With many of our places still in development, we’re currently running a reduced program that will grow over the coming years. From film screenings and live musical performances to workshops, talks and exhibitions, we will curate a year-round cultural program devoted to the cultivation of arts, crops and inner gardens. To stay up to date on new additions to the calendar, sign up for our newsletter here.
Casa Noble kicks off its salon series with a multidisciplinary gathering around food, performance and ideas. Our year-round program of thematically curated cultural salons features poetry readings and intimate live musical performances accompanied by guided discussions on diverse topics, from sustainable urban development to Portuguese artistic traditions to social topics of import to the community.
New Year’s Happening
19:00 - 03:00
An immersive, multi-sensorial night of music, performance, food and celebration over three floors and two stages takes us on a prismatic, ecstatic journey into 2022. The main festive hub is the garden, where live food installations featuring tacos and Yucatán-style barbecued pork, aka cochinita pibil, will run from 7 to 11pm with an open bar and unforgettable musical lineup.
As you move upstairs, the vibe gets freakier and more psychedelic with velvet-draped textural decor and a bohemian rooftop lineup including live sets by Latin fusion duo Leclé, Mexico City-born electronic beatmaker Manuscula and Brazilian duo Kurup & Jaçira, whose influences span “digital macumba, afro grooves, deep Latin folk and experimental circus vibes.”
18:00 - 00:30
For Nochebuena at the Treehouse, you are invited for a festive family-style dinner in the garden and an evening of music. Our chef will be serving up regional culinary explorations, followed by music by Treehouse resident Jaime Fiorito and a live set by J. Pool.
Cena de Navidad
18:00 - 00:30
A sit-down multi-course Christmas feast in the garden samples traditional culinary takes from Oaxaca, Mexico City and the Yucatán. After dinner, folkloric musical performance leads us into the night with a sonic journey through tropical Christmas moods, from the Afro-Peruvian-inflected instrumental Mexican sounds of Los Jarochos to the Latin fusion stylings of Argentinian Tulum local Aur Kan.
Primary Paper Issue 5 Launch
19:00 - 21:00
Join us at our Berlin bakery Sofi for wine and focaccia as we launch the latest issue of Primary Paper, which explores the topic of faith through contemporary photography.
Día de los Muertos
18:00 - 01:00
Join us as we open our doors for an intimate rooftop concert and a Mexican-Caribbean offering rooted in the culinary traditions of Día de los Muertos. Rooted in the pre-Hispanic traditions of Mexico, the Day of the Dead, or Día de los Muertos, is a day when the portal opens between the living and the dead, allowing the souls of the departed to rejoin their loved ones for a day of ceremony, remembrance and celebration—a vision of an accessible spiritual dimension shared by many cultures across the globe.
Jason Kriegler Exhibition
Tulum Treehouse welcomes our new exhibiting artist, Merida-based textile painter Jason Kriegler. Drawing influence from traditional textile design, Jason incorporates abstraction to create contemporary works that blur the lines between painting and textile art. His pared-down paper embroidery paintings suggest organic, biological forms but can also be experienced purely as abstracted combinations of shapes, line and texture.
Despite their simplicity, they have a captivating quality that reveals the complexity of hand embroidering onto paper, enlivened by a sense of depth that only seems to grow with continued examination. The exhibition runs for six months.
Tomato Harvest & Farm Picnic
To mark the tomato harvest, we’re hosting a picnic at the Meco Beach farm, accompanied by live music and discussion. The gathering kicks off a rotating program of community-supported farming, arts and knowledge exchange that aims to restore conscious appreciation for the natural world, creating a model for a regenerative society.
We welcome the community for a day of discovery under the guidance of master farmer Andy Szymanowicz, an expert in biodynamic agriculture and lacto-fermentation. With the help of his team of nature-loving farmers, Andy will guide us through La Granja’s garden plots, sharing recent developments, discoveries and the season’s most promising crops.
Learn how composting, mulching and a high-tech, sustainable approach to water management have returned vital nutrients to the farm, how eating produce from small farms can benefit your mind and body and how you can bring all of these learnings into your own life, home and personal garden plot. Get involved in a project aimed at reactivating abandoned agricultural lands across the island.
Join us for our first Farmer’s Market at Casa Noble in Lisbon, where we will offer produce and artisanal items from small farms in the region, including the first harvest of our own 82-hectare former herdade on Portugal’s Arrábida Coast that we are transforming into a biodynamic farmstead for year-round living and hospitality. Architects from the herdade project will be on hand at the Farmer’s Market, sharing drawings and plans for what’s to come
Conversation with a View hosted by Daniel Pinchbeck
From the jungle-facing roof terrace of the Treehouse, we continue our conversation series hosted by acclaimed writer Daniel Pinchbeck on the new regenerative paradigm and the impact of rapid development on the indigenous communities and natural ecosystems of Tulum and other developing destinations.
Daniel has written extensively about ecology, shamanism, psychedelics and indigenous prophecy in his books, which include Breaking Open the Head: A Psychedelic Journey into the Heart of Contemporary Shamanism, 2012: The Return of Quetzalcoatl, Notes from the Edge Times and most recently, How Soon is Now? The dialogue, in which we will also discuss actionable steps we can take individually and as a community to offset the harmful effects of rapid development, will be followed by a live performance.
A sensorial week of music and scent celebrates our collaboration with Xinú, a Mexico City perfumery founded by Ignacio Cadena, Verónica Peña and influential designer Héctor Esrawe, who has created a site-specific sensorial installation bridging the entrance of Tulum Treehouse to the front garden and the new boutique, Xinú’s fourth site in Mexico.
Drawing inspiration from the aromatic biodiversity of the Americas, Xinú is curating botanicals across Tulum Treehouse, from unique food and drink menus to skincare and bathing products. We will celebrate this collaboration with a night of music from Hernan Suarez and Avi Schneider, followed by our resident Jaime Fiorito.
Gather in the Treehouse kitchen to uncover Mayan cooking techniques. Learn to grind corn, the heart and soul of Mexican food culture, ith a stone mill and prepare it using techniques going back to pre-Hispanic times.
Mayan Clay with Emilio Espadas
16:00 - 19:00
Emilio Espadas of Uayma, a member of one of the last Mayan potter families in the Yucatán, shares his process as we continue our discourse on the indigenous craft and artisanal traditions of the Yucatán.
Uxii in Residence
Tulum Treehouse artist-in-residence Uxii is a self-taught ceramicist living in Mérida. Her ceramic work explores the composition, use and origin of prehispanic Mayan clay vessels. We invite our residents to investigate new cultural dialogues and possibilities for traditional knowledge preservation.
