Summary
Although ephemeral, theatre is a site of deep ethical questioning, a place where choices are made by working with our individual emotions and social existences. This chapter reflects upon the ethical-political challenges that were faced during a collective dramaturgical process of “adapting” a literary narrative—Alexandre Herculano’s novel Eurico o Presbítero (Eurico the monk, 1844)—into a theatre performance, staged at Lisbon’s National Theatre (TNDMII) in 2012. A major challenge of this devised theatre process consisted in “translating” the ethical drive of the nineteenth-century Gothic novel for a contemporary audience in the context of Portugal’s ongoing debt crisis within the EU.
