The summer of 2020 will be lived in Portimão "with proposals for the whole family, both outdoors and inside, in strict compliance with the health safety rules in force", ensures the Portimonense municipality. Between cultural tours, street entertainment, exhibitions, theater, music and dance; according to the executive, "it will not be due to the covid-19 that the program prepared by the municipality will no longer maintain the reasons of interest that make it one of the most desirable destinations for those who enjoy holidays and that have an agenda full of attractions".
With a view to resuming cultural and recreational activities, the characteristics of this program have been adapted to fully comply with the rules of the Directorate-General for Health and all applicable recommendations. Thus, the agenda favored the performance of activities abroad, while a contingency plan was established for the proposals marked for the interior of municipal equipment.
During this summer period, TEMPO will attract attention with a program that highlights the humor show “Marafada Quarentena”, to take to the stage at Teatro Boa Esperança from August 1 to 29, on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturdays, from from 9:30 pm. With original texts and lyrics by Carlos Pacheco, this theatrical comedy follows the adventures of a family as hilarious as it is dysfunctional, during the confinement period of Covid – 19.
On July 15th, also starting at 9:30 pm, theater returns to TEMPO, with the surprising creation and interpretation of Rita Rodrigues “In search of a grandson”. A very old lady, who never had children or grandchildren, now feels a little alone. Therefore, you will have to find a grandchild in the public who meets your peculiar requirements.
