The September programme at Rua das Gaivotas 6 has a regular presence of the film club organized by our neighbors Os Filhos de Lumière, which will screen two films this month, within the cycle entitled “In the Country of Cinema” on September 15, and Old School, the curatorial project of Susana Pomba that is reaching its 49th edition.

We will once again receive Daniel Lourenço, who is responsible for the coordination of the workshop Representation and Power: Speech Policies, Dialogue Policies, which will focus on the complex and imprecise relations between representation and power and as economies of affirmation and suppression in structures representational (linguistic, mediatic, artistic …) at large condition certain subjectivities and certain places of articulation.

Wild Horse Run, a play by Andrea Hackl and Ivan Shopov on freedom and courage, which invites its audience to a “tour-de-force”, is presented on September 8 and 9 at 9:30 p.m.

On the other hand, Melania Melanoma, a piece of circumstance, a “Minajesque” or “Social Experimentalism” by Miguel Loureiro, will be at Rua das Gaivotas 6 from 12 to 14 September, at 9.30 pm.

Also in September, Frederico Dinis presents us with Whisperings, an audiovisual performance that seeks to envolve the audience in a haze of recollection, in a meditative and intimate experience, exhibited on the 16th, at 10pm.

Closing this month’s programme, Silly Season will present their new REHAB project from 26th to 27th September, an incomplete show that aims to reconfigure and redefine, giving new links and sites not yet recognizable.

In October, Rua das Gaivotas 6 hosts two festivals: the Silêncio Festival, a transdisciplinary and participatory festival that celebrates the word as a vehicle of knowledge and as an act of creation, which exhibits in our space the Rochedo installation, and Festival Temps d’Image, festival of performing arts and media art, represented in Gaivotas 6 by the show Bibi Ha Bibi, which presents itself as a contemporary ritual combining various forms of modern sacred, from the sporting struggle to the traditional inuita song, passing through the kabuki theater, for warrior hymns and for couple / mating dances.

Between 5 and 7 Odete C. Ferreira and Bruno Cadinha reflect how important the margins of an aesthetic history or a history of the genre are, in the DRLNG performance and on the 7th, between 16h30 and 20h, Daniel Lourenço returns for another one edition of the workshop Representation and Power: Speech Policies, Dictionaries Policies.

Uma FRIDA, a play by Hugo Olim, Mariana Magalhães and Sofia Santos Silva rehearses a reflection on the love speech, between October 12 and 14, at 9.30 and 15 a.m. at 7 p.m. Our schedule would not be complete without the 50th edition of the Old School, which will take place on 21st of October.
