VILLAGE UNDERGROUND is a space for creativity and culture in Alcântara. We believe in equality, diversity, sustainability and the knowledge to think, act and communicate in a creative way. We do this through programs where we bring together creators, artists and the community around contemporary cultural and socio-economic issues. VULX is a venue for music, theatre, cinema, exhibitions, conferences and in a transdisciplinary format.
A wall is torn down,
A new world rises.
We peek through the other side,
The mind unsettles.
The first step to break down the barrier.
The fun just got better.
The heart races in a childlike tachycardia of
adventure, anxiety, adrenaline. Something new.
Atop the wall, fantasies like glass shards
nosediving straight to the heart.
It all starts with a jolt.
A blow to the table,
A wall in revolt.
A monument to freedom.
A new act begins.
We land on fertile yet unknown territory.
Our head expands.
Both sides come together.
Emotional and rational embrace in a tango.
Fusions, cultures, and tones rumble.
Sounds merge in a thunder.
A stream of air instigates a chaos
of letters sorted into a manifest of release.
The most beautiful strophe.
The most powerful rhyme.
In a new town where culture is rising to its prime.
Bring down the walls, destroy the cages.
No more “no”, fear or inhibition.
For the bus ever fostering creation.
