  • Umbral – 13 interventions in the metroUmbral reflects on the phenomenon of migration as a characteristic of any contemporary or future society. It looks at its different realities through the gaze of ten artists and three group projects located in the metro. It emphasises the need to create structures for thinking about and integrating the flow of people that have to leave their homes and emigrate to other latitudes. A decision which, in some cases, is a matter of survival. We offer a place for reflection and for understanding the inequality suffered by millions of people. Umbral aims to inform the general public about a shared problem, and encourage them to assume their responsibility, whatever their origins, culture, age or gender. Until the 6th of February 2019. More info and locations here.

  • Opus (Leon and Wolf Dance Company):This piece for four performers and four musicians, directed by Greek choreographer Christos Papadopoulos, is based on the study of the strict structure and complexity of classical music composition. The main rules of instrumental music are applied in a different art form: dance. The body becomes a visual version of the musical instrument and the score becomes the choreography itself. Each body in the scene draws, with movement, the rhythm or melodic lines of each instrument; sometimes it focuses on a single musical instrument and sometimes on two, directing the spectator’s attention to the wonderful architecture of classical music and its harmonic logic. The result is a performance of great sobriety and beauty, an intelligent attempt to discover our automatic physical response to musical impulses. Tonight at 20:30 at Hiroshima, C/ Vilà i Vilà, 67, metro Parel•lel (L2 y L3).

  • When I’m big I want to be a photographer (photo expo): When I am big I want to be a photographer is Murat’s dream, an 8 year old boy, of Syrian origin and who has spent half a lifetime in a refugee camp in Iraq.

The workshops were held in September 2018 in two refugee camps near the city of Erbil (Iraq).

  • Sol Felpeto exhibits “Picasso”: Minou was a French stray cat that Picasso adopted during a period of his very “blue” life in which he was depressed and ruined. The story tells that the painter had to return the cat to the street since he could not feed him. Minou found himself once again wandering around Montmartre and had the fortune to find a sausage. Without hesitation, he returned to his old master’s house to share the meal with him. This is how Sol Felpeto decides to recreate the most famous works of Picasso by reinterpreting the characters with his cat, Minou, returning the protagonism that has never been recognised, the tender bond that united the artist and the animal. Today is the opening, confirm attendance by writing an email to solfelpetopress@gmail.com.

So when the students came out of class we surprised them with this good food and some cold sweet wine “Moscatel” . Some of them just couldn’t stop eating chestnuts 🙂

We all enjoyed it very much!!! Wish we could celebrate this Catalan tradition every week.

Like every Friday we also had to say goodbye to students who finished their course. They are posing at the entrance of the school with her well earned certificates.
