Heritales @ Teatro do Recreio Desportivo da Trafaria (Casino) (28th of September 2019)

Games in the Casino

Playing is one of the best learning practice for children and adults as stress by Johan Huizinga, Homo Ludens: A Study of the Play-Element in Culture
This is why for the European days of Heritage we decide to propose to the public a unique event of two parallel games activities: the first is dedicated to board games that will present to the audience the possibility to challenge each other throughout competitions of intelligence and other rapid skills The games will be a compendium of traditional and more modern games that revisit cultural heritages from all over the world such as Carrom(India) and Mancala (Africa), but also more modern board games dealing with archaeological quests and storytelling challenges.
The second will propose the presentation on a big screen of different video-games, from the more historical classical titles such as Portugal 1111 to the exploration mode of Assassin Creed. Moreover we will present video-games made by independents companies. These nowadays are exploring the possibility of creating work inspired in collaboration with indigenous tribes in order to promote titles that, as Gabrielle Hughes in the 2017 Edition of Heritales Film Festival presented: “respect the authenticity and protection for Indigenous heritage”.

Heritales @ Casa do Brasil – Lisbon (30th May 2019)

Kabadio – Time goes by slowly, barefoot

A deep dive into a new world, filled with rituals, music, magic, secrets, fascinating images and stories of real people who struggle to survive, keeping their traditions in the midst of a civil war and the smuggling of goods.
In the heart of Casamance (southern region of Senegal), a small Muslim village, which is a sort of mystical island protected by religious leaders called Marabus, the sound of drums lights the fire, dictating the fate of an uncertain future, where mysticism is the only protective shield.
We are in front of a large mirror. The mirror of the soul. Where you can touch the blowing wind; where you can feel the dried land under your feet just a few kilometers from the sea. Where you hear enlightened children’s laughing, spreading hope for those able to get close to them. Where time goes by slowly, barefoot.
