L I M B O is a show made of music, dance and auto-biographical stories. A group of young actors, from different nationalities, try to share little fragments, moments, that changed something within them forever. The line drawn between fiction and reality is blurry, real depositions and tales are mixed up.
The fact that L I M B O is a site specific show adds a different sense of occupation, both for the actors and the audience.
It may be a show about friendship, or about getting old fast (the endless fight of Humanity against Nature), or even about the fear of disappearing, of giving up - to sleep... and to fear never waking up again.

Causas Comuns is a production structure that has as its main objective the creation of theatrical performances. It arose from the need of Cristina Carvalhal to extend her activity as an actress into the field of stage direction, but is not limited to the presentation of productions of her authorship.
The creative and technical teams, constituted specifically for each production, count on the regular participation of some collaborators and seek to bring together well-reputed creators from the most diverse fields w
