Paula Diogo imagined the cycle ABOUT REMEMBERING AND FORGETTING to talk about how memory operates in our lives. Following PAISAGEM (Landscape) which was presented in March 2021 at the Teatro Municipal do Porto, A ESTAÇÃO DE OUTONO (The Autumn Station) is presented. This creation brings together Alexander Kelly (Third Angel), Chris Thorpe (Unlimited Theatre), Cláudia Gaiolas (TMV) and Paula Diogo in the third moment that ends this cycle which started in 2018 with a show with the same name presented at Teatro Maria Matos. Three shows to talk about what we choose to remember or forget, or what we can remember and forget.
The Autumn Station (A Estação de Outono) is a piece for two voices.
Two strangers meet regularly in non-places and reconstruct the steps that lead to someone’s disappearance. As memory aids they have only a collection of photos taken in abandoned spaces, which lost their functionality and were taken over by nature. The creation projects a fantasy where the actors have no body and the relationship with the spectators is essentially made through sound.
The show will be first presented at CCB – Black Box (Centro Cultural de Belém, Lisbon) within the programme of Temps d’Images Festival, in October 2021, and will continue to be developed throughout 2022.
