The End of Portuguese Colonialism (installation)

Hotel Europa

In The End of Portuguese Colonialism, André Amálio invites us to explore seven years of research into Portuguese colonialism, resulting from his work with the Hotel Europa theatre company and his PhD thesis Rewriting history through postcolonial documentary theatre. Amálio interviewed more than 100 people who lived through the colonial period, collecting maps, books, videos, family photographs and war documents. Now, all the material that he gathered together is shared in a documentary installation and a performance lasting 13 hours.

The installation is thought of as a work space that can be appropriated by the audience, whether to organise a lesson on the theme, launch a public discussion, study the available collection, or just visit. 

The End of Portuguese Colonialism presents a kaleidoscopic vision of history, interpreting memories and testimonies. Thirteen uninterrupted hours of theatre to think Portuguese colonialism and 13 years of liberation wars.
