A 20-year friendship and musical relationship brings João Carlos Pacheco and João Dias to the stage of the Gare du Nord under the name PACED. The evening focuses entirely on the work of the Portuguese composer Igor C. Silva. Together with him, the two performers reconstruct his works in a demanding creative process, offering a monographic perspective on his oeuvre.

Afterwards, there will be a talk with the musicians in the bar about their work and the music scene in Portugal. There will also be a sound station with CDs and records and everyone can also look forward to a small glass of port.
