Cultural program


Nídia recalls the moment when
she was five years old and pictured
herself as an adult still living
on her grandfather’s hill together
with her domestic animals. She was
attracted by the simplicity of the
countryside, the strenght of the sea
and the need to enjoy her friends’
company in a special place. Now
she lives on the farmhouse inherited
from her grandfather, where
words are scarce, but the energy
is vivid and strong. We walk together
with her horses, domestic
boars and dogs until we reach the
sea. On our way back, we dine and
dance tango.

A tour through the life of Nídia, a horse rider and animal keeper who lives in a rural house in the forgotten Algarve near Vila do Bispo. Nídia tells the story of her grandparents who have always lived in a communion between sea, land and tremendous hard work. We walk towards the sea accompanied by a special Noah’s Ark which is composed by Nídia’s best friends: domestic boars and their piglets,
mares, donkeys, dogs, cats and geese. As
the sun sets behind the hill and the animals
prepare for the evening, we dine seafood with corn and move on to dance tango together with people from the neighbouring farms. On the dancefloor with a sight over the pond build by Nídia’s grandfather, she teaches anyone who wishes to dance the steps of her very personal Algarvian tango.
