The last four months of 2021 focus on programming “centered on intimacy”, addressing issues of current interpersonal relationships such as “acceptance and infidelity”, for a public and shared experience based on different artistic genres.
Among the 19 shows in question, by national and foreign artists, the municipality highlights the national premiere of the show “Orbita” on September 18, by the Spanish company Zen Del Sur. It is a “multidisciplinary show of contemporary music and circus, which suggests a dreamlike journey through the sea and through the art of the city of Cádiz”.

The month of October will be dedicated to three shows from the 44th edition of FIMUV – International Music Festival of Paços de Brandão, which focuses on classical music, but includes inclusions in other complementary artistic domains. The event will take the following shows to the Cineteatro António Lamoso: “Initiação”, by the Ballet Contemporâneo do Norte, which celebrates the company's 25th anniversary with the participation of the founding dancer Elisa Worm; “Drumming”, by the percussion group of the same name, accompanied by piano and electronic music; and the concert by Brazilian guitarist, singer, percussionist and composer Badi Assad, whose album “Wonderland” was selected among the top 100 by BBC London.
Also in October, the Fair's concert hall proposes two hip-hop sessions with the artist known as Mundo Segundo, named as a national reference in this style.
This is followed in November by “La Identidad de Versania”, a performance in which the Spanish company Lá Víspera crosses “dance, masks, puppets, physical theater and circus” for “a more intense reflection on intimacy, acceptance and mental health” about bipolar illness.
In the same month there will also be the concert “Symphonynics - O Gato das Botas”, with compositions by Vasco Negreiros and performed by the Youth Orchestra of Santa Maria da Feira, and also a concert by the Portuguese collective Saint Dominic's Gospel Choir, with the participation by local singer Rita Tavares. On November 20, the theatrical comedy “Intimidades”, by Companhia da Esquina, will be on stage, which will explore issues of love infidelity based on texts by American actor, screenwriter and director Woody Allen.
The room's program ends on December 5th with the show “Cor(p)o Metropolitano”, which, as part of the “Mater17” program of the Porto Metropolitan Area, presents itself as “an intermunicipal and polyphonic choir composed of 17 parts of a whole, capable of mapping the territory and its communities”.
For the last four months of 2021, Câmara da Feira also announces different free training initiatives for the Cineteatro António Lamoso, including three workshops as part of the annual program “Grau Zero da Companhia”, by Ballet Contemporâneo do Norte.
