Over the years, Nuno Artur Silva has been associated with Produções Fictícias, a creative writing agency and TV content producer he founded in 1993. Between 2015 and 2018 he was director of RTP and from 2019 to 2022 he was Secretary of State for Film. Audiovisual and medium. Actually, because of this position, he sold the company that he created before joining the government. In both 2015 and 2019, he had a plan: to present the show “Nuno Arthur Silva. A Serio? accompanied by the Dead Combo group and illustrator António Jorge Gonçalves, where he talked about episodes from his life and professional experience.
Between unexpected invitations and meetings and the pandemic, the project remained unrealized. Now it finally takes shape with “Onde É Que Eu Ia?” at the Teatro-Estúdio Mário Viegas in Sao Luis, Lisbon. The stage was originally reserved between the 12th and 15th and 19th to 22nd of January, but new dates have been added for the 18th and 25th to 28th of that month.
It’s not in a good mood. Nuno Arthur Silva describes the show as a cross between a “dissertation, comedy, conference and exhibition. On stage, Antonio Jorge Gonçalves will draw in real time what is in the head of Nuno Artur Silva. The difference in relation to the originally idealized project? He talks a lot about his experience in government and what it was like to live in that reality during the pandemic.
