Camões: Noutra Dimensão

A compelling immersion into a colorful history in the heart of Portugal’s most important national cultural center, the Park of Nations, the Government of Portugal commissioned our client, SimEx, to create an innovative interpretation of the life of their iconic national hero, Luis de Camoes.

A complex colorful character from the 1500’s when Portugal was pioneering global exploration, Camoes was a larger-than-life blend of Shakespeare and Indiana Jones.
