Music, dance and performative art shows will “fill” the most emblematic spaces of the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation and the city of Évora, from today until Sunday, during the Festival Out there.
Lá Fora – International Festival of Performative Arts, which is in the 6th edition, is promoted by the Eugénio de Almeida Foundation (FEA) and presents this year “a renewed format with a program full of challenges”.
The event “is the annual meeting point between art and the various publics that run and live the city,” said the FEA.
The poster of this 6th edition is filled by “a set of proposals where music, performance, and animation intersect with the emblematic spaces of the FEA and the city”, providing “four days of intense programming that invite to circulate, share and participate”.
The opening of the event is scheduled for 9:30 pm today at Páteo de São Miguel, with a concert by the Bluish, a musical project by Vera Vaz and João Farmhouse, which began in 2017 and “already with wide national and international experience.”
With the “horizon by scene”, it is “an experience of fusion between music and place, with the landscape reinventing itself in the background,” FEA argued.
On Friday afternoon, the program starts at the Center for Art and Culture (CAC) of FEA, with “the pirouettes, costumes and extravagances” of Monsieur Culbuto.
“Coming from France, Culbuto is a playful variation on the invitation figures. Fun and truculent, amiable and playful, waiting and challenging visitors, surprised by the agility and grace and welcomes those who visit us, big and small, national and foreign,” he summarized.
In the Garden of the Painted Houses, in the late afternoon, audiences will be able to hear Ulrich Mitzlaf and his very recent album, edited last year, “10 Sonic Minis on Edvard Munch’s Scream.”
“A dialogue between the place and the musical experimentation or ten sound miniatures for the fifteenth-century frescoes of Casas Pintadas,” the organization said.
The Páteo de São Miguel ends the second day of the festival, at night, being “stage” of two concerts, one by Daniel Catarino, Évora musician who presents himself in a trio lineup, accompanied by Manuel Molarinho on bass and Xinês on drums, and the other by Bruno Pernadas, who will present his most recent record, “Those who throw objects at the crocodiles will be asked to retrieve them”.
Monsieur Culbuto will return to doing “house honors” on Saturday morning at the CAC until, at 7:30 PM, performer, dancer and visual artist Kate March will perform “Secret Epiphanies”, a solo show situated “between dance and painting”.
The song Inês Pimenta will perform in the Páteo de São Miguel, at the end of the afternoon of Saturday, followed in the evening by the bands Lavoisiser, project of Roberto Afonso and Patricia Relvas “that dialogues intensely with the traditions (old and recent) of Portuguese music, “and Kumpania Algazarra, with” nine musicians on stage “, who explore” danceable rhythms and contagious sonorities, based on vibrant multiculturalism. ”
Monsieur Culbuto, who is always present at the outing of the Lá Fora, said that the program of the festival also includes two special initiatives, the exhibition “Corpografias Imaginárias”, on display at CAC during the event, and the project “Passage”, by the artist Joana Leal, resident in Elvas (Portalegre).
