Miguel Loureiro

A fera na selva

Theatre
This is the story of an affair between John Marcher and May Bartram, but most importantly between us, watching, and them, postponing life.
Two actors play two characters in a sober, undetermined, perhaps timeless setting. All too sweet so as not to bolster an extreme, yet static, poisoned violence. They explain the world to us, as Marguerite Duras explains, they explain to us the powerlessness in the face of that world, in the face of the love they postpone, in the face of the fear they sense in the peeking beast, a feeling that takes over John, the looming catastrophe that will drag them to the end.

Miguel Loureiro is an actor and theatre director. He has a degree from the Lisbon Theatre and Film School. He has performed in several theatre plays, operas and performances, collaborating with artists such as Nuno Carinhas, Luís Miguel Cintra, Bruno Bravo and João Grosso, among others.
