Temporary Exhibition

My Dear Friends – Augusto Boal – Letters From Exile

25 of April to 31 of October of 2017

The exhibition My Dear Friends – Augusto Boal – Letters from Exile opens the door to a cross-analysis of the exile of the opponents of the dictatorship, on both sides of the Atlantic.

In the year Lisbon holds the title of Ibero-American Capital of Culture, bringing Boal to the Aljube is remembering the exile in Lisbon of an internationally renowned playwright, who became known in the places where he settled (Buenos Aires, Lisbon, Paris), after being tortured by the Brazilian police, in 1971.

He lived in Lisbon between 1976 and 1978, where he directed the Theatre Company A Barraca, leaving numerous disciples and a vivid memory of several experimental forms of theatre – forum theatre, image theatre or theatre of the oppressed.
