Veranos de la Villa - July full of plans

Madrid in summer does not rest, from outdoor events, concerts and even parties, the city is full of enthusiasm and summer joy. Do not miss the events that will be held in the next two weeks!

If you are looking for undefined art, María Jerez might be your new muse. The Madrileña’n artist is known for her art that eludes common recognition—for example, one of her works depicts a scarf blowing over a highway, but the way it is flying makes it appear as a cloud of black smoke. Her work focuses on the incapacity to name what you see, and her exhibit is absolutely worth a visit. She will also be accompanied by Lanoche, an experimental electronic music group. Tickets are free to see her work in the Madrid’s Matadero at 21:30.

This piece, created by Pablo Larraín and Roberto Farías, tells us the story of a young man growing up in the streets of Santiago de Chile. Each day, he sells cheap items on the street in order to make enough money to survive, but that is not all that life has in store for him. The show begins at 21:00 in the Cineteca-Matadero Madrid and is presented in a monolog format that is sure to captivate you. Join us for this intense societal analysis as we delve into themes of abuse, exclusion, resistance, and what it is to be human.

Tribute to Gloria Fuertes                                                                              Fridat, July 28th

A day like today, a hundred years ago, on July 28, 1917 Gloria Fuertes was born in the Madrid neighborhood of Lavapiés, where she lived her childhood and adolescence. This neighborhood girl, of humble origin, would become a heterodox and unclassifiable poet whose work has become part of popular culture. 
Her poems have moved and made children and adults smile with a script full of sensitivity and full of humanity. This will take place in Lavapiés Neighborhood at 20:30 and it has free entrance.
