The theatre festival Muestra Escénica Iberoamericana (MEI) has programmed Perfect Match, a documentary theatre proposal by the Portuguese company Hotel Europa.
This documentary theatre proposes the importance of love and relationships in migratory movements. Those movements are often seen as a threat. This is a big contrast with the gentrification crisis that most of the European cities suffer while immigrants from rich countries -who often describe themselves as expatriates- arrive. How are these two groups received differently? How are love relationships marked and conditioned by migratory movements in Europe?
The script was constructed through testimonies, stories, and life experiences of the performers, who were born in very different countries: Portugal, Colombia, Czech Republic, France, Great Britain, and Italy.
Perfect Match opens a new chapter in the professional career of Hotel Europa as a theatre company: the topic about migrations.
