Do you like theater and acting? You can now sign up to participate in the filming of "AoMar", the new creation by Graeme Pulleyn, Patrick Murys and Ricardo Augusto, which counts on the participation of the community, with or without theater experience - men, women, children of all ages, from the municipalities of Ílhavo, Águeda, Viseu, Trancoso, Guarda and Almeida. The community will participate in the filming, which will be part of the stage show that will be presented in Ílhavo and on a national tour during the year 2022.
AoMAR is a theater show that portrays a journey that begins near a stream near the village of Vale da Mula, on the border between Portugal and Spain, and ends on a beach somewhere in the municipality of Ílhavo. The main characters in this theatrical journey are contemporary versions of Don Quixote and Sancho Panza from Miguel de Cervantes' classic novel. Quixote is a crazy old man who decides to try and change the world with his own hands and live according to the code and values of the Knights of the Round Table. He has an old motorcycle with sidecar that he christens Rocinante. Sancho Panza is the mechanic in the village who spends his life repairing chainsaws, brush cutters, and once in a while, a Famel or a Zundapp. Together they set off on an epic journey that will take them (always on back roads) to the sea.
During the creation of AoMAR, Graeme Pulleyn, Patrick Murys, Ricardo Augusto and the show's team will recreate the journey. After embodying the characters, they will embark on the journey that will be filmed by director Leandro Silva, with the help of people from the communities of the municipalities of Almeida, Guarda, Trancoso, Viseu, Águeda, and Ílhavo.
