, following the same rules of the game of difficult questions, together, rise to absolutely unique presentations.
