The ‘Amazing Grace’ show in A Coruña and the historical avant

We start the week before the big days of Christmas with a cultural agenda that still has events that will allow us to escape a bit from the festive reality that surrounds us. Those who want more wood and like to attend a Christmas-scented show will also have their chance, especially with the performances of the Ukrainian and kyiv Ballets which, coincidentally, are scheduled on the same day and at almost the same time in Vigo and A coruña.

Luisa Castro ea poetry da beleza ea quincalla: “I always write in a foreign language, foreign”


For those who want to escape a little from the Christmas goodness there are options such as the show Amazing Gracewhich can be seen next Wednesday in A Coruña, the Sés concert in Santiago this Saturday or the heavy of the Holy Land this Friday also in Compostela. An interactive exhibition opens in Vigo that offers the viewer an immersion in the world of the 20th century avant-garde. Pontevedra lives the last days of its Novos Cinemas festival and in the Cidade da Cultura de Santiago the exhibition dedicated to Laxeiro is still open (only until this Sunday). There is no time to get bored, if the racking of gifts and the preparation of Christmas dinners leave room.
