Introduction

NINHO

“Sei um ninho.
E o ninho tem um ovo.
E o ovo, redondinho,
Tem lá dentro um passarinho
Novo.”

– Segredo, Miguel Torga 1956

NINHO

Ninho (Nest) takes its inspiration from one of the simplest poem by the Portuguese author Miguel Torga, Secret, who in just a few short lines reveals that a well kept secret can strengthen true friendship.


Ninho is the latest project by Partículas Elementares, and also their most adventurous, as the company has set out to tell the story without uttering a single word.

Pure visual poetry, the Nest unfolds in the details. With a minimalist plot, the narrative develops by chance; a child’s curiosity, piqued purely by coincidence, unleashes a web of affection.

On stage, Carlos Silva – the show’s author and only performer – features in an unhurried performance, which gains traction through the expressive, emotive and surprising artwork of Leonor Bandeira.

Ninho is an invitation to appreciate the simple things in life—things that are easy to understand and that should be kept as the most important.
