This festival already has nine editions that took place between the years 2000 and 2019. They gave rise to a CD and four DVDs. He returns again this year for its 10th edition with Cineteatro Louletano to receive several tunes in competition, on a night that is expected of a lot of music, good mood and academic spirit. The Tuna Universitária Afonsina de Loulé is a tuna where the elements belonging are exclusively male, thus respecting the old tradition of student troubadour. This project started in mid-November 1999 with some ideas formed by members of TUNAAF – Tuna Académica Dom Afonso III. These ideas were finally implemented in a meeting carried out by five students: Carlos Viegas, Emiliano Silva, Hugo Lopes, João Rodrigues and Júlio Guerreiro. This meeting took place on December 1, 1999, when TUALLE was founded, in one of the most emblematic cafés in the city of Loulé, where the well-known poet Aleixo used to recite his poems, Café Calcinha. From this meeting was born the Great Council, the founding entity of Tuna.

Direction by Sofia Dias & Vítor Roriz This piece arises from the comparison of the research tools and choreographic composition of Sofia Dias and Vítor Roriz with the bodies and sensitivities of the artists of the Companhia Maior. A piece that begins with an appeal to experimentation, which is nothing more than an attempt to encounter what we have not mastered or puts us in a zone of conflict, risk and even bankruptcy. It seems to us that it is in this place, between what is dominated and what is unknown, that the body acquires the quality of the present – a transparency that allows to see its way of acting and thinking. The place of singing is empty is a game of alternations between the abstract and the figurative, the recognizable and the strange, the individual and the collective, the biographical and the fictional. A composition of sound scores, gestures that connect with words, brief narratives interrupted by movements and objects that give rise to voices.

Animale, dance at its finest. Debuted at the Venice Biennale and winner of the 2018 Danza & Danza Prize – emerging choreographer. Animale is the deliverance of nature, of the human, of all that is sublime and animalistic. It is an absolutely unmissable piece that lives through an interpretation with a rare, chilling, truly sweeping quality. Rarely is such a perfect balance found between strength, intensity and poetry. Duet for two dancers results from frenzied questions and answers, full of emotion, tension and humour. It’s all this and more. In this performance two men save themselves by striving to answer the many questions that assail performers of contemporary dance. This duet is “a repertoire of movements for all states of emotion and dance: unexpected, illustrious, impressive, spectacular, exhausting, erotic, beautiful.” Lilo Weber (NZZ newspaper)

This work explores the father-son relationship in a wide spectrum, like a shipyard and arena where spaces, times and states made of the tension between what is domesticable and what is indomitable come into play. Between animality and humanity. Bodies in metamorphosis and unfolding. Created in close relationship with the two singular artists who will be on stage – Beatriz Batarda and Romeu Runa -, the piece addresses issues of gender, affiliation, domesticity and the limits between reality and fiction. Continuing his exploration of the forms of representation, Marco Martins starts from these premises to create a show that crosses languages to address issues related to the perception and conditioning implicit in our notions and experiences of descent and ancestry.

“Faces do Acordeão” is a project created in the ambit of the Garvefole Accordion Association’s first anniversary. A show created around the accordion takes place on the stage, with the participation of several young laureates in national and international competitions. This musical moment promises a lot of irreverence, virtuosity and emotion, with a new approach to immortal themes, where the phonic brilliance of the accordion, combined with the beauty of the sounds of the classical guitar, violin, double bass, percussions and voices, in an orchestral and captivating environment, predominates. The prestigious teacher and accordionist Nelson Conceição signs the artistic direction for this concert. Originally from Bordeira, a place rich in great accordionists, the musician has had an inspired and dynamic journey from his childhood to the present, embracing a notorious diversity of genres that allows a symbiosis between ancestors and contemporaries through the exploration of relations between fado and tango, corridinho and classical music, or traditions / charolas and jazz manouche / gipsy.

For this very special concert, on the eve of the municipal holiday, an ensemble will be formed with teachers from the Conservatory who, under the coordination of Sérgio Leite, will join the prestigious singer and actress Sofia Escobar to create an alignment that revisits the universe of musicals and of soundtracks for cinema. Sofia Escobar is one of the best known personalities in Portugal. Born in 1981, in Guimarães, and at the end of the course, at the Porto Conservatory, where he studied classical singing, he decided to risk everything and asked for a loan in order to study singing and acting at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama, one of the most renowned schools of London arts. She later took on the role of alternate actress for the main character of “The Phantom of the Opera”, a play by Lloyd Webber, where she now assumes the main role. She won the “Best Actress in a Musical” award at the Whatsonstage Theatregoer’s Choice Awards and was nominated in the same category at the Laurence Olivier Awards for her performance on West Side Story. She was a judge at Got Talent Portugal between 2015 and 2016. Currently she divides her […]

The starting point of this session is the anthology CD of Oral Heritage of the Municipality of Loulé launched by the Louletan municipality in 2019, in an exhaustive compilation that is the result of a thorough investigation work developed since 2004 by Idália Farinho, Maria Aliete Galhoz and Isabel Cardigos. After the books Contos (vol.I), Romances (vol. II), Oração (vol. III) and Cancioneiro (vol. IV), also by the same team, this new compilation is, once again, a precious document for the knowledge of the cultural identity of the municipality of Loulé and for the preservation of its collective memory for future generations. From this universe, a live musical show is now presented, with the participation of several informants who were involved in the collections carried out by the team of researchers, which are joined by several invited musicians and singers. This trip through the traditions of Loulé, which includes wheel fashions, work songs, traditional romances linked to festive seasons and other pearls of orality, will be accompanied by the tasting of various local flavors, as has been customary.

The Italian Cinema Festival, the main event in Portugal dedicated to Italian cinema and culture, celebrates its 13th edition in 2020 and will be in Loulé for the seventh time, from May 21st to 24th, again in the intimate setting of the Auditorium of Solar. In addition to showing some of the best productions of recent Italian cinematography, the festival will provide the Algarve audience with special ingredients in the areas of gastronomy and music. The Festival thus intends to be a moment of encounter and discovery of the cultures of two countries that, despite the distance, have many affinities. It is an international festival that is present in 20 Portuguese cities and also in Angola, Mozambique and in all the main capitals of Brazil.

In 2020 Cineteatro Louletano hosts the Promenade Concerts cycle, a musical journey in which the whole family is invited to discover surprising curiosities about Classical Music! With a different format, these concerts have a strong pedagogical component and each work is presented by a narrator who gives a brief explanatory introduction. To encourage the presence of the little ones, the organization promotes a hobby throughout the cycle and culminates, in the last concert, with the drawing of prizes!
