Village Underground Lisbon (VULX) is a dreamland of creativity, art and culture in Alcântara, Lisbon.
An open wall to a new artistic and cultural movement.
We believe in equality, diversity, sustainability and the knowledge to think, act and communicate in a creative way.
We bring together creators, artists and the community around cultural and socio-economic issues, with special focus on street culture – music, street art and skate.
VULX is a venue for music, theatre, cinema, conferences and exhibitions, a little bit of everything happens here.
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.
