Amédée ou Como Desembaraçar-se


Am√©d√©e and Madeleine have a problem: for the past fifteen years, they have been living with a corpse in the room next to theirs. After contracting the ‚Äúincurable disease of the dead‚ÄĚ, the body has started to grow exponentially, threatening to fill the whole apartment. Now, the time has come for the couple to free themselves of that monstrous hindrance. Am√©d√©e ou Como Desembara√ßar_-se_ [Amed√©e, or How to Get Rid of It] (1954) is the first three-act play by Eug√®ne Ionesco, the French-Romanian playwright who, alongside Beckett and Genet, left no stone unturned in European dramatic tradition during the 20th century. Having already staged Del√≠rio a Dois (2020) and A Cantora Careca (2021), the actor and stage director Ivo Alexandre (the artistic director of Companhia DOIS) returns to the burlesque and desperately comic universe of Ionesco. An author whose power of attraction continues to expand in ‚Äúgeometrical progression‚ÄĚ, uncontrollably overflowing from the stage to the auditorium, from the auditorium to everywhere else.
