EXPOSITION. The evolution of Comics in Spain
Some of the copies that are in the exhibition ‘The evolution of the Comic in Spain’.CC FASHION SHOPPING
In this exhibition at the Moda Shopping Mall you can see a selection of about 250 pieces that brings the different contents of the comic to all audiences: adventure, youth, superheroes, adult or horror, among others. It is a journey through the most outstanding stages of this cultural form that in Spain acquired its own identity. Within this history, the TBO occupies a preferential place in the exhibition since the Catalan magazine ended up giving the genre its name in the country. For the organizers, the main objective of the exhibition is to vindicate the popular culture role of comics and highlight their sociological importance. At the very least, however, the older ones will enjoy watching the comics they read as children and the younger ones will see that not everything is manga.
When: until May 2. Hours: from 10:00 to 21:00. Where: CC Moda Shopping, (Avda General Perón 38-40). Price: Free.
THEATER. Alaejos; few and far
What do you know about your grandparents when they were young? Four actors set themselves the challenge of bringing to the stage the youth stories of their grandparents and great-grandparents in an attempt to understand their lives, their fears and decisions. A story that faces oblivion and the passage of time to remove from anonymity these stories that are lost in the sea of History. But the challenge seems impossible: forgetfulness, lack of information, crossed memories, different versions … The fragmentation of memory and its mechanisms begin to infiltrate the story and the characters of the memory take the stage. How many memories make up History?
When: Saturday, April 17. Hours: 17.00. Where: Teatro del Barrio (C / Zurita, 20). Price: Online and advance sale, 14 euros; at the box office, the day of the performance, 16 euros.

CHILDISH. Around the exhibitions. Generation 2021
Installation of Lucía Bayón in Generation 2021THE HOUSE ON
This children’s workshop (from 6 to 9 years old) deals with creation from one of the most necessary and essential elements for life: water. It is present in the works of Lucía Bayón and Isabel Marcos, two of the winning artists of Generation 2021. After visiting the works of the artists, and taking as a common thread the history of the water cycle from when it evaporates in the oceans until it reaches the buildings through the taps, the workshop analyzes with the participants where the water goes once it is undone. It seeks to bring art and its production closer to the younger public, inviting them to discover different artistic techniques and processes, and fostering their empathy and an open and critical attitude towards the unknown. In addition, it highlights the creative sense of the human being and his capacity for expression.
When: Saturday, April 17. Hours: 11 a.m. to 1 p.m. Where: La Casa Encendida (Ronda de Valencia, 2) Price: 3 euros.
