Luminoso Afogado by Teatro Griot is the company’s first experience with a text of a Portuguese author. The director and actress Zia Soares revisits Al Berto twenty years after having worked with him at the time of his death on an adaptation and staging of his book “Lunário” – later the play would be called “O Canto do Noitibó”. At the time, Zia Soares was working on her first staging and Al Berto was working on his last artistic project.

Luminoso Afogado is a kind of shadow line in which – when confronted with a mirror, with death and the passing of time – one fails on recognizing oneself, lasting between being what one is and other irretrievable and absent. It’s a performance where “silence is definitive”, where one sways between life and death, memory and the most absolute oblivion. A plunge where breathing is suspended in another time, another place.
