The kids are already enjoying the school holidays and, in parallel, the parents are preparing plans for these next few weeks with the intention that they are not hooked on TV or the console all day.
To help them out, CaixaForum has prepared a series of family activities that will take place during these Christmas holidays, including original shows, age-appropriate movies and children’s workshops.
The acts begin today with a very original montage, ideal for those who want to laugh while listening to classical music. This is Desconcerto , a very fun project by the Orquestra de Cambra de l’Empordà under the direction of Jordi Purtí.
The musicians go on stage but the director does not appear so they take the opportunity to improvise on famous themes, they will confront him over the type of repertoire and there will be fights between virtuosos.
Vivaldi’s Four Seasons will become a musical chase, and neither William Tell’s overture or Mozart’s Rondo alla Turca will be safe. Everything is possible. Gestural and physical humor to fit your jokes with a smile.A disconcerting concert that can be seen on different dates and times until December 31.
Another very interesting proposal is Kl’aa, la teva cançó (January 4 and 5, at 12 noon) by Inspira Teatre. Kl’aa means ‘to sing’ in the Hadza language, originally from Tanzania and considered the most primitive language known.
It is a musical journey through the discovery of the world, a visual and sound experience that claims the voice as the foundation of human presence and as a vehicle of identity. An opportunity for children to discover new places, new adventures and the way to choose their path and their song.
A show that plays with rhythm, music, theater and dance , with a fresh and close language for all audiences and that fuses the different artistic disciplines.
They say that if you activate this newsletter in front of a mirror at midnight, Pocholo appears and takes you to a party. Ana Sánchez reveals to you every week the most original plans in Barcelona.
The educational section on Petits cinèfils films is dedicated to the French director, writer and animator Michel Ocelot. All sessions have an educator who present the film to provide the basic keys, necessary to interpret and enjoy it. Attendees will also have a room sheet with information and complementary educational resources.
On Saturday, January 2, at 11:30 a.m., Dilili a Paris will be screened , an animated female tale full of color. The protagonist is Dilili, a young woman who comes to France from New Caledonia. With the help of a delivery friend, he will investigate a series of mysterious kidnappings of girls in Belle Époque Paris.
During his investigations, he will come across various characters who will give him clues. It is visually stunning and stands out for its attractive recreation of the era that led to it winning the César (the French equivalent of the Goya) in the category of best animated film.
The other option is to sign up for the What Plots? , free and designed for boys and girls from 6 years old. In it, kids will discover that the frames, monochromatic patterns of repeating shapes, are neither boring nor monotonous.
Using a single color and combining lines and shapes, they will experiment with the multiple expressive possibilities of lines: they can be lengthened, undulated, separated, joined or converted into points to create contrasts and sensations of volume. It takes place on different days and at different times from today until January 5.
Finally, you can take advantage of the visit to take a tour of its exhibitions , also highly recommended. Currently you can see Vampires, the evolution of the myth , about the relationship between this enigmatic character and the cinema.
The exhibition allows one to enter his world and learn about its different facets through various artistic disciplines. Art and myth: the gods of the Prado focuses on the historical and artistic evolution of classical mythology through a collection of works in this museum.
Finally, So lazy, praise of the splurgeproposes an ironic approach to consumption and offers a narrative journey that goes from hyperactivity to contemplation. Plenty of options to shake off laziness and have fun with entertaining and educational proposals.
