“It’s a beautiful gesture, that of Alfredo Martin’s Portuguese team, of Oporto: The Name of the Streets composes a tonic meditation, combining theatre, dance and video, about the modern urban identities – the solitudes. […] of the best that Festival Premières offers this year.”

 Antoine Wicker, DNA, 15/6/2008

 

The Name of the Streets (O Nome das Ruas) addresses humanity in a confessional sense. Halted people in a psychological time, disarticulated and confused testimonies about the person’s incredible challenges. All arises as a revelation speech of an inner “self”, of a profound truth about what we are. It’s the portrait of the anti-hero – the man as being of beauty and horror, capable of the ineffable and the obscene, oscillating between normality and dissent.
