(RE)WRITTEN ON THE WIND – MELODRAMA AMONG THE ARTS

P.I: Mário Jorge Torres

Synopsis:

The “(Re)written on the wind” project aims at exploring an extensive notion of “melodrama” conceptualized in multiple art forms: popular theatre, opera, popular and canonical literature, literary feuilletons, cinema, etc. Intending to take the analytic approach beyond a limited “genre” definition, the proposed work will mainly consist in the active questioning of “melodramatic styles” by different means. Following an inter-artistic and trans-artistic methodology, the project proposes to study works that, whether in form or theme, belong partially or completely to the melodramatic aesthetics.
