Each year, for one week, singing sweeps through Lagoa, and voices from all places unite in a harmonious feast of melodies and emotions. The Choir Week of Lagoa is already a reference in the panorama of Algarvian choir festivals. It began as the tiny cry of a strong and determined child, then grew with school songs learnt and sung, and now has become a searcher of new sounds and experiences in polyphonic choir singing. Each year it yearns to go farther, to innovate, to dare to fly even higher. Each year, the Choir Week of Lagoa is bigger and more mature. And with it, the […]

The story of the deepest, strangest and most secret love anyone had with Amália Rodrigues. The story of a man who existed and ceased to exist because he fell in love with an unreachable star. The story of a man who dedicated his life and death to following our one and only diva, wherever she might be. Through the fados she sang, the verses she wrote, and the passions she felt, we will accompany Amália for an hour and a quarter, seeing her through the eyes of the man who lived for her and died for her. In a show full of theater moves, we are going to get to know the Amália that only this man has known. In the fado houses, in the theaters, in the cinema, in the success outside, in the envy inside. Let’s remember some things we already knew about her life, and find out about others she never talked about. And when the curtain closes, our biggest star will be even more present in our memories – where it never ceased to shine – sublimated, now, by the ravings of the broken heart of this unknown Amália Man.

Painting Exhibition, by Clara Buser. “The Spirit of the Elements” Contemplation of the landscape as a spiritual experience and painting as meditation are the starting point for the development of this set of works. The work is not representative of the landscape, but seeks to visually manifest the subjective state of experience that its contemplation inspires. The colors and abstract shapes in the paintings thus seek to awaken in the viewer a state similar to that which conforms when faced with a landscape, that is, a contemplative, meditative state, a state of enchantment. The pure enchantment of color, its fusions and contrasts, especially in the passage from day to night, are a source of great inspiration and the observation of movement and symbiosis of elements (earth, fire, air and earth) on the walks along the seafront during the sunset. The work emphasizes color and the emotional impact it establishes with the viewer. “Color is medicine”. The fruition and pure expression of color and its manipulation through the watery technique allows an almost alchemical experience in which the fusion of colors and their observation return to the observer his own image, in the sense that they mirror his internal landscape.
