ON TOUR » THE KING IN EXILE - REMAKE
Francisco Camacho / EIRA presents KING IN EXILE-REMAKE in Rivoli Theater, one the most emblematic arts venue in Portugal on December, 7th.
In 2013 Francisco Camacho recreated "The King in Exile" a solo that was premiered in 1991 and presented that same year at Klapstuk festival in Leuven, launching from that moment on Camacho choreographic career in Europe.
In this solo Camacho drew his inspiration from the figure of Dom Manuel II, the last king of Portugal, who was knowned as "the Patriot" or "the Unfortunate" ascending the throne after the assassination of his father, King Carlos I of Portugal, and his elder brother, Luís Filipe, Prince of Portugal. His reign ended with the dissolution of the monarchy with the 5 October 1910 Portuguese revolution, and Manuel lived the rest of his life in exile enforced by the new Portuguese First Republic.
