Once upon a time, in an uncertain space and time, somewhere in the evolution from mouse to man, a being closed in its own labyrinth.
Director Ricardo Neves-Neves and performer and clown Rui Paixão get together for the first time and create a show without text, full of sound and visual effects.
On stage, they take us to a retro-futuristic universe, in garden-green tones, where there is no shortage of Renaissance statues, but also giant octopuses, swarms of bees, frightening owls and endearing vacuum cleaners.
Between laughter and terror, between nonsense and the meaning of life, between theater, dance, and performance, Hamster Clown speaks of dreams and nightmares, of confinements and liberations.
And it matters little whether we are men or mice – we all end up skinned.
Hamster Clown takes the stage at 9:30 pm.
