Play, book launch and conversation circle at Teatro Popular de Niterói

On 30 September, the Teatro Popular de Niterói will receive a project that includes show with storyteller and actress Daniella D'Andrea, book launch and conversation circle with narrators from the city and region. “The art of self-government”, timeless narrative, provokes reflections on the theme 'government' and its relationship with a conscious conduct towards life, and will be staged at 20:00, in one presentation.


A moody and disinterested prince, raised with excessive care by a dowager queen, is placed under the observation of an elder master. From the tale of the Arab tradition “The prince, the master and the eagle”, a spectacle is designed intertwining other tales. The storyteller and actress from Niteroi, Daniella D’Andrea, wakes up “The melon city” (Afghanistan) and “The Blind Abdallah” (arabia), as well as excerpts from the work “The Walled Garden of Truth” by Hakim Sanai of Ghazna, 12th century Persian poet.

 “Philosophical tales bring different layers of understanding so that everyone can absorb them in their own way., without worrying about discovering a message. Understanding comes from personal experience. The stories aren't obvious and don't even bring answers, but they stimulate living thought”, reflects the artistic narrator Daniella D'Andrea.
