From Silva to Quim Barreiros: this is going to be the Burial of the Cat, in Braga - Showbiz



According to Nuno Reis, president of the Academic Association of the University of Minho, "Enterro 2019" has a budget of 800 thousand euros, of which close to 180 thousand are for the poster figures.

For the first time, the "burial" will take place in the former Exhibition Park of Braga, renamed Altice Braga Forum, after having undergone extensive rehabilitation works.

"It is a historic milestone for the event," said the president of the Academic Association of the University of Minho (AAUM).

Nuno Reis recalled that this is the 30th edition of the "burial" that takes place under the organization of the AAUM.

The new enclosure will have two stages, one inside the large ship and the other outside, which will only be used on nights with higher expected flood.

On the first day, after the wake of the cat and the serenade, the highlight goes to the performance of Richie Campbell.

Quim Barreiros acts on May 15, the day when, in the afternoon, the academic cortege takes to the streets.

On the 17th, the highlight goes to the performance of the Brazilian Silva.

This year, the Academic Week takes place under the motto "The cat seeks commitment".

"Portugal needs an effective commitment to higher education," said Nuno Reis.

For the student leader, in Portugal there is a constant "put and take" of rights of the student community, which exemplified the recent decline in the value of tuition fees and the increasing costs with housing.

Nuno Reis also said that "the cat looks for commitment" in relation to the new facilities of the AAUM, "looked for" since 2001.

Sustainability will be one of the strengths of Burial 2019, with the implementation of the reusable glass and the supply of energy made through electricity, leaving aside the use of diesel generators, as was the case in previous editions.
