  • Crossdressers (photo expo): A photo exhibition by Jose Navarrete, student of the Photoreporting course 2017/18. Crossdressers is a fetishist term poorly defined as transvestism, associating those who practice it, with homosexuality or transgender. Nothing further from that, crossdressing is a behaviour, practiced mainly by men, who are in a continuous transition between masculinity and femininity. Crossdressers is a photo-report that dives into a hidden world and double lives. It does not pretend to create a gender consciousness, nor make a defence of the crossdressing movement. However, it seeks to place the viewer in that moment in which the crossdressers come to light, when they pass through the nights of Barcelona and enter the premises to interact with each other. Until February 4th from monday to friday from 09:00 to 21:00 at Grisart Méndez Núñez 14, metro Urquinaona (L1 and L4) and Arc de Triomf (L1).

  • Visit Fundació Joan Miró: Joan Miró is one of the most important artists of the twentieth century. His simple forms and primary colours forged a highly personal artistic universe.

Open today from 10:00 to 18:00. €12 for the general admission Joan Miró collection + temporary exhibition. Fundació Joan Miró, Parc de Montjuïc, metro Paral•lel (L3).

  • Am I Bruce Lee (teatre): Did you know that Bruce Lee was a cha-cha champion? This is how Junyi Sun begins to describe his first solo project, which is born from his curiosity about the phenomenon that represented this popular character in the 70s. Bruce Lee was a short man and a martial arts practitioner (not very popular in his time). How can a man so “small” through something as “small” as punches and kicks become a consumer good so widespread? For many, Bruce Lee is a full-fledged superhero. The points of union and parallelism between the artists (origin, career, personal process …) and the search of Sun (and of all of us) of ideals, objectives, desires … or superheroes, will define his work. A 40 minutes performance in Spanish and English today at 20:30 at Hiroshima, C/ Vilà i Vilà, 67, metro Parel•lel (L2 y L3). Get your ticket in advance (€8).

Sunday, 27th January

  • What’s the story? Morning glory: During four winter Sunday mornings, Sala Apolo hosts a cycle of classical music where exquisite artists are scheduled to bring this exclusive dye style to the general public. It is done in an unconventional way: without prejudices or condescensions, cutting in solemnity and bringing it closer to the culture of the 21st century. This morning we will hear works written originally for trumpet by composers like Hindemith, whose music was considered degenerated by the Nazis. Through colossal pieces written between the XX and XXI centuries, the trumpeter Mireia Farrés will present us the infinite possibilities of the instrument. A sonorous immensity. Today at 11:00 at Sala Apolo, c/ Nou de la Rambla 113, metro Paral.lel (L2, L3). Get your tickets in advance (€14).
