EXHIBITION | THE TILE ROOM AT THE TIME OF THE "ESPOZENDENSE ASSEMBLY"

This exhibition, on display at the Esposende Municipal Museum, is part of the celebrations of the Municipal Museum's 30th anniversary and recreates the atmosphere that existed around a century ago in this space of the old Theatre-Club building, where the Espozendense Assembly met, a select group of Esposendenses, formally constituted, with defined statutes, who got together for recreational and leisure purposes.

Through the wide range of objects and pieces on display, visitors will be able to understand what life was like in the Sala dos Azulejos, with mannequins dressed to the nines, its century-old piano and snooker, as well as other furniture and various artefacts, such as grafonolas, crockery, walking sticks, bowler hats and top hats, women's artefacts, documents and newspapers from the time.

EXHIBITION "ECHOES OF THE SANTIAGO PATHS"

By Vitor Machado

In a fusion between contemporary art and the ancient tradition of the Camino de Santiago, the exhibition "Echoes of the Camino de Santiago" is born.

The exhibition "Echoes of the Camino de Santiago" celebrates the cultural and spiritual richness of the ancient tradition of this pilgrimage, presenting works that embody the essence of the journey towards the city of Santiago de Compostela.

The centerpiece of this exhibition is the sculptures that convey the various moments and emotions experienced along the Camino. The main material used is pebbles, collected from the coast of Esposende, which overlap with the Jacobean routes. These are combined with metallic elements, often from reused objects, in an allusion to the items found along the pilgrims' trajectory.

Each sculpture is a visual narrative in itself, telling stories of determination, faith, and discovery. The pebbles, the result of erosion, represent the passage of time and the journey undertaken by the pilgrims. The metallic elements, with distinct shapes and varied textures, symbolize the challenges overcome and the bonds created among the walkers.

As visitors navigate the exhibition, they are invited to immerse themselves in the unique atmosphere of the Camino de Santiago. Each artwork prompts reflections on their own personal journey. Despite being static, the sculptures seem to pulsate with the energy of the pilgrims who inspired them.

FAMILY CONCERTS

The Family Concerts, organised by the Esposende Music School in conjunction with the parish councils of the municipality of Esposende, seek to stimulate a close relationship within the community itself through music.

With these concerts, performed by musicians who are part of its teaching staff, EME proposes a thematic musical journey where the sounds are shared with interpretative and explanatory comments so that the sensory experience can enhance the music understood.

The concert culminates with a short social moment so that audience and artists can socialise and enjoy the best that artistic expression can offer us: understanding the Self and the Other, the past and the future.

STORYLINE - FREDERICO FERREIRA

Where will you find the handkerchief?

Who is the culprit?

Can magic solve a crime?

These are the questions that will be deciphered in the show ENREDO, an experience of magic and mentalism that promises to involve the audience in the world of mystery, where illusion materialises before the eyes and mind.

In an environment permeated by doubts and questions, the illusionist will completely surprise the audience, taking them enthusiastically into the universe of the impossible. Magical and impressive revelations, combined with refined humour, are the expectations that can be placed on the content of ENREDO, produced and performed by Frederico Ferreira.

For 90 minutes, the show presents a series of meticulously crafted performances in which nothing happens by chance. The narrative is built up step by step, revealing a plot full of suspense and mysteries surrounding a simple silk scarf.

CONCERT "TRADITIONAL MUSIC FROM ANATOLIA, WITH TELLI TURNALAR"

Timeless Music Cycle

This project was born out of a shared love for the saz and folk music of Anatolia, that of the aşık, poet-songwriters who express the feelings and revolts of the people, that of the Alévis, for whom the saz is a sacred instrument, the uzun hava - laments with a free rhythm or dancing melodies.

The ensemble, made up of four musicians, offers a female expression of these Anatolian songs in their cultural and linguistic diversity (their repertoire is based on Turkish, Kurdish, Zaza, Armenian, Laze, etc. heritage), reflecting the richness of each person's journey.

They sing, in the style of aşık, songs that are expressed loud and clear, without fear. The strings of the instruments and the voice vibrate with the intensity of these poems. Each voice with its particular timbre is in turn a soloist or piece of an architecture made up of polyphony and subtle arrangements that include the saz (Anatolian lutes), percussion and the accordion, a European instrument whose sound here seems to come from the mountains of Anatolia or the plains of Mesopotamia. Sometimes they even resonate in unison to take words and emotions to the heavens.

The ensemble thus seeks to make heard the often inaudible voices of women, whose suffering is reflected in several of these songs.

They also sing the oriental liturgies of the different religions present in Anatolia, namely through the texts of great ancient mystical poets such as Yunus Emre (13th century), Pir Sultan Abdal (15th century), Dedemoglu (late 17th-18th century), Davut Sulari and Kul Ahmet (20th century).

It's an interesting syncretism between these four musicians. Two Europeans who lived in Turkey and two of Anatolian origin who grew up in France thus find themselves on a common quest, made up of openness, spontaneity and generosity.
