Quem sou eu? is a creation project, product of the strong will to work with communities, with the aim to raise awareness to the arts and to promote social inclusion.
It is a kind look on people taken through self-portraits. It's a trip down memory lane looking for everybody's inner beauty.
Throughout this creation we go through the layers of life and the signs of time and how it moves around in its perpetual movement allowing for renovation, so often unnoticed. We want participants to experience the magic of time, the wealth everybody has within him or herself, and to celebrate together their lives, with everything beautiful and emotional that each ones contains.
Teatro de Marionetas do Porto was created in September 1988, the same date in which the company was present at the official selection of the Festival Mondial des Théâtres de Marionnettes, in Charleville-Mézières.
The quest is to always find new ways to create puppets, and new ways to set the rules for this form of theatre, regarding interpretation and the links to other art forms such as dance, visual arts, music and image.
