“A Minha Cabeça” is an autobiographical show that explores the relation between the colonial possessions of a family and their survival in the aftermath of the Carnation Revolution. One of the main elements of those possessions is an ivory bust – an elephant tusk carved into the shape of a head. Starting with a description of the certification process to which the ICNF (Institute for the Conservation of Nature and Forests) — by law —, subjects all ivory pieces over forty years of age — a web of geographical and familial interconnections is spun. Following the trail of the dead animal that allowed this family to survive the fallout of the 25th of April, contradictory, and sometimes incomprehensible, versions of the past finally surface.
