Work in Progress

KURT COBAIN Work in Progress


I wanted to remain anonymous (…)
I wanted to do as Black Francis: he changed his name so often that nobody really knows how to call him…
Likewise, I would like for nobody to know my real name, so when I wanted to, I could again be any Kurt Cobain.

Kurt Cobain, I hate myself and I want to die


Kurt Cobain: Work in Progress documents the creative process of the Kurt Cobain project, which involved a group of 13 young people from the city of Castelo Branco.


Along the creative process of Kurt Cobain project, Afonso Fontão and Tiago Moura accompanied the duo Ana Gil & Nuno Leão in the preparation of the rehearsals, script writing, discussion of ideas and followed the youth through the entire process, collecting the experiences they were living.
