Outdoor Theatre of Straw in Vilarinha
Picture: The Theatre of Straw
An exciting outdoor theatre event will brighten up hot summer nights in Vilarinha, home to our Portuguese holiday rentals in the South West Algarve.
The hamlet, near Carrapateira, Aljezur, is the venue for an authentic theatre made of straw, presented by Lavrar o Mar. Based on “the spirit of the place”, it has been created by architect Pedro Quintela. He has been inspired by the sacred geometry of the nautilus shell and the shape of the human ear.
From July 1-17, 2022 the theatre will host an open-air artistic programme of music, cinema, new circus, dance and an exhibition with a selection of João Mariano photos to revive memories of Lavrar o Mar’s life through his lens. In addition, Mr Valentim and Mr Vicente, who have welcomed the theatre to their land, will have their wood oven lit.
Dance to exotic and psychedelic DJ sets from southern latitudes. Enjoy rock and afrobeat to tango and jazz, watch movies in a wonderful open-air cinema and be enchanted by performances of new circus, Chinese pole and much more!
NOTE: All spectators are asked to bring a pillow or a small blanket to sit on top of the straw bales.
