"Teoria das Três Idades" [Theory of the Three Ages] is the name given to the vital cycle of documents.
Our starting point was the archive of Teatro Experimental do Porto. We opened drawers and dusted. We went through newspaper clippings, telegrams, rehearsal schedules and Censorship cuts; minutes, contracts and account reports; photographs, recordings and performance programmes... and all of a sudden they’re no longer just papers. They’re stories, memories and people. They’re unfulfilled dreams and conquests of several years. They’re divorces, weddings and stolen kisses at the entrance to the dressing room. They’re the living and the dead, real and imagined. It is a crossing between what we read and what we imagined happened, an attempt to retrieve the unanswered letter, and all those lives that, like a paper, also have three ages. We are not sure as to how this happened. It is a collage, an appropriation, an effort.
