A stage reading of Isabela Figueiredo’s book Caderno de Memórias Coloniais [notebook of Colonial Memories] by actress Beatriz Batarda

«Caderno de Memórias Coloniais tells the story of a young girl’s journey through adolescence during the tumultuous period of the end of Portugal’s colonial empire. The setting is the city of Lourenço Marques (modern day Maputo), a space in which two characters – a father and a daughter – battle it out.» Isabela Figueiredo, in the Preface to Caderno de Memórias Coloniais (2009, Caminho/Leya)
