With a career of 45 years in the theatre, António Capelo premieres his first monologue at the Bolhão Theatre's Auditorium, an artistic project of which he is one of the founders and directors. For the author Zeferino Mota, the company's resident playwright, Nobody is built by articulating António Capelo's artistic career with multiple autobiographical voices of actors who, over the last 200 years, tell us about their concerns, the way they look and are looked at and even about the unavoidable stereotypes of the profession, such as the marginal status, the intensity or the bohemian image. Like "those who live and sing in bad weather", the show is structured as a confession that celebrates theatre in troubled times, but also its enchanted memory, its identity traces, its strength of resistance in a society where everyone has the right to be Somebody.

No one boasts the participation of a creative team of reference which, either in full or in part, has been working on the company's projects over the last decade - Cátia Barros on set and costume design, Luís Troufa on image and Mário Bessa on light design. The soundtrack for No one is by the renowned Brazilian musician Andre Abujamra, singer, composer and conductor who is nominated for the Latin Grammy 2021 as Best Rock or Alternative Music Album in Portuguese Language, with the work Emidoinã - Alma de Fogo.
