Wing Wong or Ping Pong?

by Henrique Amoedo



a strange love story


Revisiting a classic, be it from any area as it is, it is always a challenge of great responsibility. The love story between a beautiful woman and a gorilla, King Kong, has fascinated mankind for many years and is also part of our history.

Revisiting this beautiful love story, within the inclusive perspective of the work developed by the Dançando com a Diferença group, was a challenge launched by the Grenzenlos Kultur - Internationales Theaterfestival (Mainz, Germany) that we gladly accepted. Since its world premiere on the 16th of September, 2011, we are sharing with the public in this way... lightly and with good humor.
