NAO D´AMORES: A WORK PHILOSOPHY
In 2001, Ana Zamora founds Nao d´amores Teatro with a group of people coming from classical theatre, puppet theatre and early music. The company is dedicated since then to the research and staging of renaissance theatre.
Our first interests were some playwrights that are important to understand our dramatic history but they are not often on stage. Some playwrights with whom we share aesthetics and ideas.
We use primitive stage techniques from a contemporaneous point of view. We believe in Classical theatre as a Cultural wealth that affects directly to de intellectual and creative development of people.
Our first show, Comedia llamada Metamorfosea by Joaquín Romero de Cepeda, the first performance was at the XXIV International Classical Theatre Festival of Almagro (Spain) and won the award Jose Luis Alonso to the best young direction given by the Spanish Directors Association. The next shows we made are: Auto de la Sibila Casandra by Gil Vicente , Auto de los Cuatro Tiempos, by Gil Vicente and Misterio del Cristo de los Gascones, our first work about medieval theatre.
The work on primitive theatre of Nao d’amores artistic team is highly recognized and they have collaborated with the National Classical Theatre Company in several shows as: Viaje del Parnaso (2005) by Miguel de Cervantes, directed by Eduardo Vasco and Tragicomedia de Don Duardos (2006) by Gil Vicente, directed by Ana Zamora.
