village_underground_lisboaFeatured Resident of the Week is Duarte Vasconcellos. Duarte has been at the Village since Day 1, running @buzicoproducoes a theatre production company and actors’ agency. Duarte established Buzico! In 2011 after a 20 year career first in television production with RTP International, and then with well-known Companhia Teatral do Chiado. He worked initially from a small office in central Lisbon but in 2014 developed the agency wing of the company and decided it was time to stretch his wings and find a new space. Luckily for us a colleague suggested Village Underground just as we were opening and Duarte came along and immediately became part of the family.
Some of our favourite events at Village Underground were devised by Duarte. Mostra de Teatro Breve em Contentores is a series of short pieces performed in the containers and open to the public. We’re hosted 4 of these and are gearing up to do a 5th in 2017, so watch this space as tickets will be limited!
Currently “Variações, de António”, a show produced by Buzico!, is showing at Chapitô until December 10th, so you still have a chance to catch it. And an exciting project is in the pipeline, where Duarte will work with a Portuguese guitarist and a Chinese Pole master to create an experimental performance piece, which will hopefully tour round Europe. We’ll be promoting it closer to the time!
For Duarte, Village is like a family. He says he’ll never leave us, and we’re holding him to it! #happyresidents #happycoworkers #lifeinacontainer #villageundergroundlisboa
