“1001 Nights – Sister Palestine” is a co-creation of Teatro O Bando and Companhia Olga Roriz, in partnership with the Portuguese Symphonic Band, where theatre, dance and music lead the public through an anthology of stories preserved in the ancient oral tradition, in one of the most important works of universal literature, “The Thousand and One Nights”.

Under the joint artistic direction of Olga Roriz and João Brites, the show features a cast of eight actors and dancers who represent numerous characters, including Xariar, Xerazade and Doniazade, represented by Maria Dally, a Palestinian dancer, Xerazade’s sister, who with she confides and devises the plan that saves the population from King Xariar’s wrath. They are also joined by a group of 30 musicians performing live the music composed by Jorge Salgueiro and Fábio Marques.

The origin of the stories in “The Arabian Nights” embodies a civilizational transversality that relates to different points of view, different points of origin, and different peoples, bringing us together around the countless variants of the work that circulate in Asia, in Latin America, in Europe. Like Scheherazade, the mission is to tell stories to survive, yes, but also to change the world.

Part of the celebrations of the 50th anniversary of Teatro O Bando, the show represents the search for the truths that are hidden in fiction and the illusions that cloud reality, seeking to accept that, in a world so divided and with so many points of view, doubt and inquiry can also be places of recognition and encounter.

A journey through “A Thousand and One Nights”, the guiding thread of the tetralogy that over the next four years comes to life through the hands of different directors from Teatro O Bando, in which a new show is born from the end of the previous show. “1001 Nights – Sister Palestine” represents a new complicity in which Olga Roriz and João Brites intercept their creative processes. In each part of this tetralogy, Doniazade is represented by an actress from a different culture, who gives her name to each of the theatrical creations.
