Musica: International visit by the Marmen Quartet
The British Council in Argentina presents the widely acclaimed Marmen Quartet, a group of musicians formed at the Royal College Music of London who will be playing works by Beethoven, Ravel and Webern, as well as some pieces by Arnold Schoenberg and Gustav Mahler. Made up of Johannes Marmen, Ricky Gore, Joshua Hayward and Steffan Morris, they are coming to Argentina as part of the Foco Pierre Boulez, in an international tour where they will be playing in concert halls back home and abroad. Paying tribute to Boulez, they will offer a series of concerts in Buenos Aires and even giving a master-class for local string quartets. From Friday, June 16 to Sunday, June 25, the ensemble will be playing at the Centro de las Artes UNSAM, the Usina del Arte, and the Centro Cultural Recoleta.
Friday, June 16 at 8pm at Centro de las Artes UNSAM (Sánchez de Bustamante 75).
Free tickets must be booked in advance.
Saturday, June 17 at 7pm at Usina del Arte (Caffarena 1).
Free tickets to be picked up at the venue two hours before the show.

Music: Nadia Szachniuk presents Luna Atrás
After having played as guitarist and composer for Sting, Dominic Miller, and after having presented her second record Luna Atrás last month, Nadia Szachniuk is playing live this weekend, where she plans to go over her new record once again. In Szachniuk’s new work, the concept of nighttime works as the glue that holds the whole album together, with every song — both the covers and original compositions — revolving around that theme. This makes the record sound sweet, filled with lullabies that give the music a dreamlike tone. a native of Salta but now settled in Buenos Aires, Szachniuk has devoted most of her life to singing, and does so with influences from different music genres, both popular and academic. In Sunday’s show, she will be playing with Bruno Moguilevsky, Alejandro Starosielski, Facundo Guevara, and Nacho Vidal.
Sunday, June 18 at 8pm at Espacio Roseti (Roseti 722).
Tickets at $130 sold at the venue.

Photography: Contemporary Mexico at FoLA
After the tremendous success of Vivian Maier’s display at FoLA, the venue is now opening a brand-new exhibition. This time, the photos are meant to portray the complexities and the unseen details of Mexico today. To do so, the exhibition will feature several series of photographs by Miguel Calderón, Alejandro Cartagena and Pablo López Luz. Calderón exposes, using not only photography but also a video, the perversions of power and politics, with a somewhat humoristic yet dark tone. Cartagena, on the other hand, chooses to explore the world of cars and the roads travelled thanks to them, as well as the expansion of the urban areas in Mexico with his series “Car Show” and “Mexican Suburbia.” Last but not least, López Luz’s work illustrates the landscape at the border with the United States, which offers an original approach to the subject, and a series on modern ruins.
From Monday through Wednesday, from 12pm to 8pm, at FoLA (Godoy Cruz 2620). Closed on Wednesdays. Tickets at $80 sold at the venue. Discounts for students and senior citizens available.

Theatre: Fugaz at Timbre 4
Last time the acclaimed Osqui Guzmán put on a play at Timbre 4, it was El Bululú, centered around the works of José María Vilches and written by himself and Leticia González de Lellis. This time, they are performing again at the same theatre with quite a different idea in mind. Fugaz will test their expertise of improvised comedy, and will feature them going on stage with no script and having made no previous arrangements regarding plot or form. This will make the play new every time, and the audience, a witness to the creation of it. Both Guzmán and González de Lellis are experts in improvisation, with Guzmán’s strength lying in the histrionic use of his body to tell a story and amaze the public.
Fridays at 8.45pm at Timbre 4 (México 3554).
Tickets sold at the venue at $250 or through at $230.
