> Session with a Portuguese Sign Language interpreter
Ecotemporaries is a reading community in green spaces in the city of Lisbon. Proposing connections between literature and green spaces, in each session a guest chooses a book whose theme or imagery he associates with that place.
In 2021, we continue this project that invites the occupation and discovery of the city’s green spaces, promoting their enjoyment, through the creation of an inclusive and accessible reading community.
This time, the session will be broadcast live, on the stage of the Jardim do Palácio Pimenta (Lisbon Museum) and, as usual, there will be interpretation in Portuguese Sign Language, making reading and dialogue about books and literature accessible.
Beatriz Batarda (1974) started attending the design course at IADE between 1992 and 1995. She made her debut in Portuguese cinema in 1986 in the film Tempos Difíceis, by João Botelho, followed by other participations in films by directors such as Manoel de Oliveira, José Álvaro de Morais, João Canijo, Margarida Cardoso, Marco Martins, Bille August, among others.
At the theater, she made her debut in 1994 in the play Conto de Inverno, staged by Luís Miguel Cintra. With a scholarship from the Portuguese Ministry of Culture, she studies at the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, where she lived between 1996 and 2004.
After her return to Portugal, she founded the Arena Ensemble in 2007, which she directs with Marco Martins. In 2012, she founded Casa Bernardo Sassetti, an association of friends that promotes the dissemination of the work of the musician and composer.
She has been teaching interpretation techniques since 2007 at various schools across the country.
