The “Retratus” performance, by the Guerberoff group, will be presented on Saturday at the museum in Lisbon, from the exhibition “Do not take the natural polo. Portuguese portrait survey” at the National Museum of Ancient Art (MNAA).
The free entrance show starts at 4:00 p.m., and each interpreter will have “to make their self-portrait alive, using a frame and different techniques of interpretation, texts, gestures, images, music,” according to the museum.
The audience will be able to go through the performance contemplating each self-portrait for as long as they want, adds the press release.
Guerberoff is a theater group formed by young people between the ages of 14 and 21, students of the acting classes, coordinated by the director Claudio Hochman, who work at the Inatel Academy.
In these meetings, they develop the expression of the body, the voice, the emotions, the composition of characters and creativity.
With seven years of existence, the group has created original pieces and performed texts by Tennesse Williams, Goldoni, Durrenmatt and Shakespeare.
Two years ago, they presented their performances in Lisbon bookstores, with texts by Gonçalo M. Tavares.
The exhibition dedicated to the Portuguese portrait, from antiquity to the twenty-first century, which has been patented in the MNAA since June, will be extended until October 14.
The exhibition “Take the Natural Pole, Portuguese Portrait Survey”, which opened on June 28 and was to close on September 30, about 200 works of multiple artistic disciplines, constitutes the first part of a diptych that will continue in the next year.
