Labyrinth

Wednesday 16th October 7:45pm

In this highly physical one woman show, Portuguese actress Marta Carvalho plays a woman who has broken free of the entanglements of love, removing all traces of it – and of him – within herself, as she revels in reclaiming her own being. Fiercely feminist, it is a monologue that hovers between murder and vivid fantasy.

The work, originally written in Portuguese by theatremaker Moncho Rodriguez, has been toured extensively by Marta Carvalho in Portugal, Spain and Brazil. In this new English translation, by writer Mark C. Hewitt, the obsessive, haunting nature of the Portuguese original loses none of its visceral quality.
