Conteúdo principal

Espaço Alkantara is a heritage building located at 99 Calçada Marquês de Abrantes in the Santos neighbourhood in Lisbon. It has been our centre of operations since the city granted Alkantara the use of the building in 2007.

For any questions about Espaço Alkantara, please contact our producer Sinara Suzin (email).

Studio

Our studio (130m2) is located in a former industrial space with rough cement floors, high wooden ceilings, and three large doors leading to a large, outdoor patio. We have a modular dance floor (plywood and foam blocks) that can be installed to help level the floor and provide a more comfortable working space. The studio does not have a grid, but there are some fixed bars that can be used to hang lights.

Espaço Alkantara does not have permanent technical staff. The technical rider of the studio is available here.

Please note that in accordance with public health regulations, rehearsals in the studio are currently limited to six people.

A new studio at Espaço Alkantara

In 2018, we completed the first phase of a renovation project on the ground floor of Espaço Alkantara that included adding a bathroom and completing a partial demolition. The second phase of the renovation, which involves building a new studio space, is currently awaiting city approval.

Espaço Alkantara underwent a first renovation in 2008, designed by Voar Arquitetura (Jordi Fornells).
