The Enigma group takes the stage at Elinga Teatro, this Saturday, September 03, with the play ‘Cangalanga, a doida dos Cahoios’, to interpret the text by José Mena Abrantes adapted from the novel of customs ‘O Segredo da Morta’ by António Junior Assisi. Directed by Tony Frampenio.
Held within the scope of the International Theater Circuit, the show “Cangalanga, doida dos Cahoios” is a final research work, for obtaining a Master’s degree in Teaching Literatures of the Portuguese Language at the Higher Institute of Education Sciences (ISCED ), framed in the academic line on CULTURE, EDUCATION and COMMUNICATION IN ARTISTIC PROCESSES and seeks to bring to light the importance of the relationship between Literature and Theater.
It also seeks to demonstrate how theater, in addition to its playful peculiarity, this way of making art gains better aesthetic contours and social relevance based on a written dramatic text that will become a spectacular text through staging, with reference to the figure of José Miss Abrantes.
The main objective is to develop, as a proposal, for a theater based on the literary text, a methodological guide taking into account the dramatic genre and the transition from the dramatic text to the spectacular text, thus contributing to the aesthetic-cultural and philosophical development of the Angolan theater. And, for that, it proposes that the creative process takes place from the adaptation of novels by Angolan authors.
It is based on the theoretical approach of socio-semiotic studies with an anthropological focus, characterized by Patrice Pavis in his work ‘The Theater at the Crossing of Cultures’ (2008) as the “hourglass” method, which explains the phenomenon of interculturality that occurs from the relationship between the source culture and the target culture: colonial fact in African countries.
