This play, called Troll Times, was part of a cultural exchange project between Norway and Portugal. I co directed with Amândio Anastácio of Alma d'Arame. The play was written by Norwegian Nina Grove Hansen, and is peopled by many of the creatures of Norwegian folklore. Her characters were brought to life by Portuguese art director Rui Pedro Rodrigues. Amândio and I steered these two strikingly distinct cultures into a head on collision, and the result was a a surprising and arresting piece of wandering theater. All photos by Paulo Caldeira.
