There is a conceptual relationship with the work: the artist narrates the formation of the relationship with his models while drawing them, as if he had mapped them physically and psychologically. His pen or brush acts as sensors that scan for substance and interest, for secrets and desires. They register inflections, cracks, contours and irregularities of the body (...) "

Being self-employed, or “autónomo” in Spain is a more than ideal subject for a music comedy, in fact it’s almost surprising that this is the first time such a concept has been brought to the stage.

With one hand reaching ahead and the other on his mobile phone, like everyone else today, he will be forced to take charge of his own life: and self-employment is the only way forward. “Autonomos, the Musical” is a comedy that recounts the adventures of a thirty-something freelancer trying to survive against the cruel Tax Agency, clients with obsessive-compulsive disorder and a very odd accountant…Find out more »

Lee 'Scratch' Perry has decided to take a break from Jamaica in March and tour around Spain, performing again after the success of his previous times in Spain. His Barcelona concert will be on March 25.
Lee Perry has toured Europe, congregating and blessing both old and new fans with his melodies. The "Upsetter" continues to look towards the future, making music reminiscent of African roots but at the same time reaching into the immensity of outer space. Lee is perhaps the only musician of 80 years who can dance right straight, with only one leg and for an hour.
As a pioneer of reggae and a cornerstone for the genre, Lee Perry will always be a great and exciting show to see.
