Venues KISMIF Conference 2018

KISMIF Conference 2018 will be held in the city of Porto, Portugal, namely in Faculdade de Letras da Universidade do Porto [Faculty of Arts and Humanities of the University of Porto] and Casa da Música – where the more scientific activities will take place – and in Teatro Rivoli [Rivoli Theatre] and some other places of Porto’s downtown, where you can see some of the cultural and artistic activities which we are organizing (exhibitions, gigs…).

Casa da Música_________________________________________________________________

Designed to mark the festive year of 2001, in which the city of Porto was designated European Capital of Culture, Casa da Música is the first building in Portugal aimed from its conception to be exclusively dedicated to music, either in public performances, or in the field of artistic training and creation. Casa da Música’s project was set in motion in 1999, as a result of an international architecture tender won by the project presented by Rem Koolhaas-Office for Metropolitan Architecture. Excavations began in 1999, at the old tram’s terminus station in Boavista roundabout (Rotunda da Boavista), and Casa da Musica was inaugurated in the spring of 2005, on April 15th.

Casa da Música was planned as a home for all types of music and it is not only part of the urban redevelopment of Porto but also part of a network of cultural facilities, for the city of Porto and for the wider world. Underlying it is an innovative and wide-ranging cultural project, which aims to make an exciting contribution to the national and international music scene, as an arena for all types of musical events – from classical music to jazz, from fado to electronic music, from great international productions to more experimental projects.

Besides concerts, recitals and other types of performance, Casa da Música also organises events for musicians and musicologists and invests in research into the origins of Portuguese music. In addition, it plays a very important role in music education. It is a cultural meeting point between music and other areas of artistic creation and knowledge, providing a space for all kinds of audiences and creators.

Teatro Rivoli [Rivoli Theatre]_________________________________________________

The Teatro Rivoli [Rivoli Theatre], owned by the Porto City Council, is one of the two poles of the Municipal Theatre of Porto (the other pole is the Municipal Theatre Campo Alegre). It is located at Praça D. João I and presents an own and regular programming, directed by Tiago Guedes and under the umbrella of the Department of Culture of the municipality.

If we go back in the history of this theater, we can say that in the 1970s, the image of the theater suffered a setback, caused by a bad financial situation. Teatro Rivoli began to deteriorate, with obsolete equipment and without regular schedule or own target public. At that time, the Porto City Council decided to buy the structure in order to return it to the city and its inhabitants. In 1992, the Theater closed for a complete refurbishment with a project of the architect Pedro Ramalho. The existing area of 6.000 m² was expanded to more than 11.000m², creating a secondary auditorium, a Cafe-concert, one Rehearsal Room and one Foyer of Artists, as well as spaces for Administrative Services and Technical Services.

In October of 1997, Teatro Rivoli reopened its doors. In 2014, the Department of Culture of the Porto City Council definitely took the destiny of the Municipal Theatre (Rivoli and Campo Alegre). For the first time conceived in its entirety by the new artistic direction, the proposal of Teatro Rivoli opens to multiple arts, with emphasis on dance, but with space for performance, theater, cinema, thought, music, literature, exhibitions, workshops, artist residencies, puppetry and new circus.
