Sinopsis

The House Taken Over tells the story of two adult brothers living together in a house that has been in the family for several generations. Despite the seeming peacefulness, they live under a powerful, unknown threat. Inspired by the strangeness of Cortázar’s text, Portuguese composer Vasco Mendonça and British theatre director Katie Mitchell build a small masterpiece.
