Teatro dos Aloés was founded in 2000 by a group of actors who had previously shared a number of projects and experiences. The company was named after A Lesson From Aloes, a magnificent text by South African writer Athol Fugard that talks to us of friendship, mutual trust, the struggle for ideals, the beauty in poetry and art that makes men superior and happy beings, the power of ideas, the belief in the progress of humanity and the tranquil wisdom that comes from believing in such goals. A Lesson From Aloes shows us how to withstand adverse conditions, overcoming fear, suspicion and intrigue, when the utopia we wish to realise stands perfectly clear before our eyes.
