THEMATIC SECTION: FERNANDO PESSOA AND THE PERFORMING ARTS (Coord. Filipa Freitas e Jerónimo Pizarro)
Fernando Pessoa is one of the most important authors of the 20th century. Among his vast work is a fruitful dramatic production that has recently been recovered. Pessoa’s theatre occupied most of the poet’s life and resulted in a significant and varied set of plays, including prose and verse texts. Fausto, influenced by the creation of Goethe and Marlowe, the fourteen pieces of Teatro Estático, influenced by French symbolism, or Trilogia dos Gigantes, based on classical mythology, are just a few examples of his production. The next thematic dossier of the Sinais de Cena journal will be dedicated to the relationship between the work of Fernando Pessoa and the performing arts. The volume organizers invite students, researchers and professionals of the performing arts to present contributions that can expand knowledge about the dramaturgy of Pessoa and his relationship with the performing arts.
The journal Sinais de Cena keeps a permanent open call for essays on theatre studies and performing arts, without a specific subject, to be published in this section.
