Art: Photography at Palais de Glace
The Palais de Glace is hosting two photography exhibitions this winter. Los ángeles de Charly, on the one hand is made up of pictures by Andy Cherniavsky, Nora Lozano and Hilda Lizarazu, all of whom have, at some point in their careers, chosen Charly García as their subject. However, instead of portraying his most controversial moments, as so many photographers have done, these three artists show a different side of the Argentine singer’s life, focusing on his more normal and intimate moments. On the other hand, the venue is also hosting the 28th annual edition of Argentine Photojournalism, put forth by ARGRA, that is, the Argentine Association of Graphic Reporters. Out of the 3,000 pictures from all over the country that the selecting committee received for the exhibition, only 300 of them made the cut and they offer a set of varied and unique looks on Argentine current events.
Tuesdays through Fridays from 12pm to 8pm and Saturdays, Sundays and Holidays
from 10am to 8pm at Palais de Glace (Av. Libertador 1248). Both displays are on until August 12. Free admission.

Theatre: Empleados at Teatro del Abasto

Written and directed by José Mehrez, Empleados revolves around the peculiar awful world that arises in every workplace. Focused on illustrating the distance between the characters’ true calling and their actual jobs, Empleados becomes an essay of sorts reflecting upon how what we do for a living ends up ruling our day-to-day lives. Structured in 21 short scenes, the play works as a puzzle that goes from one workplace to another, thus showing a slice of what it’s like to work at an office or a shopping mall, a call centre or on a bus. With these multiple vignettes, Mehrez thoroughly explores not only the jobs themselves, but also the effect they have on our lives and how much they can end up defining them.
Fridays at 11.30pm at Teatro del Abasto (Humahuaca 3549).
Tickets at $180 available through

Ballet: Ludmila Pagliero at Teatro Coliseo
Back in 2005, Ludmila Pagliero became the first Argentine dancer to join the Paris Opera Ballet. In 2012, she was even named étoile, which is the highest rank a dancer can reach at the institution. This weekend, Pagliero is offering two presentations in Buenos Aires, where she was born, raised and trained in dancing at the Colón Theatre. After having performed in Japan earlier this year and having danced in a contemporary ballet with her company back in France, she has chosen to put on a classic in her hometown: she is performing, alongside the Ballet del Sur, La Sylphide, a ballet which, quite appropriately, was first put on for the first time by none other than the Paris Opera Ballet. A highly acclaimed artist, Pagliero is at the pinnacle of her career, and this performance offers a chance to see her dance in all her splendour.
Friday, July 28, and Saturday, July 29, at 9pm at Teatro Coliseo
(Marcelo T. de Alvear 1125).
Tickets from $300 available through

Music:  Pájaro de Fuego + Mariana Bianchini
Renowned band Pájaro de Fuego is joining forces with Mariana Bianchini to present their record, where Esteban Sehinkman’s music (he plays Rhodes and synthesisers for the band) combines with Bianchini’s unique lyrics. Established in 2008 and having recorded three records already, Pájaros de Fuego has become a household name on the local music scene. Despite not fitting cleanly into any one particular genre of music, the band has heavy influences from jazz rock, electronic music and psychedelic sound. Made up of Sehinkman, Daniel Pipi Piazzolla, Lucio Balduini and Mariano Sívori, this is their first collaboration with singer and lyricist Bianchini, giving way to a record that is both musically bold and poetic in its words. Bianchini has released seven records with her band, Panza, and has also explored the solo arena with three albums of her own.
Thursday, August 3, at 9pm at Thelonious Club (Salguero 1884).
