“Calçadas – a Arte sai à rua” returns today, always on August 14, to the Historic Center of São Brás de Alportel, in an alternative format that guarantees the proper security and prevention of the pandemic to its participants.
In the context of a pandemic, the Calçadas Commission and the Municipality of São Brás de Alportel once again bring art to the street in the heart of the Historic Center with an open-air cinema session, scheduled for Jardim da Verbena. At 9:30 pm, the session included in the “Filmes de Sempre” cycle will show the musical film/documentary “Buena Vista Social Club”.
An initiative that allows us to remember the nights of the 1940s when the seventh art was a regular presence in Jardim da Verbena.
Admission is free, but for the safety of all spectators, seats are reduced. The use of a mask, social distance and compliance with public health and safety rules are mandatory.
Those interested should collect their ticket at the Municipal Gallery or Jardim da Verbena, just before the start of the session.
Seeking to maintain the essence of this event, artistic works will also be carried out in a reserved manner, in collaboration with the Association of Southern Designers, which will be transmitted in an online version through the city’s social networks and the Calçadas Organizing Committee – ‘a Arte sai à rua’.
The music that in each edition takes over the stages scattered throughout the historic center, is also present in this alternative program, with a set of mini-concerts that will be presented from 10 pm on the municipality’s social networks, which make known some of the musical groups that they should be participating live at Calçada 2020, and whose participation is already rescheduled and guaranteed by the organization and the municipality for the 2021 edition.
The outdoor cinema cycle promoted by the Municipality in partnership with Cinema Lua – Cinema Itinerante will return on Friday, August 21st. At 9:30 pm, the Churchyard of the Church of São Romão receives the film “O Carteiro de Pablo Neruda”.
As in the previous open-air cinema session, this is a free entry event, but with reduced seats, the use of a mask and compliance with social distance and public health and safety rules are also mandatory.
