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”.
