Three years ago, in 2018, to celebrate its 20 years, the creators of this revivalist show presented, first in Lisbon and then in Macau, a special edition of the Sunday Show, a shared experience between artists, the public, and 10 Marias. The unexpected success of the event and the public’s encouragement was crucial for the association to think about a new project to present this year. This time the stage, where several performing arts come together, is over the river and has the city as the backdrop.
The show follows the concept started in 2002, in Bairro Alto, Lisbon, where several talents imagined scenes and carried them out. At that time, the stage was commanded by legendary masters of ceremony Madunna and La Monique, who weren’t merely announcing other artists, but printing their own rhythm and making magic in an enchanted world of fantasy, sparkles, and art. Burlesque, satire, or simply absurdity were dissected by artists and the public. Love Boat will be no different but it will make a difference.
When: Saturday, 9:00pm, June 5, 2021 (the journey lasts about three hours)
Where: Ponte Cais 14, Rua Das Lorchas, Edf. Yuet Tung, Macau

Created by award-winning movie director Tracy Choi and cinematographer Simmy Cheong, the exhibition showcases a short film that is compiled by a unique set of narrative still images, uncovering the essence of a story in a different form.
The exhibition unveils the tacit understanding between Tracy and Simmy, who have been working together for more than ten years, and sometimes this makes their ideas too consistent. Through this short film production, they hope to return to the original point to tell a simple story with still images, so as to experiment together, return to the origin and regain their original intentions.
