In its second year of life, the cultural project LAVRAR O MAR - the performing arts at the top of the mountain and in the coast of St. Vincent, wishes to expand and deepen the relationship with its public, residents and tourists, who have approached the performing arts in this territory through our proposals.
This time we invite our public to participate intense and actively in our programs. We want to create experiences that make sense to people, that entertain, that invite people from different backgrounds and countries to get together, through the arts, in this land of mountains and ocean. This year, we want to invite the public to cook, to swim, to savor what we have to offer.
To begin, we will present PASTA E BASTA, that will take place in the Grupo Recreativo Folclórico do Rogil. It is a memorable experience somewhere between theatre and gastronomy where the public itself will cook the pasta fresca, in the good italian way, while listening to a love story, a fiction written by the portuguese writer Afonso Cruz. We also offer a special version for families with children.
Knowing about the Batata Doce Festival, we have prepared a sui generis dinner - concert in the VÁRZEA ⎜Farm & Bistro, during the festival weekend, CONCIORTO, offers the public a wonderful meal cooked by the italian chef Luigi Gautero helped by two musicians Jean Luigi Carlone and Biagio Bagini where the vegetables just picked from the farm can be heard in a very suggestive performance and eaten simultaneously.
VASSILISSA is a russian tale for young children and adults that tells the story of a little girl that is asked to search for the fire in a dangerous and dark forest. About the intergenerational power of intuition, the result is an initiation to the fabulous game of theatre.
For the last days of 2017, we invite all living and visiting the Algarve at this time of year, to join us in the Heliport of Monchique. KLAXON is a fantastic New Circus performance, filled with ambitious acrobatics and live music. Six acrobats and five musicians with a russian training in the circus disciplines will fascinate us until midnight in their fabulous circus tent.
