Radio Sures / Escucha Pública #1. How to tell stories with sounds, with Antonio Altarriba.

Escucha Pública #1. How to tell stories with sounds, with Antonio Altarriba. Friday 16 November at 8 p.m.

Radio Sures is a new web radio for radio documentaries. Without extra photos, or supporting videos, or multimedia bonus features, or anything like that. They tell stories using only sound resources. Of course that is possible.
They will prove it every month in the public listening sessions in which they will offer narrative sound documents, in Spanish and other languages, with subtitles.
Listening in the darkness, seated or lying down, as if we were in a cinema with a film without images. As Orson Welles said: “Compared to the cinema, radio has the advantage of having a larger screen.” He didn’t say that, but he could have.

The first session will have as a participant writer, professor of French literature and comic scriptwriter Antonio Altarriba, author of the marvellous Arte de volar (Art of Flying) (2010 National Comic Award).

OPEN DIALOGUES
Toxic Lesbian

Mujeres bajo sospecha (Women Under Suspicion). Saturday10 November at 7 p.m.
* The session will be broadcast live as of 7 p.m. via the channel www.toxiclesbian.org and on @toxiclesbian as of 6.30 p.m.

Toxic Lesbian’s Open Dialogues present Mujeres bajo sospecha (Women Under Suspicion), a book that collects the research carried out from 2007 to date, along with a video directed by Cecilia Montagut titled Memoria y sexualidad de las mujeres bajo el franquismo (Memory and Sexuality of Women during the Franco Years).
Female sexuality, denied, silenced or repressed, is made visible in this project that goes beyond the model of an immaculate woman, a mother and wife, placing special importance on non-normative sexualities and homoerotic/affective relations among women.
The lack of any traces of female sexuality from that period impedes a linear history, aggravated by the silence imposed by the context and women themselves. Many suffered repression but there were also resistant subjects who lived out forms of sexuality that questioned the sole heterosexual model, moving away from passivity as destiny.

Participants at the meeting will include the project coordinator Raquel Osborne in dialogue with writer  Raquel (Lucas) Platero, researchers María Rosón Villena and Fefa Vila, and professors Jordi M. Monferrer Tomás and Kira Mahamud, as well as the public in attendance.

SEED EXCHANGE BANK EVENT

Ecosecha
Thursday 8 November, 6 pm

The Seed Exchange Bank is an initiative in favour of decentralizing control of seeds and questioning the management models we generate or in which we take part in this culture with our current way of life. The Seed Exchange Bank and the activities it holds are offered as a metaphor for the need for change in society today.

The first Thursday of each month, a seed exchange session is held for growers, horticulture enthusiasts, and anyone interested in being part of a social network based on organic and sustainable principles, where know-how can be shared about working with seeds and ways to enhance organic agriculture in Madrid.

The Seed Exchange Bank can be visited on a regular basis at the Terrario at Intermediae.

OPEN TERRARIO/ Streaming Scenarios
PlayDramaturgia

Mateo Morral (an extraordinary crime) Saturday 24 November 5 p.m.

“Mateo Morral   (an extraordinary crime)” reconstructs the route taken by two people whose paths crossed one morning in May in 1906: Mateo Morral, 25 years old, a librarian, born in Sabadell and a convinced Anarchist; and Alfonso XIII, 20 years old, on the day of his wedding to Queen Victoria Eugenia. Mateo was waiting, on a balcony on Calle Mayor, for the royal party to go by. He threw a flower bouquet at them with a bomb hidden in it but a trolley wire knocked it to the side and it fell by the people on the street. Over 30 were killed, 100 wounded. Mateo ran away. Two days later, he was near Torrejón de Ardoz, by the banks of the Henares River. A guard named Fructuoso Vega recognized him. Mateo shot him and killed himself.

The route taken by the two performers will be broadcast as the follow in the steps of Mateo Morral, Alfonso XIII and Fructuoso Vega, as they tell us what happened. María Folguera will follow the steps of Mateo Morral, and David Priego those of Alfonso XIII. After crossing paths at the site of the terrorist attack, we will re-establish the connection at the bank of the Henares River, with María once again in the role of Mateo Morral, and David as Fructuoso Vega. The viewer can choose, at any time, which broadcast to follow.

OPEN MONDO PIXEL ARSGAMES
Mondo Píxel

The Evolution of Perfection. Friday 2 November at 7 p.m.

Every so often products appear that improve what had seemed unbeatable. Two examples prove it: the Halo videogames series, in essence a constantly evolving epigenesis of the beautiful mechanical and graphic features already present in the first chapter of the saga, and Mondo Píxel, a reference for the press in the videogames sector whose successive mutations have made an unstoppable news diamond shine that started out as a blog. At the next Open Mondo Píxel meeting we will offer the amazing maturing rejuvenation of both: thanks to the expert work of the x6tence team, we will offer an absolute premiere of the evolved combat of the upcoming Halo 4, and among the competitions, prizes and contests generated from the Haloverse we will present to the world the revolution following perfection: Mondo Píxel Ultimate.
