We want Barcelona to StreetView

Ever since at the beginning of June they announced that Google was taking photographies from Barcelona, we are hoping that the service  shows them to StreetView.
But it seems that still we will have to wait for a little more, because if we go to Google map, nearest Barcelona in Street View, it is in France, in the Tour of France.
When Barcelona?

When Barcelona?

In Barcelona: Estriptis

Estriptis is one of the most suggestive productions of the last edition of High Season and arrives now at the Borràs Theater as a sample on the utility of the body like linguistic vehicle
The ” bailaor” international of Granada, Rafael Amargo, Sol Picó, the cinema director Jaime Chávarri, the director of the Fura dels Baus Carlus Padrissa, and theater directors Mario Gas and Andres Lima offer their personal vision of ‘ striptease’ in the Estriptis spectacle, in the Teatre Borràs of Barcelona.
In this proposal, two men and one woman undress to the rate of the music of Mozart. The work puts in scene of unitary form the proposals of six of the most excellent authors of the scene of the dance, the theater, the cinema and the multidisciplinary scene.
With a beginning in which Rafael Amargo undresses the feet of his dancers, followed of the fragment of the trainer of horses and of a dancing that rises literally by the walls, the spectacle culminates with one more a daily vision of “estriptis”.

Until 20/7, in Teatre Borràs, Pl Urquinaona, 9, Barcelona.
