The Boldness of Spring


Universidade de Coimbra’s Botanical Garden

Monday thru Friday, March 2nd to 6th, 10h30 | School Sessions
Saturday, March 7th, 10h30 | Family Session

Marionet, together with Universidade de Coimbra’s Botanical Garden, joined the University’s 22nd Cultural Week with the show Spring’s Boldness.

Using the book by Ana Cristina Tavares “Rythms in the Botanical Garden of Coimbra’s University”, which divides the yearly changes in the Garden into 12 acts (one for each month) as a starting point, we presented a dramatizing of the 3rd act, corresponding to the month of March, when the whole garden rushes with the boldness of Spring.

A theatrical trail through some of the Garden’s main vegetable protagonists at this time of the year, in bold movements of breaking through and opening up to the future
