Nights From Berlin: Portugal

January 21st, 2014

Calling All Lusaphones!

As part of a new cultural series of Portuguese language events, the SODA salon hosts a tripartite night of debate, musical intrigue and celebration.


News from Berlin. How do Berlin’s Portuguese language inhabitants see Berlin? What are the greatest challenges for them? And just what does one do in order to maintain sanity during the long, bleak winter? Several Portuguese speakers from a range of backgrounds will join together to share their different perspectives.

Audience members and the speakers alike are asked to bring an object (which could be a tangible object or something more abstract, such as video or song). People will then speak about the object and exactly what it means to them.

With Cláudio Tamele from Café Maputo of Mozambique origin, Lúcia Vicente from Lissabonbon Vintage Café and of Portuguese descent, Maria-Gracia Guimarães from SAVVY Contemporary hailing from Angola, authors of the well known Crónicas de Berlim, and finally Nilda Bezerra from ex-Botequim Carioca (Brazil) and Portuguese photographer Inês David.

After the debate, there will also nibbles from the Lusophone world and music from Angolan DJ, Mc Diamondog. The event is supported and endorsed by the website, curated for Lusophones in the German community.

The event begins at 19:00 and takes place in the SODA Salon in the Kulturbrauerei Berlin, Schönhauser Allee 36, Prenzlauer Berg, 10435 Berlin.
