In the year that the 80th anniversary of its founding is celebrated, the Maritime Museum of Ílhavo marks the International Museum Day with the staging of the text by Miguel Torga, "Sea". Starting from this play, the director Alexandre Sampaio will develop a joint work with the community, which will involve amateur actors, musicians and dancers.

The show
Adapted from the homonymous work of Miguel Torga, published in 1941, "Sea" refers us to the life of a fishing village and the epic cod fishing. Humanistic exhortation, and not far from a dialectic of Eros and Thanatos, this work presents us with aspects of socio-cultural reflection that are important to address. The proximity to the Ilhavense context is great, so we opted to maintain the classical structure of the narrative, working a more contemporary space and a performative character, with the use of audiovisuals and various calls for community participation. It is thus sought to sediment into the collective memory a space shared by many, with a strong image and identity reference, and a heritage that certainly reflects the paths of tomorrow. (Alexandre Sampaio)
