below is a list of Xavier de Sousa's plays - click on a Play Title for more information



Saudade (/saw Oaoe/) is a unique Portuguese word signifying a constant wishful longing for completeness or wholeness and the yearning for the return of that now gone, a desire for presence as opposed to absence. Presence. I have been in London for 10 years. Nowadays, I struggle to identify as Portuguese, but also don't feel British. This show is an exploration of what it means to be a migrant, of 'being from a certain place' and what makes you identify with a country, its culture and people. I am interested in how our sense of identity is influenced by our surroundings.
