Pedro Coquenão was born in Huambo, the third-largest city in Angola and formerly “Nova Lisboa” (oh, colonialism…). Pedro was raised in the suburbs of Lisbon. Today Pedro is a radio, video, and music producer who is well-known locally, but more by his stage name Batida.

Throughout February, Batida takes over Casa Independente for a month of weirdness that he’s calling Alojamento Artístico Local (“Local Artistic Accommodation”). Batida says the main objective of the project is “to break down barriers and blur the distinction between formal and informal space.”

There’s an art exhibit aptly entitled “Neon Colonialism.” There’s the production and presentation of a musical called “IKOQWE.” There are friends, DJs, and a radio show. There are both artists and colonizers coexisting, eating, drinking, sleeping, making art and money, and dancing.
And maybe there’s you.

Free entry to the Arroios Junta de Freguesia Gallery Hall:

Free entry to Casa Independente:

7€ to Casa Independente Fridays and Saturdays, 17h-2h (includes Musical IKOQWE at 23h).

to Mar 30 | FILM CYCLE | Silent Cinema at Casa da Achada | Mouraria | FREE @ Casa da Achada | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

If there’s any hope left for Lisbon in the face of genocidal gentrification, rampant inequality, unintentional rape by tourists and landlords, and general good old-fashioned capitalist decay, that hope is, and has been for a thousand years, the neighborhood of Mouraria.

And tucked away in the seldom-accessed-by-tuk-tuk heart of this haven of character is Casa da Achada, a non-profit cultural organization opened a decade ago to honor and continue the legacy of local artist, writer, critic, and teacher of Portuguese Mário Dionísio.

One of the many cool things the “House of the Found” does is free silent oldie film screenings every Monday night. They’re usually preceded by a guest speaker, and have Portuguese subtitles.

*The socialist fun commences at 21h30, and seating is limited.

**Make sure to bundle up this time of year as, due to capitalism, there is no heating.

to Feb 25 | SHORT FILM | Shortcutz Lisboa | São Bento | FREE @ Cossoul | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Shortcutz Lisboa, aside from being clever wordplay, is a non-profit project showcasing the city’s up-and-coming short films.

Here’s what they say about themselves in 2020:
“Our sessions in Lisbon take place in one of the most charismatic neighborhoods, at Cossoul; you have the opportunity to watch at least three short films, meet our special guests and get to know all about new emerging projects, always presented by their production teams.

Dialogue is encouraged, so the audience is welcome to ask questions and comment on what has been shown. No problem if you are shy, you can do all this while sipping on a glass of red wine!”

In February, Shortcutz rounds up its 361st, 362d, and 363d sessions.
Come be pleasantly surprised, or check the full program on their FB page*.

*HEADS UP: Their dates are somewhat confusing — the sessions are on TUESDAYS, so Feb 11th, 18th, and 25th.
It happens… a lot…
