Imaginary Gardener is a new creation of Marionetas do Porto, dedicated to adults in an
attempt to transport them to different territories where they can echo concerns, thoughts,
loose materials, pieces of life, in a kind of circular crown.
Two actors, in an encounter between puppets, objects, words, movements, small unnameable
particles, light, music and many other elements, provoking compositions and imagetic
A non-linear place is created, detached from the world. Disconcerting, delirious, without
known laws. A kind of living painting.
Starting from the literary universe, namely from some poems from the book "Sonhador
Definitivo e Perpétua Insónia", an anthology of surrealist poems written in French, translated
by Regina Guimarães, and a lot of experimentation linked to materials, one takes off into a
dream, in flight, going underground through a universe that escapes reality.
In Imaginary Gardener, there is a return to that continent of imagination, in the creation of
images that appear automatically, transporting each body to another place. The inner and
intimate theatre, persistent and endless, inhabited by an imaginary gardener, created with the
artistic complicity of a multidisciplinary team.
“Dear imagination, what I love most about you is that you do not forgive.”
