The new piece by Teatro Só, “SOMBRAS”, is a reflection on domestic violence. Like it is characteristic of Teatro Só, the play focuses exclusively on the protagonist’s feelings and refrains from showing violence.
With this intimate approach, the public witnesses the pain and despair that permeate a person’s silence. This mental place, like a stuffy room without light or windows, is difficult to access. Teatro Só uses visual poetry as a method of approximation – there is often a lot more that can be said without a spoken word.
A particularly complex topic such as domestic violence is dealt with stilt theater in public space, a space in which all people can witness. A fact that a taboo usually avoids.
