Original soundtrack – Ruinas – Teatro S. Luiz :: Lisboa

ruinas2016 vai começar no Teatro S. Luiz – RUÍNAS – aclamada peça da norte-americana Lynn Nottage, premiada com o Pulitzer em 2009, com musica original de minha autoria. Conta-nos as histórias dramáticas de violação e escravatura de seis mulheres congolesas fugidas da guerra, a partir de testemuhos reais, recolhidos pela autora num campo de refugiados no Uganda. http://www.teatrosaoluiz.pt/catalogo/detalhes_produto.php?id=565

 

Ruined was written after a pilgrimage through Africa, where the author conducted countless interviews on a Ugandan refugee camp that sheltered Congolese women. This interaction gave rise to a portrait of women trapped in a devastating on-going tragedy. The setting is a brothel-bar in the rain forest of war-ridden Democratic Republic of Congo. The shrewd matriarch and owner of the place – Mama Nadi – protects and profits from the bodies of women that became a battlefield between governmental soldiers and rebel forces.
A play that won the Pulitzer Prize in 2009.
