The five senses served at the table to mark the twentieth anniversary of Teatro de Marionetas do Porto, which began with the memorable presentation of Entre a Vida e a Morte/Capuchinho Vermelho XXX (1988) in the French city of Charleville-Mézières, the puppets’ world capital. In Boca de Cena: Teatro-Jantar (theatre-dinner), the theatre “with” marionettes uncovers unsuspected affinities with gastronomy, Artaud fraternizes with Pantagruel, the stage becomes a very performative tasting menu, the actors/waiters coexist closely, very closely, with spectators/diners and contemporary electronic music harmonizes with Schubert lieder. All this could result in a toast to the health of Marionetas do Porto, in a festive review of contents, but João Paulo Seara Cardoso wrings his neck to the ephemeris and risks an original assembly of unforeseen events, radicalizing the distinctive marks of a project that has been reinventing itself in the border of many artistic languages and where “poetry” almost always rhymes with “anarchy”. Kitchen and fusion theatre to celebrate the past with all the senses put into the future. Just as saying that the best is yet to come. Cheers!
