In the first weekend of July, the Alentejo theater company Lendias d'Encantar will return to the stage, with the first of four performances integrated in the cycle «1Actor 1Músico».
Conditioned by Covid-19, Lendias d'Encantar will perform the four shows at Parque Vista Alegre, a space adjacent to the Unesco Center, in Beja, in the open air.
In this way, the organization expects that "the public can feel more secure, while enjoying the cultural moment" considering that "this is also what this initiative is made of: the improbable, the unforeseen and the constant reinvention", the official says.
Even though it is not in a conventional space, the association intends, gradually, to contribute to the return to normality, “complying with the limits and rules imposed by the General Directorate of Health for outdoor shows”, explains António Revez, artistic director of bejense structure.
Access to the «1Actor 1Music» cycle is free, but it is recommended to reserve a seat via email [email protected] or by calling 969391904.
These shows once again put on stage an interpreter and a musician who, together, present a new vision of a contemporary poet.
Subordinated, this year, to the poets of Lusofonia, the cycle will work the poetic universe of David Mourão Ferreira, Drummond de Andrade, Ondjaki and also Adília Lopes, a poet who serves as inspiration for the first two presentations.
«In the dark of cinema barefoot shoes» is the name of the first of the four shows, scheduled for July 3 and 4, at 9:30 pm, with an interpretation by Inês Minor, accompanied by musician Sérgio David.
The remaining presentations will take place in the same space, every Friday and Saturday in July (10th and 11th; 17th and 18th; and 24th and 25th).
The cycle «1Actor 1Músico» had its first edition in 2009, having undergone some creative adjustments over the years, “maintaining, however, its initial objective: the exploration of poetry as a theatrical text, as a possibility of telling stories and the connection with music, harmonious or oppositional ”, concludes António Revez.
