Hg2 : The Hedonist

Chapito

A unique experience and place to visit in Lisbon is Chapitô, a circus school set up by Portugal’s first female clown comprising a circus school, theatre group, bar, restaurant and various youth projects. The theatre, home to the Companhia de Chapitô, is a small space suited to the group’s humorous, physical and confrontational style of performance.

Artistic direction is courtesy of John Mowat, of London’s Oddbodies theatre group, and shows are in a mixture of English and Portuguese. After the show, share a drink with the cast in a makeshift bar below a colourful tree-house belonging to the school crèche. A unique experience.
