VIATGE AL CENTRE DEL MUSICAL

Author: Sandra Bruna Tuesday 26 April 2016

The story of Dragon Dagom is one of audacity, happiness and success. After surprising the audience with Antaviana, Noche de San Juan and Glups!, and travelling the entire peninsula in a van, Juan Lluís Bozzo’s company bets hard on musicals with an adaptation of the humorous opera Mikado. Soon after, they risk creating something themselves: Mar y cel; and they achieve a great hit within Catalan musicals. With the ambitious Flor de nit, with Manuel Vázquez Montalbán’s screenplay, they pay tribute to the neighborhood of Paralelo, in Barcelona.  No other company from Catalonia has such a path like Dagoll Dagon or a reporter as passionate and fun as Joan Lluís Bozzo, who knows how to keep the audience and the readers stuck to their chairs with a sparkling and nice tale, filled with interesting elements.

MUJICA

Author: Sandra Bruna Tuesday 23 June 2015

An inspiring book about one the most emblematic figures of contemporary politicians.

“A few years ago, when Mujica was elected president of Uruguay, the world discovered a different politician. He lived with little, he spoke his mind and expressed more as a philosopher than as a former guerrilla turned-politician. From a young age he was heavily involved in activism, he lived the sixties from the revolutionary trench, he spent the seventies in the darkest catacombs of dictatorship and in the nineties he participated in the growth and success of the left to become president of his country. Mujica has completed his government with high popularity, economic and social outcomes praised worldwide and specific measures that will be remembered. He has done it combining two antithetical realities. The ideological conception and life style of an anarchist and the functions of a president that concentrates the greatest power of the state ”

AMB ULLS DE NENA

Author: Wednesday 29 October 2014

Amb Ulls de Nena (With Girl’s eyes) is the overwhelming diary that Encarnació Mantorell i Gil wrote during the Civil War, when she was barely a teenager. For seventy years, these documents have remained hidden in a closet in the Horta neighbourhood in Barcelona and therefore unpublished. But thanks to the work of the pedagogy researcher Salvador Domènech, they are now revealed.

The girl Encarnació was seventy years ago portrayed her everyday life on the rearguard: the lack of stock in the stores and the high prices of food, the shame of going out with shabby clothes, the euphoric moments and the pessimism arisen from the ups and downs typical from the war and the toughest moments of death, destruction and loss of her loved ones.

Encarnació still lives in Horta.
