Storyline

VATAÇA is a medieval evocation, inspired by the historical character of Lady Vataça of Lascaris. Princess Vataça came to Portugal with Queen Isabel of Aragon for her wedding to King Dinis of Portugal (13th century). She died in Coimbra and her impressive tomb in the Old Cathedral of Coimbra is surrounded by double-headed eagles, symbol of the Lascaris dynasty and the Byzantine Empire. In this fiction, VATAÇA's passion for a young gardener is returned. In a parallel narrative, we discover their love, punctuated by some anachronisms. This love is represented by a dancer, Vataça's soul. Isabel tells Vataça that, by decision of King Dinis of Portugal, she will marry an old man of the court. Years later, Vataça and the gardener meet again. Written by Fósforo ACV - Associação de Cultura Visual
