2 new warehouses dedicated to arts and performance

Next weekend (29th and 30th) Pinhal Novo (20m from Lisboa) will host the new headquarters of PIA-Projectos de Intervenção Artística and Bardoada-Grupo de Percussão do Sarrafo. This place will also function as a meeting point between performance, art, dance, music, videoart and installation, hopefully bringing out new fresh projects to the market.

For this opening, a number of friends from PIA will be performing through the weekend.
I will be presenting on Saturday a new collaborative project - a 20m performance video that I recovered from my personal files (a video footage I recorded with Rita Meneses some months ago in an abandoned warehouse) with soundscape from Álvaro Presumido. After that, VJing as usual with local DJ Magau.
Open doors and free entrance. Check out the whole program, as there will be lots of good and new stuff to see/hear.

The weekend after, on the 7th November, Armazém 13 will then open it's doors. Located in Lisboa (Benfica), I can tell you this place could easily be the next LX Factory. It's a big warehouse, ideal for the purpose - to host a bunch of crazy acrobatic circus performers. Associação ADN-Artistic Develoment Nucleus (contemporary circus), Armazém Aério (circus and dance) and Fly in Motion (pro rigging). To be used as their natural training ground, Armazém 13 will also promote workshops and courses on aerial and floor acrobatics, for start.
