In this highly physical one woman show, Portuguese actress Marta Carvalho plays a woman who has broken free of the entanglements of love, removing all traces of it – and of him – within herself, as she revels in reclaiming her own being.
Fiercely feminist and graphic in its poetic detail, it is a monologue that at moments hovers between murder and vivid fantasy.
Originally written in Portuguese by theatremaker Moncho Rodriguez, the work has been toured extensively by Marta Carvalho in Portugal, Spain and Brazil, and in this new English translation by writer Mark C. Hewitt, loses none of its visceral quality.
This special preview performance at CPT will be followed by a panel discussion and Q&A hosted by arts and mental health charity, What’s Going On In Your Head?
