Colm has been playing professionally from the age of 16, and Roddy from the age of 18. Music has taken this duo around the world, having played all over Europe, America and even Asia. Roddy tells us how the band got started, “Funny story, I met Colm when I was 17, after coming back from the Netherlands, while recording a video with a friend in Old town Albufeira, turns out Colm had a company that needed videographers, and I had a camera. So after a couple of beers and some talking I was hired and working for a company that worked with musicians from all over the world.” “After a while I became Colm’s “Roadie”, and eventually weaseled my way into playing guitar with him at one of […]

She speaks Creole. She speaks Tchokwe. She speaks Portuguese. Then, on stage, three women also speak these three languages from their position as foreigners. In each woman, an essence, personality and trajectory intersect with the certainty that nothing will ever be the same again. In this Aurora Negra, they search for the deepest roots of their cultures, celebrating their legacy and projecting a path where they assert themselves as protagonists of their own stories.

The affirmation of modernist values ​​in photography is one of the features that distinguish Silva Nogueira’s work from the 1920s and 1930s, as the 26 photographic portraits in this exhibition prove. Through this set of images we can explore the dimensions of a quadruple modernity. Firstly, we witness the profound aesthetic change of portraiture, incorporating novelties from cinema, such as close-up or light effects. Secondly, we perceive the transformation that took place in national theatre, both in repertoire theater and in Revista à Portuguesa, with a marked cosmopolitan influence, especially in the visual dimension. Thirdly, we witnessed the wide dissemination of these images in the new illustrated magazines, managing to make the new taste reach broad fringes of the public. Finally, these images reveal an emancipation and empowerment of women with an unusual role on stage, assuming their own body as a modern aesthetic, with a performative dimension.
