With the support of the Embassy of Portugal in Turkey and of the Camões - Instituto da Cooperação e da Língua, the Portuguese theater will be highlighted in this year's prestigious International Festival of Theatre in Istanbul, organized by the Foundation for Art and Istanbul Culture (IKSV).
The piece “Zululuzu” is produced by the company Teatro Praga, and co-produced by Teatro São Luiz, Rivoli Teatro Municipal do Porto, Teatro Campo Alegre, Casa Fernando Pessoa, International Festival of Theatre in Istanbul and Theatre "La Ville" (Paris).
This work is the first piece of Portuguese theater to be shown in Turkey and marks the beginning of collaboration (that we want to last) between Portugal and Turkey in this artistic discipline.
It is based on Fernando Pessoa's texts and focuses in particular on the life of the great Portuguese poet in South Africa and Lisbon.
“Zululuzu” is presented to the Turkish public, in worldwide preliminary debut, on 19 May at 20:30, and on May 20 at 15.00 in the famous Cevahir Sahnesi room in Istanbul.
The play is presented in Portuguese, English and French, and it will be subtitled in Turkish. It will last approximately 120 minutes. Following presentation, on May 19, there will be a period of questions and answers with Mr. Pedro Penin, co-responsible for the script and staging, along with Mr. André Teodósio, Mrs. Cláudia Jardim and Mr. José Maria Vieira Mendes.
