Alicante, 16 December 2016
Translated by María Miró Maestre
Singer Conchita, Titoyaya Danza, UA Theatre and Contemporary Dance Clubs, Javier Robles and theatre group TEADA are some of the proposals for this semester's ACUA programme.
ACUA programme is back and ready to rock the second semester. Between January and June 2017, 19 activities will give us the opportunity to get closer to performing arts at the University of Alicante. The first show of the programme will be a recital by UA Choir on 20 January, and we will put an end to this year's ACUA with the performance of UA's Lifelong Learning Programme Theatre Club on 13 June. All along these months, the UA Auditorium will hold theatre classic performances of texts by authors such as Lorca, Arniches and Beckett; several concerts that range from classical music to contemporary pop; dance performances that will touch our hearts and make us think at the same time. In short, we will have the chance to get acquainted with the latest avant-garde trends, get immersed in the classics, analyse reality through art, and, above all, have a good time. Enjoy ACUA!
Ten new exhibitions will be shown at the University of Alicante Museum (MUA) and Aifos Exhibition Room (Faculty of Arts 3).
We will begin the art programme with the exhibition "Poema envasado al vacío" ("A vacuum-packed poem") by Rafael Maestro. The author will disentangle, with an ironic vision from art itself, how culture affects society and how the latter fights back. Art can be considered dangerous and it sometimes has to be vacuum packed in order to isolate it. (Opening on 19 January at 7 p.m. MUA-Sempere Exhibition Hall).
On 27 January MUA will open one of the most important exhibitions of the programme for this semester: an original exhibition devoted to Arcadi Blasco. The exhibition "Arcadi Blasco. Art, arquitectura i memòria (1954-1974)", which is curated by José Piqueras, will be shown at "El Club" exhibition hall. This display will try to describe and spread the artistic works that Blasco created for several temples and civil buildings in collaboration with some architectures during his youth. In other words, it will show us Arcadio's work before he began his artistic period with stained glass, mosaics and ceramic murals.
February will include an exhibition devoted to Marie Curie at the Aifos exhibition hall and the photographic artwork made by José Antonio Robés at MUA's "Cool" exhibition hall. Robés has created a unique collection of photographs for “El vigilante de la nieve”, which is the title of one of the most symbolic poetic works by Antonio Gamoneda (Miguel de Cervantes Award 2006). Both authors wanted to share their work and join the creations they did with the same main idea, in an individual way.
Ovidi (MUA-Cool Exhibition Hall), Mulier, Mulieris (MUA-Sempere Hall) and Intérpretes de Nuremberg (Aifos Exhibition Room), will be the three exhibitions displayed in March. The traditional Social Humour exhibition will open to the public in May at Aifos Exhibition Room and we will finish the programme with the exhibition Photo Alacant (MUA-General-use Room) and Contemporary Art Gatherings (EAC), in June.
