EXPERIENCE MACBA 7 pm ESMUC adds a soundtrack to the MACBA Collection For the first time, the ongoing collaboration between MACBA and the Escola Superior de Música de Catalunya (ESMUC) has involved the school’s music composition students. The work carried out over the last few months in close collaboration with the Museum’s curatorial team has resulted in original compositions inspired by some of the works from the MACBA Collection that form part of the exhibition The Immaterial Legacy.

EXPERIENCE MACBA 9 pm Bebeto Cidra Dance Company presents Limits and Occupations. A Proposal for an Active Choreography An interactive piece inspired by the work of Cildo Meireles, in which the choreographer Bebeto Cidra transfers the Brazilian artist’s capacity to create works of great sensorial power into the world of dance. A show based on the concept of the limits of what we see and what we perceive, in the sense of physical or mental impositions that coerce the freedom of the individual.
