The UMA Cultural Container proposes a trip around the world in April without leaving the Teatinos Campus

There will be sessions every Tuesday, Wednesday and Thursday, as well as extra courses and workshops


The Cultural Container of the University of Malaga (UMA) has reserved the month of April to travel the world in a metaphorical way with culture as a means of transportation, through a program full of international artists and shows that invite you to explore, discover and to reflect across different disciplines.

Thus, the performances begin this Wednesday with Emilo Manzano, who puts his body in ‘Proyecto pueblo: Pubertad’ as a vehicle towards a journey through roots and folklore after the Easter holidays. Living arts is repeated the following Wednesday, the 19th, with ‘We were waiting for you’, a show that reflects on ideologies around spirituality and groups with sectarian ideas and concepts.

One of the activities organized by UMAsaludable closes the performances of the month. ‘I spend the day dancing’ is an event created by Coletivo Danza in Malaga, a group of dancers from all over the world settled in our city, presenting this dance show energized by DJ aka TheRealDeaf, as detailed in a release.

For its part, music could not be missing on Thursdays in April at the Container either. Thus, the sounds of India, Ireland and China come together in Arzan’s melodies in an instrumental concert on Thursday, April 13. On the other hand, two Argentines, an Englishman and a man from Malaga form Polarnova, an alternative rock group that will present their new album a week later, on the 20th, on the stage of the cultural space.

Also part of the activities proposed by UMAsaludable, comes Silent Party, a musical session created by the producer Broken Lip and the multidisciplinary artist Mad Juan in which attendees will dance around the university area to the rhythm of a session that they can listen to through your headphones.

Tickets are on sale at a single price of three euros and can be purchased in advance on the Wegow platform, or on the day of the event at the Cultural Container box office half an hour before the start, if tickets are available. The shows will start at 8:00 p.m., with exceptions if any.

For his part, Eduardo Sierra, professor of Educational Theory at the University of Malaga, moderates the film sessions in April with a selection of feature films focused on the relationship between teachers and students.

The inspiring and emotional ‘Dead Poets Club’ opened the screenings on April 11, followed by the German film ‘The Wave’, on the 12th. The cycle will end on Tuesday, April 25 with ‘The Lives of Grace’ starring by Oscar winner Brie Larson. All screenings will be accompanied by a discussion with invited experts on the subject matter. The sessions will begin at 6:00 p.m. with free admission until full capacity is reached.


Meanwhile, the exhibition halls of the Vice President for Culture continue with the exhibitions inaugurated during the month of March. ‘Of the rose and the thorns. Ángeles Sioli’ can be visited until May 10 in the Rectorate building, with guided tours on Thursdays at 7:00 p.m. and Saturdays at 12:30 p.m.

In Espacio Cero ‘Tits: insolent and insubmissive’ by Pepa Cano is installed until May 4. This exhibition offers a free collage workshop given by the artist herself on April 18.

In addition, after the success of its first edition, Be Comics & Video Games returns together with the Fancine festival and the UMA Chair of Video Games, Gamification and Serious Games at the facilities of the Cultural Container.

From April 14 to June 16, this course will be held for lovers of video games, comics and animation. In addition, UMA students will be able to obtain an ECTS credit. Registration is free and will feature national and international speakers from the disciplines.

And on Tuesday, April 25, from 11:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m., the free Laughter Therapy workshop given by graphic humorist Omar Janaan will open the activities around UMAsaludable in the Cultural Container.
