The inauguration of the temporary exhibition “Manuel Guerreiro, O Homem do Jazz” is scheduled for 5 pm on May 20, which will be on display at the Portimão Museum until September 3 next. The basis of this exhibition is Manuel Guerreiro’s (1932-2005) love for music and passion for jazz, his relevant and creative musical career and the recognition of an intense artistic activity, among his peers and throughout the world. In addition to highlighting Manuel Guerreiro’s strong desire to share and encourage a taste for music in the jazz clubs he created (“O Caldeirão”/Ferragudo and “Manoel’s Jazz Club”/Monte Carvoeiro), the exhibition is a well-deserved tribute and a special tribute to his inspiring and dynamic life. The exhibition will recreate “various periods of the musician’s life, with objects, photographs, posters, memoirs, talking about this man who was one of the greatest Portuguese jazz saxophonists, with a great predisposition, since he was a child, for music. On show will be, for example, a replica of the stage, as well as tables and chairs from “Manoel’s Jazz Club”, in Monte Carvoeiro, the second and last of the jazz clubs founded by the musician.


Exhibition “And After Goodbye”, by Marques Valentim An exhibition of “Photographs with History” in black and white related to the last 50 years after April 25, 1974, the moments of our revolution from the Colonial War, through the April revolution and ending in the present day. These are unique photographs, recorded by Marques Valentim throughout his career as a photojournalist.

On the 2nd of June, at 6.30 pm, “A Gaveta” – Associação Cultural e Pesquisa Teatral, will present the show “Catadupa”, at the Portimão Municipal Library. The show’s synopsis tells us the following: “The knowledge of others interests us. That’s why we play them with a trombone, give them body, bring them to the stage, to the life of a character, Dona Odete, because she really needs it! And you, do you want to teach us something?” “A Gaveta”, was born in October 1998, in Portimão, with Sandro William Junqueira, Nuno Silva and Paulo Quaresma, and their desire to form a new theater group. Success with the public happened and gave the group strength to proceed with the formation of a Cultural Association. The objectives are to encourage theatrical research, the setting up and representation of theatrical shows, the promotion of theater courses and workshops, as well as socio-cultural actions and artistic workshops. Be present at “Catadupa”, an unmissable show at your Municipal Library.
