The 91st anniversary of Teatro Rivoli will be celebrated from the 18th to the 22nd of January with the national premiere of “Mystery Sonatas/ for Rosa” by Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker & Amandine Beyer/Rosas, Gli Incogniti; the celebration of 35 years of Teatro de Marionetas do Porto with “Como um carrossel”; the live act by the Brazilian duo Trypas Corassão; the concert by the quartet Máquina Magnetica da Sonoscopy; and the launch of the 10th volume of Cadernos do Rivoli.
On the 20th and 21st, at 9.30 pm, the Grand Auditorium hosts “Mystery Sonatas/ for Rosa”, a show where music and geometry are linked through a symbol: the rose. Written around 1676, the Mystery Sonatas are a musical translation of the 15 sacred mysteries from the life of the Virgin Mary. A co-presentation with Culturgest that receives a piece by choreographer Anne Teresa de Keersmaeker, with musical direction by Amandine Beyer and the ensemble Gli Incogniti, on the 25th and 26th.
In the Small Auditorium, on the 21st and 22nd, at 4pm and 3pm, respectively, Teatro de Marionetas do Porto marks its 35th anniversary with “Como um carrossel”, which tells the story of a girl who grows up on a sort of journey along from which many questions are raised and stimulate your relationship with the world. Written and staged by João Paulo Seara Cardoso, in 2006, it is based on the text “Como um Carrossel à Volta do Sol”. In this new version, moments in Portuguese sign language were included, in a gesture of approximation to more people. This show will also be presented to the school community on the 18th, 19th and 20th.
On the 21st, at 6 pm, the 10th volume of Cadernos do Rivoli will be launched at Café Rivoli, focusing exclusively on dance and, for the first time, in a bilingual format. How can dance be recorded, historiography? Anyone who creates, thinks and writes about dance was invited to deconstruct the History(s) of Dance.
From 23:30, the live act Trypas Corassão starts, from the Brazilian duo composed by Tita Maravilha and Cigarra. An aesthetic and political project of hybrid creation between electronic music and performance. A hybrid and sensual proposal with music from Brazil and the world, from funk to jungle, chewing pop and (traditional) popular culture, historical samples, the dramatic over and the post-romantic.
On Sunday, the 22nd, closing the 91st anniversary, at 17:00, the proposal of Sonoscopy Máquina Magnetica: a quartet in which the digital electronics of the duo of Miguel Carvalhais and Pedro Tudela (also known as @c) meet the percussive instruments customized by Gustavo Costa and light and real-time video by Rodrigo Carvalho. On stage, musical perspectives intersect that have experimentation as a common point and that renew the languages of the musical vanguards, giving rise to a bright, intense, and invisibly expressive space.
The birthday program is completely free, upon collection of a ticket (max. 2/person) on the days of the sessions, from 10 am, at the Rivoli ticket office or online at tmp.bol.pt/. Entrance to the Trypass Corassão party and the launch of Cadernos do Rivoli 10 is free (subject to space availability).
