Mindelo, Mar 29 (Inforpress) – The President of the Republic, Jorge Carlos Fonseca, asked this Saturday that, as in ancient times the theater can meet the populations in the most remote places and “illuminate the faces of those who are far from the cities”.
In his message on the World Theatre Day, celebrated on March 27, the Head of State encourages reflection on how to be, in actors, directors, playwrights and in the enthusiastic and loving audience.
“We have our theater festivals, such as Mindelact, the groups that, on the various islands, dedicate themselves to it, carrying to the stage this way of living so ours, bringing moments of relaxed and questioning. Different generations are reviewed in the pieces. They find in them their people, their talk, the anxieties of the neighbor, questions of the ‘tempu qui dja muda’ (the changing times), the vein of hope continuing to run among us”, he considered.
Therefore, Jorge Carlos Fonseca believes that one should “ask for more, do more, demand that, as in earlier times, the theater could meet the populations in the most remote places”.
