Gonçalo Waddington

O Nosso Desporto Preferido - Presente

Our Favourite Sport is a tetralogy of plays about our evolution as a universal species, written and directed by Gonçalo Waddington. In Now, the first piece, a misanthropic scientist dreams of creating a human species free from the biological imperatives of nourishment, digestion and, perhaps most importantly, reproduction – a species dedicated exclusively to hedonism and abstraction. According to him, this is the natural evolution of our type 0 civilization to type 1 – a global, multicultural, multiethnic and scientific society.
