Another year is gone and here is another one that has already arrived. 2019 started and will bring news but it is good to know that there are traditions that remain.
One of them is to see here, with cultural suggestions friends of the portfolio for Lisbon and Porto, on the weekend that now arrives, the first of the new year.
There are still remnants of Christmas to enjoy, gifts of 2018, but also new adventures for 2019. The best thing is to see below what you can see these days January 4, 5 and 6. And you know: on Sundays, there are many museums and monuments around the country outside the open doors, waiting for your visit.
There is Japanese cinema in the Museum of the East
In January, every Sunday is synonymous with Japanese contemporary cinema in the Museum of the East. The cycle is free and will include four works that did not debut in the Portuguese commercial circuit. It is, therefore, a golden opportunity to see films from the country of the Rising Sun. Check out the movies you can watch this month for free.
‘In Bocca al Lupo’
This Italian expression is used in the performing arts as a way to wish good luck to those who go on stage. In the theater, the actors step on the stage without a safety net, but the audience does not see what goes on behind the scenes. ‘In Bocca al Lupo’ portrays this world and the actors moments before they enter the scene. Exhibition and photography of David Cachopo to see in the Fnac Alfragide until the day 9 of January.
The City of Filipa Oliveira Antunes
At Fnac do Cascais Shopping there is a show of sketches made by Filipa Oliveira Antunes to be discovered, with the design being “a tool of expression but above all knowledge and understanding of the place”. The exhibition is open until 23 January. More details here.
Under the flame of the lamp of Francisco de Holanda
‘Under the Flame of the Lamp’ is an exhibition that accompanies, through dozens of books, the journey of Francisco de Holanda, the figure of the sixteenth century that marked the Renaissance between us and whose legacy lasts until our day. The exhibition is at the National Library in Lisbon until February 16.
There is an organ cycle in Lisbon
This Day of Kings (January 6) is celebrated with the music of André Ferreira, an organist who passed through the conservatories of Amsterdam, Lisbon and The Hague and who is currently an organ teacher. We can hear it at the Cultural Forum José Manuel Figueiredo, this Sunday at 4:30 p.m.
Yoga at Quinta das Conchas
Until February, on Sunday mornings, at 10:30 a.m., there is Free Yoga to experience at Quinta das Conchas, one of the largest green spaces in the capital. It is the ideal opportunity to discover this ancient practice, outdoors and in good company. Learn more here.
(Still) there is Christmas in Porto
This year’s Invicta Christmas program has seen a host of attractions, from the Fantasy Square to the two ice rinks, music from different trends and genres, markets, street animation with humor, children’s stories and much more to take advantage of. January 6th. It should be noted that the city’s Christmas Tree is located in General Humberto Delgado Square. Look for more details here.
Concert of Kings
The Portuguese Symphonic Band celebrates the Day of Kings the day before, this Saturday. There are works inspired by popular atmospheres, from Cuban rhythms to Brazilian choro, through the dances that animated the American salons in the transition to the twentieth century. Also, the Portuguese music could not miss in this special program, standing out a work of Fernando Lapa. Everything to listen to from 7 pm at North Shopping.
Portobello … Porto Belo
Every Saturday, the historic and world-famous London market of Portobello has a version to think about the ‘relax’ at Invicta. Here is Porto Bello, which has several benches. Purchases will have to be paid with the effort of the wallet, the ride not for that.
Where Carlos Alberto Square
When Every Saturday, between 10 am and 7 pm
Friday from The Fridays
One year goes by, another arrives, and the Fábrica da Nortada does not stop. This Friday, and very appropriately, there’s The Fridays to listen to in this space on Rua Sá da Bandeira. Meeting scheduled for 22:45.
30 years of Rock in Rio
Long before arriving in Portugal, Rock in Rio was already an odd event on the other side of the Atlantic Ocean. Over the course of three decades, many stars have passed the stage and many moments have been recorded in photographs. It is precisely these photographs, captured by the most diverse photographers, that can be discovered until January 10 at Fnac do Norte Shopping.
Good weekend and good cultural offerings!
