In Partnership with

FESTA DOS ANOS DE ÁLVERO DE CAMPOS

Join us for the Party of the Century! We are celebrating the art of lying, Cheeky Besom Productions 1st Anniversary and Festa Dos Anos De Álvero De Campos. Álvaro de Campos is a heteronym of Fernando Pessoa and they sometimes quoted and interacted with each other and other people.

FEATURED SHOWCASE: Poet, Jim Ferguson, who will share their interpretation and reading of de Campos’ poem, Birthday.

BIO: Álvaro de Campos, born in Tavira, Portugal, 15th October 1890, was a naval engineer who studied in Glasgow, travelled to the Orient, and lived outrageously in London. He was sent to Scotland to study mechanical and naval engineering. He was taught Latin by his Uncle who was a priest, “he is tall (1.75 m tall, 2 cm taller than me), thin and a little prone to bow.” Álvaro de Campos’ work appeared in Lisbon magazines between 1915 and 1935. Remembered mostly for his poetry, in his own day he was celebrated-and maligned-for his scathing manifesto, outrageous remarks in interviews, and polemical essays, several of which sharply criticised the opinions of his creator, Fernando Pessoa (1888-1935), Portugal’s greatest modernist writer.

CALLING ALL CREATIVES dust of those works in progress and put on your best prose for a night of literary readings, music and performance. Speakeasy-style! Join us as we toast the written word with readings in English, Gaelic, and Scots. We’ll be celebrating the original spirit of the Speakeasy. So from prose to slam poetry – anything goes! In Álvaro de Campos’ world “things must simply be felt.” Our theme for the evening then is what do you feel? Open to interpretation. Or, read your favourite Álvaro de Campos poem. Each artist will be given a 5-7 minute slot to be allocated on a first come, first served basis. Slot times will be shared on the night. To secure a slot contact: Ruby McCann: mccannruby@gmail.com.
