The Mistery of Gascons' Christ by Nao d'amores
The theatre company Nao d’amores is dedicated to the research and staging of renaissance and medieval theater from a contemporary point of view.
The dramaturgy is a recreation of the liturgical ceremony performed at San Justo’s church in Segovia, Spain, rediscovered following the study of historical texts and research of musical pieces that could have been part of that ritual. As a result, the play combines actors’ work with puppet theater and live music, in line with the origin of modern theater. It is a journey to the end of the Middle Ages, through a microcosm built up with symbols, metaphors and allegoric images.
About Nao d’amores
In 2001, Ana Zamora founds Nao d’amores Teatro with a group of people coming from classical theater, puppet theater and early music. The company is dedicated to the research and staging of renaissance theater, focusing on plays and playwrights that are important to understand the history of theatre, but are not often on stage.
The Company’s work on primitive theater is widely 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.
