April in Lisbon

 

In April we’re going out onto the streets and taking freedom with us. During this magical month, we’ll be challenging memories and preserving the values of a first day that, as poetess Sophia de Mello Breyner wrote, wanted to be whole and clean.

This year, the April in Lisbon programme takes a closer look at the stories of women.We begin with a photography exhibition set up on the streets of Lisbon, which will challenge us to reflect on the girls who live and grow up in the Gaza Strip.

We will also present a play based on women’s testimonies about the dictatorship and the revolution. The Museu do Aljube Resistência e Liberdade, a former prison of the regime, fits naturally into the programme with a series of cultural initiatives.

The second edition of the Political Festival invites us to rethink society and the ways in which we exercise (or not) our rights, through cinema, concerts, visual arts, debates and workshops.

As freedom without music is inconceivable, we’ll be planting five pianos outside for five days in several of the city’s squares and parks. In addition to all this, on the pages that follow you’ll find other sugges -tions for experiencing April to the full, in a Lisbon where today we celebrate freedom, while not forgetting places where it doesn’t exist, except for in dreams and verses of poetry.
