The Palau Robert of Barcelona
presents the exhibition “Dalí de Cadaqués per Robert Descharnes”
in the space “The display cabinet of photographer” , until 28 of September
The exhibition shows some thirty of unusual images that they show the relation of the painter with the people of his immediate surroundings in his favourite scenes: Cadaqués and the region of the Empordà. Also an audio-visual assembly with all the 177 photographies appears that compose the collection.
As date, we must say that the relation of French photographer Descharnes with Dalí and Gala, began the winter of 1950 in Cadaqués. Since 1955 the photographer made long stays in this locality, which allowed him to accumulate an authentic photographic and filmed chronicle of the artist.
El Palau Robert is at Pg Gràcia, 107
, and you can visit it from 10:00 h until 19:00 h (except Sundays, 10:00 to 14.30 hs).

Barcelona Gandules 08
What a interesting proposal for the summer in Barcelona! I tell you, today I listened in the radio3 a precious interview, to one of the people who organize Gandules ‘ 08.
The proposal anticipates the projection of films all the Tuesdays, Wednesday and Thursday of August. And as we said, it is free, but the capacity is limited.
“Intercultural” it is the title of the cycle that this year programs films that try on the displacements that take towards another culture and the situations of coexistence between cultures in a same place. The projections are in original.

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.
