Auto-Radio Alkantara

AUTO-RÁDIO a ruminant space
Produced by Prado | co-produced by the Alkantara Festival

“Hi I am Irmã Lucia and I am listening to Rádio Ruminante!”

A mobile radio station reported exclusively on ART for 3 consecutive weeks during the 2010 edition of the Alkantara Festival. This was a space where spectator, listener and artist could meet in front of a real or virtual microphone to discover or reveal secrets, research and themes around each one of the performances on the festival’s programme.
Extended interviews with fetish artists, musical selections based on viewers requests or inspired by performances, exquisite corpses for radio, performance reviews and anti-reviews by experts from different backgrounds, viewer’s opinions, debates broadcast in LISTENERS BRAILLE, performances, and concerts. All of this on a radio station that was born and died in the most flamboyant way!
This radio station broadcast via the internet and is now available for download of sessions/programs or items that have since become historical documents in their own right.
Its anarchic form, without a programming grid, without the limitations of broadcasting schedules, or limits on the number of interviewers or presenters, allowed the Auto-Rádio to metamorphose constantly, merging with other events such as the Auto-Rádio Microphone at the Pavillion of Knowledge in Lisbon in 2010. A new version, the Mini Auto-Rádio will be launched in the near future for a younger audience.
