At the Torre do Tombo, Portugal's national archive, theatre maker Tiago Rodrigues found an incredibly large compilation of material which was only recently made public, related to theatre during the dictatorship that ruled the country for 48 years. Amongst thousands of censored plays found in the archive included reports written by the inspectors that had demanded cuts or prohibition of performances. Using these reports as its basis, Three Fingers Below the Knee casts an ironic gaze at the act of censorship, and our awareness of this shared heritage of censorship may urge us towards rediscovering the danger of theatre - or as Rodrigues calls it, "a sweet revenge".
