Who wants to be Saramago

Show by the Andante company based on the work of José Saramago.
“The great and decisive weapon is ignorance. It is good that they know nothing, neither reading, nor writing, nor counting, nor thinking, that they consider and accept that the world cannot be changed, that this world is the only possible one, as it is, that only after dying there will be paradise… JS in Levantado do Chão
Now, more than ever, José Saramago’s words help us understand, fight and overcome the troubled times we live in.
Who wants to be Saramago?
As in a game, we are taken through the universe of José Saramago’s writing, with advances and retreats, overcoming a difficulty here, making a discovery there.
Who wants to be Saramago?
A journey against cruelty, humiliation and lies, guided by the “Voice” and the work of the only Nobel Prize winner in Portuguese-language literature, towards a more dignified, just and true world”.
