Resistance. Courage. Overcoming. In Ensaio para uma Cartografia we watch the construction of an individual and colective progression. This shows emerges from a path wich Mónica Calle started in 2014, based on Bertolt Brecht’s Seven Deadly Sins and Luís Lopes’s A Boa Alma. Along this path she tried to draw an alternative cartography. Firstly through the city of Lisbon and later throughout several regions in Portugal. How can you map a city, a country? How do you start over? How do you go on?
Inspired by the orchestra rehearsals of great conductors and by the movements of classical ballet, twelve actresses dance. Each show is a rehearsal, a possibility of overcoming, a new cycle in the construction of a path, a mark on the cartography that is beign built.
