Cheong Kin I of the Dream Theatre Association is also staging The Dress Looks Nice on You, described as a “quasi-documentary play based on interviews with psychotic individuals”.
The festival’s closing performance will be Carnavaland, a play in patuá by the Dóci Papiaçám di Macau Drama Group, which celebrates its 30th anniversary this year.
