“Yuck Factor” is the latest creation of Portuguese theatre company Visões Úteis ( An original play that deals with the tensions of intercultural coexistence, and reflects on the influence of disgust on both our personal prejudices and on global decision-making processes.
“Yuck Factor” follows the path of food – its production, distribution, preparation, consumption… and final disposal, down the toilet! The play openly refers to World Toilet Day, as the campaign for a pressing issue we would rather ignore, due to basic disgust. In “Yuck Factor” we imagine a society without sanitation – not on a far away, impoverished land, but right here and right now, at the heart of our developed cities. What would you do, if you suddenly had no access to a toilet? How would that change you? How would it change us, as a community?
“Yuck Factor” is a coproduction between Visões Úteis and Centro de Arte de Ovar, in collaboration with the National Theatre S. João. It will premiere in Porto on the 25th november.
