Conversations about the future behind closed doors
A table is set for a meal, with new etiquette rules. 6 places are laid out, but only 3 are taken - two guests, one host. The lunch is served and a conversation about the future begins.
Canal180 joins forces with S.P.O.T. to create an experience. In closed spaces of the city of Porto, we challenged people who although available cannot do their jobs in the same way. These places are occupied, a chef is invited to cook a meal, artists to bring light to the space, and finally, photographers and videographers capture the moment.
In each of the 4 episodes of And After Tomorrow?, a new topic is discussed. Music, cultural programming and the behind the scenes of live shows, and the challenges they entail in the near future, are reflected upon.
EP. 2 — A Lunch at Coliseu Porto Ageas
The second conversation takes centre stage at Coliseu do Porto Ageas. João Carvalho, from Ritmos, António Guimarães (“Becas”), from Passos Manuel are hosted by Mónica Guerreiro, from Coliseu Porto Ageas, to discuss the future of cultural programming and the cancellation of events in a fittingly empty room.
Talking about the process of cancelling Vodafone Paredes de Coura, João Carvalho can’t remember the last time he spent a Summer without a festival. Discussing the repercussions of the cancellations, António Guimarães and Mónica Guerreiro speak of their plans to reopen Passos Manuel and Coliseu Porto Ageas, respectively, considering the challenges of reprogramming cancelled acts when “one of the concerns of programmers in general, is to program upon the spirit of time. In what way we can reflect what we're living.” — Mónica Guerreiro

It was one of the few good things of this pandemic. It brought people together and got them talking to each other.
— António Guimarães (“Becas”)
That'll be funny too. We will be more open to different kinds of shows. People that are used to only watching one kind of show will now feel the need to go see other forms of art.
— João Carvalho
EP.1 — A Lunch at Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis
The doors of Museu Nacional Soares dos Reis, under refurbishment since last Summer, opened for the 1st episode of And After Tomorrow?. During the conversation, José Costa Reis, wonders “When was the last time this room received a lunch?”. Probably two hundred years ago, back when Carrancas Palace (the late 18th century building now occupied by the museum) was not yet a museum, before 1833.
The first of these experiences brings together Capicua and Inês Nadais in a conversation hosted by José Costa Reis, part of the Museum’s team. Sharing a 3-plate meal cooked by the Chef Pedro Braga from Restaurante Mito, the participants discuss journalism in times of confinement and the future of the music industry who unable to do live concerts, often their main source of income, are rethinking ways of financial survival. Capicua worries that “The record lost its value and if concerts lose their value too there's nothing left for us to get paid artistically.”

In confinement it’s art people turn to. As Capicua points out “It's impossible to stay home for 2 or 3 months without music, movies, books, art. That's solitary confinement. And people realized that our work has value and it's a vital need, which is something people tend to forget.”. This becomes particularly important to note at a time when society has failed to protect its artists. As Inês Nadais points out “It's very clear that we have to change the law and develop a regime for intermittent and precarious workers.”.
Professionally, for a journalist, (..) These are romantic times, if I may say so, because it seems that our mission is very clear again. (…) Our website is always full of users, and suddenly it seems like it's more difficult yet clearer to know why we're working and to whom we're working for.
— Inês Nadais
For this first episode, it was up to the Canal180 team to capture the conversation. The styling was done by S.P.O.T. themselves, who have also co-produced this episode, and flower arrangements by Filipa Alves. Raio Verde were responsible for the photographic capture of the moment; their photographs that have been used both in this page and the video.
I was hoping that this quarantine would makes us stop, but it didn't. I felt there was this need of being hyper-productive. (…) Please, let's stop and think because there's no time. The time to think, the time for art, the time of the working groups, of public policy is incompatible with this hysteria. Our economic and social reality is the real emergency.
The next 2 episodes feature guests in live show technicians and catering. Among them are Hugo Costa (Roadies DC), Isabel Tavares (Comida de Rua) and Vasco Coelho Santos (Euskalduna). The team behind the cameras will also change from episode to episode. New stylists, florists, photographers and videographers are invited to participate in this experience. The doors of Plano B and Jardim Botânico will open, where guests will enjoy meals prepared by chefs Rui Paul and Camilo Jaña.
