Amosse Mucavele is to be guest author representing Mozambique at a series of literary events in Portugal in the second half of May.
The Mozambican writer starts his tour with the 4th edition of the Gardunha Literary Festival in Fundão from May 16 to 21. Writers from Portugal, Mozambique, Angola, Spain and Brazil will participate, the main theme being “The Journey”, and where geographical, imaginary and poetic frontiers will be debated.
The promotion of Iberian and international relations and the meeting of established and younger writers are also distinguishing marks of the festival. Thirty writers are participating, among them Luandino Vieira (Camões Prize 2006), Lopito Feijó, Amosse Mucavele, João de Melo, Helder Macedo, Afonso Cruz, Sérgio Godinho, among many others. In addition to the lectures and exhibitons, fado singer Cristina Branco and the Mário Laginha Trio will interpret the music of Brazillian composer and singer Chico Buarque.
On May 23, Mucavele will be at the New University of Lisbon for a session on new Mozambican poetry coordinated by Professor Ana Maria Martinho. The next day he will premiere his latest work, Geografia do Olhar, (The Geography of Sight) at Lisbon’s Teatro A Barraca. The book, edited by Cavalo do Mar, will be presented by Ana Paula Tavares and Filinto Elísio.
Finally, on May 26 and 27, Mucavele participates in the Lusophone Writers’ Meeting in Odivelas, promoted in the context of the 6th Biennial of Lusophone Cultures. This forum brings together writers such as Ondjaki (Angola), Germano Almeida (Cape Verde) and João Tordo (Portugal).
Amosse Mucavele’s participation in this series of events is supported by the Camões Portuguese Cultural Centre in Maputo and publisher Cavalo do Mar.Source: Centro Cultural Portugues
