Having the tale “Sleeping Beauty” by Brothers Grimm as a starting point, an interactive play for the youth was created, in a way that they, while interfering, may express their own understanding of such relevant issues as drug addiction and its consequences, relations between parents and children, relations between friends and colleagues. This play aims to constitute a contribution for the educational theatre.

Press Highlights

‘ACTA is touring through several schools in the region. It’s a program to be congratulated for, because theatre, as an art, should be stimulated among youth. (…) The financial aids should be a reality when programs also have quality.’

‘Through the “hot seat” technique, Elisabete Martins got a moment of grandiose dramatic intensity, captivating the students, which earned her a spontaneous uproar of applauses. (…) It’s also worth to mention the way Elisabete Martins manages to discipline a group of young students, firmly and with determination, in a pedagogical way.’
