"PORRA 2", THE SHOW THAT HAS EVERYBODY WISHING THEY WERE PORRAS TOO...
Porra 2 takes us on a journey into what it means to be Portuguese and living in South Africa. Talking directly to the audience the award winning Portuguese actress Sonia Esgueira transforms herself into the different members of one Portuguese family, the Ferreiras, revealing the pride and struggle of being part of a Portuguese home and family. With bold honesty Esgueira shares with us the conflict between shame and conceit of being a porra. The delightful granny is back in her world of coffee cups, clothes and Portuguese paraphernalia, and more mischievous than ever...
As she goes about weaving the tale together she creates the locations and sets the atmosphere, introducing and commenting on each member of her beloved family. This time in full view of the audience, and to spellbinding effect, Esguiera transforms herself into the different family members and transports the audience into a magical world of music and dancing, recipes and tears, cooking and laughter, vineyards and fathers, grandparents, and ancient ways of being. Porra 2 celebrates a community that holds their culture close to their heart despite being called greasy, smelly, dark and hairy. The play is a testimony to a beautiful and poignant people that will have you laughing and crying.
If youre from a closeknit family, or a minority culture, this gem of a theatre piece, will resonate deep within you.
