Snif Lisbon

Carlos Coelho - 2013

What does Lisbon smell like? This was the question that lead to dozens of giant noses being placed in Chiado and Príncipe Real.

When pressed, they let out some of the city's most characteristic smells. Papo seco (a type of bread), laundry smell , river or roasted chestnuts, were just four of the odors that made Lisbon feel different to those who joined this sensorial experience.

And they died happily ever after

Júlio de Matos

The show took place at Hospital Júlio de Matos, and was a crossover between the love tragedy of Pedro and Inês de Castro and the invention of lobotomy by Egas Moniz. The characters moved without words and lived the scenes through dramatic and bodily expression. In addition to the central narrative, there were secret rooms and special moments behind closed doors...

Júlio de Matos Hospital 1949. A tormented doctor, an ice pick in the wrong hands, a story of passion that ends in blood. "And They Died Happy Forever", an immersive show in a building of the Júlio de Matos Hospital. A live experience with 10 characters, in 27 rooms.

It was launched during LisbonWeek 2015 and was on the scene for 7 months, attracting more than 10,000 visitors.

LX Factory - 2012-2020

Ephemeral Museum of Urban Art at LX Factory. A pop-up museum that pathed  a way of making art that was initially illegal and ended up – as part of the city and the lives of those who inhabit it – claiming a new function for public space. The street art epic went on for two months, through a hundred works by pioneering artists, national and international, such as Banksy, Invader, André Saraiva, Os Gêmeos, Felipe Pantone, Vhils, Futura 2000, Finok, Jason Revok and Bordalo II, in a building that would be destroyed at the end of the exhibition.
