DeVIR Meetings will bring a lot of dancing and a photography exhibition to Loulé, Faro and Lagos, in September, October and November.

The cultural association DeVIR/CAPa, which organizes the event, promised that it would hold the festival as soon as possible, after having been forced to postpone the meetings, due to the pandemic, and will comply.

From September onwards, part of the programming of this 6th edition of the DeVIR Meetings will be recovered, an initiative with the 365Algarve seal that should have taken place between March 13th and May 30th.

Even so, the public must count "on the constraints that the current situation imposes on us."

On the 9th and 11th of October, at 21 pm, the South African Gregory Magoma will present the show “Beautiful me”, at the Cineteatro Louletano and at the Centro Cultural de Lagos, respectively.
