Tragédia + Tempo (Tragedy + Time, in a free translation to English) is a set of events related to comedy promoted by São Luiz Teatro Municipal, in the Portuguese capital, Lisbon. Portuguese comedians Bruno Nogueira e Ricardo Araújo Pereira are the programme’s commissioners.

According to a note on the theatre’s official website, the programme features debates, theatre, cinema, music, recitals and stand-up events — as well as “strange experiences,” “talks on relations of humour with other less important topics, such as religion and politics”. “Of all the things no one needed, maybe this is number 1,” the note adds.

The programme opened yesterday, January 9, with an interview to the commissioners by Ana Bola and Nuno Markl, at Jardim de Inverno. Events will take place in a number of venues until July 8. The detailed programme can be found here.
