Histórias na Canastra (Stories in the fish basket)

 

This show for all audiences presents an unexpected and funny meeting between characters depicting two different Portuguese eras and culture. Yara, a modern well-educated woman and renowned researcher in water resources sustainability and preservation, versus Ilda, a typical fishmonger from Lisbon. With a basket on her head, she never learned to read or write and never left the docks. But however she has a lively spirit filled with memories, fados, and popular wisdom. In this surprising meeting, the lives of the two women seem so different somehow intertwine by their passion for Fado, the city and the river.
