Camden Fringe: Week 1

“Written and performed by Bandeira, a Portuguese actor, the show also aims at taking its audience away from liberal London and into the coastal villages of Portugal where one might be judged according to more conservative standards.”


Sailing tells the story of a man called Prince as he struggles to find love in an old conservative village by the sea where he might not be perceived as a “real man”. In his struggle, he goes on date after date until eventually – all hopes crushed – he decides to become somebody he is not.

It is a touching and bittersweet one-man show about sexuality and repression, examining ideals of femininity and masculinity.

A journey from self-doubt and loathing, to self-acceptance. Told with a personal touch bouncing back and forwards between comedy and tragedy.

Critic reviews

There's a certain kind of melancholic sweetness in Bandeira's sophisticated and profound storytelling
