Cão Solteiro & André Godinho
“I have told myself a thousand times not to be shocked again by
what people will do to have fun, for reasons they cannot explain.”
Will Self, My Idea Of Fun
Following We All Go a Little Mad Sometimes, Play, The Film and Day for Night, the theatre company Cão Solteiro and filmmaker André Godinho proceed with the research on the relationships between theatre and film, this time approaching commercial cinema.
Working with everything an audience expects from a blockbuster, the show is built with the most spectacular elements: special effects.
Those effects do not serve, in this case, a narrative – they take its place, postponing it indefinitely – and because they’re out of context, they are no longer special.
As in old cinema, functioning as a fair attraction, what will be seen is spectacle for spectacle, effect without cause, an assemblage of attractions.
We’re Gonna Be Alright is a blockbusted with sex, blood and violence.
