This is the first text by Gil Vicente, written and performed to celebrate the birth of Prince John, future King John III of Portugal. This text from the G. Vicente’s work is a reference in all the approaches that are made to the ‘father of Portuguese drama’, so that its staging today constitutes an excellent tool for teachers and students.
‘But it’s not an attack! It’s ACTA that thus marvels a new theatre audience in schools, with Monólogo do Vaqueiro, by Gil Vicente, performed outside conventional stages.”
