August 2017. While Europe enjoys a Summer break, Jorge Andrade and José Capela (mala voadora) and Pablo Gisbert are in residency in L’Arboreto (Italy), busy with the writing of the text of A MANUAL ON WORK AND HAPPINESS.
L’Arboreto environment is certainly inspiring – although all those trees around might inspire more moments of idleness than work. A public reading of the MANUAL will take place in December 2017.
The text of the MANUAL, once translated into Portuguese, Italian and Greek, will become the starting point for the creative process of the residences and performances which will happen in Patras, Montijo, Alcobaça and Pergine in the first half of 2018.
