FRIDAY

Kallo Collective will be coming to the Tamayo Museum to put on a circus and theater show. The performers, Gaby Muñoz, Jenni Kallo, Sampo Kuruppa, and Thomas Monckton, have toured around the world so make sure not to miss your chance to see them here. Tickets are 250 pesos and you can get them at the museum.

Head over to ArtSpace México in Condesa Friday night for video performances that explore identity and relations to our body. The event is called Holografía//Homography and includes videos by artists like Sofía Moreno, Leche de Virgen Trimegisto, Igor Dewe and Juriji Der Klee. The event starts at 5 p.m. and entrance is free.

Are feminist fanzines your thing? In EI77 Centro Cultural Autogestivo, you can join the conversation about how to make fanzines yourself. There will be nearly a dozen organizations presenting and the conversation starts at 7 p.m.

SUNDAY

Corona Capital 2016 hits the streets of Mexico this weekend. Acts include Calvin Harris, Lana del Rey, Ryan Adams and some of the most popular indie-pop/rock bands of the last few years.
