Surrendered to the contingencies of this conditioned lack of definition, we listened to our usual readers and listeners and decided to end this strange season with a session guided by Ana Lázaro, in partnership with Teatro do Eléctrico, on July 2 (Thursday), at 9:30 pm, via ZOOM.
It is, therefore, extremely important that registrations are made in advance, so that we can send the text as well as the author’s instructions to potential readers. To do so, just send an email to email@example.com, by – no later than the 30th of June.
⚙This event is free to attend, but only the meeting link will be sent to participants who register in time.
