Written and directed by Paulo Castro. The Basement. AC ARTS. (S.A.). Until 25 September.
Experimental theatre often fails because of a lack of story and character arcs, not so Underground, which stakes itself in different territory. In a word: brilliant.
Reminiscent of ABC3's The Tribe, the underground attracts all the people society wants to forget: gang members, sexual fetishists, paranoids, schizophrenics, political agitators, alcoholics, drug addicts, homosexuals, depressives, nationalists and suicides.
