September arrives with many new features at Theatro Gil Vicente and at some of the most iconic municipal spaces.
After a month of cultural programming taking place, to a large extent, on the Frente Ribeirinha, the doors of Theatro Gil Vicente reopen with an eclectic agenda designed to reach different audiences. There are 11 shows proposed by the Municipality of Barcelos for the following month. From cinema to stand up comedy, from music to dance, not forgetting exhibitions and educational services. There will be plenty of reasons for a September in the company of culture and the arts.
The Festival Jazz ao Largo is now in its sixth edition and brings with it a program that extends over four days. It starts on September 9, with the Italian pianist Rita Marcotulli, with the British saxophonist Andy Sheppard, on the following day, Paulo Mesquita on the 11th, and Luís Vicente Trio, on the 12th.
The little ones are not left out of the program and the morning of the 12th will allow contact between early childhood and jazz. Jazzyababum is divided into two sessions: at 10:00 am and at 11:30 am.
Cinema is also back in September with the film “A Rapariga da Mala”, by Valerio Zurlini. The session, within the scope of the Cineclube ZOOM, takes place on the 14th, at 9.30 pm. Admission costs 3.5 euros and is free for ZOOM members. There is also a discount for holders of the Quadrilátero Card or the Barcelos Jovem Card.
Humor is another new feature for the month ahead. On the 17th, at 10 pm, comedian John Mendes presents the stand up comedy show “Irritação”, based on an online rubric with the same name. The session costs four euros.
The following day, there will be dancing at Theatro Gil Vicente, with “eMOTIONS”, by Sofia Sarmento. The presentation will start at 9.30 pm and will also cost four euros.
Closing down on the 30th, the Pottery Museum will receive “Acid Acid”, by radio broadcaster Tiago Castro, by the hands of a tricycle, at 10 pm. Admission costs three euros, with a discount for Barcelos Jovem Card holders.
