Dance-Theater Retazos company is on premier this weekend, and not one but two! The first one by the company director Isabel Bustos, and the second one by her son Miguel Azcue, director of the Swedish dance company Memory Wax.

In Music, well… maestro Chucho Valdes will have several concerts with very special guests. In Visual Arts, a new expo with Juan Padron pieces, extremely recommended.
In FAC a little bit of everything so you don’t get bored. In Cinema, more than 20 films produced by the Japanese animation study Ghibli. And for closure, some of the things you may find if you stop by Arte en La Rampa.
