At first, we find the dictionary in the shelf. We notice the dictionary hasn’t been opened or flipped through in a long time… it has been just standing there, alone. We hold it and feel its weight. We close our eyes and open the dictionary to a random page. We mark a point on the page with our index finger and open our eyes: What word do we find?
Dicionário is a collective game for children and a challenge for the adults who accompany them. In four episodes, released by LU.CA – Teatro Luís de Camões in February 2021, SillySeason offers a journey into the universe of a selection of words – long and short, easy and difficult – that can be found in a dictionary.
To participate, the only thing viewers need is, of course, a dictionary!
What is the longest word in the dictionary?
And how many letters are there in this word?
Do dictionaries include the meaning of the word “dictionary”?
Words are abstract. Can we turn them into objects and specific actions?
(Abstract? Specific? Such difficult words…)
