In the nineteenth issue of Sinais de Cena, the article by Luís Gameiro (1867–1943) can be highlighted in Loose archive – which recalls the theatrical pedagogy of António Pinheiro (1867–1943), while in the thematic dossier the reasons why the jury of the Critics’ Award are invoked to justify the distinctions awarded. This issue includes Portfolio dedicated to Patrícia Portela’s artistic career. The Applied Studies section is, in this issue, the one that collects the greatest number of contributions, although with a very different essayistic orientation: Glória Bastos inventories and evaluates current perspectives on theatre for children; Filipe Figueiredo questions the condition of theater photography; Christine Zurbach studies the theatre translation that Luiz Francisco Rebello practiced; Arthur E. A. Belloni makes an argument around the artifice of the contemporary scene; and Sílvia Laureano Costa analyzes the trajectory of Almada Negreiros’ text – Deseja-se mulher – from its writing to its passing through the prior censorship exam and its scenic recreation by Fernando Amado, in 1963, at Casa da Comédia. Includes interview with Joana Craveiro. Critical essays on performances, together with the thematic dossier and academic articles, continue to structure the identity of this publication, aimed at all those interested in the performing arts.
