Play, The Film

Cão Solteiro & André Godinho

Co-created with film maker André Godinho, the piece stages the dubbing of the film “The Great Gabbo” (1929) by James Cruze and all the incidents that take place during that process. The dialogues are built with lyrics from different portuguese and international well-known songs.

“I know it’s tempting to call me a sad clown.
‘Cause my mouth tells jokes but my fingers make sad sounds.”
