Magic and flamenco returns, supporting the small concert halls and balconies turned into boxes

Nothing is impossible - Mago Pop

A show full of emotion, fun and surprises, which takes place with great sensitivity and sense of rhythm. Antonio Díaz, The Mago Pop, again demonstrates that when he is on stage, nothing is impossible. After taking his magic to more than 150 countries with his programs on the DMAX channel, he became the highest grossing illusionist in Europe. Even Stephen Hawking himself was impressed with one of his games. "I don't understand how he can do what he does," he said.

Cruïlla XXS: less is more

This year's Summer Cruïlla Festival could not be held, but the organizers have not limited themselves to preparing for the 2021 edition, but have worked hard to give us a Cruïlla this year. Another Cruïlla, adapted to the circumstances. They have called it Cruïlla XXS, and it is based on the philosophy less is more, although it seems contradictory: less poster, more artists; fewer people, closer; fewer stages, more spaces; fewer hours, more days.

Grec Festival of Barcelona

El Grec de Barcelona is a festival of theater, dance, music, circus and cinema, with a long tradition (this year marks the 44th edition). It is not only the main cultural attraction of the Barcelona summer, but also a reference in the European calendar of festivalsThis year's Grec has been reinvented to face an edition that is being held in difficult conditions. Local creation will be the protagonist, although they will not lose sight of international talent. In addition, they have opened the door to new stage formats and new ways of reaching the public, and there will be a single price for all shows. Everything will be carried out following strict security measures that will be constantly audited. This year's opening will be a tribute to health and other workers in essential areas who have fought on the front line in the difficult moments of the pandemic.

Festival Primera Persona

The Primera Persona festival receives that name because it brings together creators from different artistic disciplines who base their work on their own life experience. There are two days of live autobiography: tragicomic monologues, pop music, theater and narrative.

While we are in standby mode, they have prepared an appetizer of their life stories, which they will broadcast online: a First Person Indoors. In this special edition they will have two exceptional guests: the New Yorker journalist Jia Tolentino and the writer and novelist Rachel Cusk.
