Ezequiel is the story of an automaton builder who, after a long life of dedicating himself to others and to work, loses his inner path and plunges into a spiritual experience he has never had before. Based on the story created by Norberto Gonçalves da Cruz, Ezequiel's spiritual journey passes through fantastic worlds, automata created by the character's incredible genius, imaginary creatures, imposing gardens and characters who reveal themselves as they follow Ezequiel's journey. Throughout this process, all the emotions are translated by the original music, rich in different languages, accompanied by the staging and innovative multimedia images designed by Turnino Caires. It's a story of love, of dreams and affections, of worlds and the search for the meaning of life...

Staged by Isabel Martins. It's a show in which the visual part transports us to a completely virtual reality, surrounded by sound design that uses surround technology, increasing the proposal for a new way for the audience to experience the work presented and, locally, opening up new artistic horizons.


This show makes culture accessible to all citizens because one of the sessions has audio description (AD) and interpretation in Portuguese Sign Language (LGP). For audiences who are blind or visually impaired, a moment of prior recognition of the space is organized.
