The Festival Solos Ibéricos comes from the double meaning of the word soil, crossing it with the idea of Iberian creativity.
The 2nd edition of this festival brings to the stage, Portuguese and Spanish artistic proposals, of several creators.
In many performing languages, we offer suitable shows for different audiences, searching for the major diversity of an Iberism concept as a tool for artistic (re)construction.
This edition of the Festival takes place from the 22nd of October to 20th of November and has 2 spanish and 3 portuguese shows: Stand Down, from Ángel Fragua, Mecha Show You, from Cia. Jimena Cavalletti, Os qu’emigraRAM, from OITO, Samotracias, from Mákina de Cena and Trilla, from La Phármaco.

STAND DOWN, de Ángel Fragua
22 of October | 21:00
23 of October | 17:00
Stand Down, are the memories of a man. It’s the childhood memories with the present eyes and the first silences that spoke louder than the loudest words. A journey on stage between Spain and Portugal in a mix of feelings led by the actor Ángel Fragua.
Stand Down is a solo show, where the word takes on special importance and where the personal experiences of the actor crosses with the experiences of another person that’s out of the stage. Starting from two tales of Félix Albo, Secretos de Familia and Un Roble en um Cementerio, Ángel shows us why dying for love can be the start of a story.
An Ángel Fragua creation from two Félix Albo tales.

OS QU’EMIGRARAM, de OITO – Oficina de Ideias das Terras do Oeste
5 of november | 21:00
6 of november | 17:00
What defines your home?
Starting from a collection of testimonies with those who kept staring at the sea, we propose a journey through the intimacy of the paths of this fertile land. Say the commonplaces that those who emigrated took with them all the illusions, left their lives suspended, empty bedrooms full of memories, accommodated affections to the shape of their luggage, draw wrinkles on the faces of those who stayed and those who went way, running from the path of reasons to return. What territory is built when your entire identity is in traffic? What territory is this, the dream for those who choose it, but without illusions for… those who emigrated.

SAMOTRACIAS, de Mákina de Cena
12 of november | 21:00
13 of november | 17:00
Samotracias is the scream of three women who embody the face and the voice an anonymous choir of migrants. Three women with different ages and destinations that hold themselves to the dream of emigrating. The youngest one, ambitious, seeking to get rich abroad. A widow mother who wants to run from the new forced marriage. And the eldest, who has spent her life serving others, seeks a different end to her days. Three women who want the same: leave. Do they have that same right?
Movement is the driving force of this trilingual show (pt/fr/es) which is based on the act of migrating, in which three actresses use the text as a plastic material and not as the main vehicle of communication.
Samotracias, from the text “Les Samothraces”, from Nicole Caligaris

20 of november | 17:00
Trilla is a questioning between folk and electronic, and the need to question the structures that historically dominate us. The proposal is purely intuitive, a succession of images, dances and sound passages related to lamentations, war and references from a pagan perspective. The title is one of the main keys of the play that develop the concept of work, a tribute to the current body, where the work is for capitalism such as the praying is for Christianism. The religion as production, the subjugation as a way of living, the celebration of misery in name of vitality and the power that bodies reach as they support the weight of the world.
