Schedule for the weekend of 30 June: 8 highly recommended cultural plans

This is the only weekend in which you will have the chance to watch ‘Letter to a man’ at Teatre Nacional de Catalunya, until Sunday 2nd July with Director Robert Wilson and the legendary ballet dancer Mikhail Baryshnikov. It is a show which is based on the famous diaries of Vàtslav Nijinski, published in 1936, which focus on the fragmented mind of this great dance artist as he went crazy, losing touch with reality. As in all of Wilson’s works, movement, text, light, scenography and music all play an equal role.

Another cultural proposal for this weekend is to visit the FADfest, exhibitions, the Art and Design Festival in Barcelona, which showcases the best proposals in architecture, interior design, graphic design, publicity, industrial design, art and fashion.

Tomorrow, Saturday, the summer festival ‘Geografía’ at the Auditorio de la Diputación de Alicante (ADDA), kicks off. It is a journey through the world via the best international jazz, flamenco, classic and world music artists. Tomorrow, Saturday 1st July, Xarxa Theatre will light up the esplanade of ADDA, and on Sunday 2nd July Michael Nyman will be performing. He is one of the most innovative and acclaimed British composers for his operas, string quartets, soundtracks and orchestral concerts.
