Gertrude Stein was an interesting lady in every sense of the word. Free-thinker, controversial World War II figure, lesbian, writer, poet, she knew many influential people, and was, and still is, quite influential herself. But perhaps the most influential person in Gertrude’s own life was Alice B. Toklas.

From the New York Times (1986):
“It was from Ernest Hemingway that the late Win Wells took the title of his play, ‘Gertrude Stein and a Companion.’ Though Hemingway had variable feelings about Gertrude Stein, he was quite clear in his attitude toward Alice B. Toklas. He found this ‘small, very dark,’ hook-nosed woman ‘frightening,’ and in A Moveable Feast he disdainfully referred to her only as Miss Stein’s ‘companion.’

From the organizers of this one:
“Fernanda Lapa directs Win Wells’ Gertrude Stein e Acompanhante. On stage, an improbable dialogue between the deceased American writer and poet Gertrude Stein and her life companion of 25 years, Alice B.Toklas, who invokes her to give her opinion on her favorite subjects: herself, literature, painting, art. Both characters interpret, several times, other characters who passed through their lives, like, among others, Gertrude’s brother or Picasso and his wife Mabel Dodge. The play goes back and forth from their first meeting until their deaths. More than a gay play, as it has been considered, it is a performance about a love relationship that shows us important characters of our culture. The adaptation by Escola de Mulheres is translated by Francisco Villas-Boas and the music is by Nuno Vieira de Almeida, who, on stage at the piano, comments on the action with pieces from the Modernist period by composers who knew both Stein and Toklas.”

*Although love is universal, you might need some Portuguese for this one.

to Jun 30 | ART WORKSHOP | Atelier Sardinha | Chiado | FREE @ Rua Nova da Trindade 20, 1200-303 Lisboa, Portugal | Lisboa | Lisboa | Portugal

Sardines.
If you’ve ever been to Portugal, you know they’re a thing. Especially this saintly time of year.
Sardines look stupid, are affordable, easy to prepare, easy to eat (the bones are edible too, trust us), and they taste from ok to good.
Drawing them, however, is not an easy task, as some of Atlas’ own staff have learned in recent years. It’s a long story…

If you, however, have ever wanted to perfect the art of sardine representation, then Atelier Sardinha invites you to bring the whole family to their free weekend workshops.

Here’s what they tell us:
“Integrated in the 100% Sardinha exhibition, Atelier Sardinha invites different Portuguese artists to explore various artistic materials and techniques such as drawing, painting, collage, and printing.”

The workshops run through June, with hour-long sessions on Saturday and Sunday afternoons, at 15h30 and 17h30.

Remaining Sessions:
15 JUNE:
15H30 – MARIA REMEDIO.
17.30 – MANTRASTE.
All ages.
