F is for Fun


Improvisation is one of the stage disciplines that requires the ultra sharp reflexes and a complete confidence in one’s craft. Conejo Blanco, Conejo Rojo is a one-person play that dares the performer to do exactly that. There are no rehearsals and no pre-readings, the entirety of the script is kept in sealed envelope simultaneously revealed to the audience and the performer. Discover what’s behind this experiment by Nassir Soleimanpour at La Teatrería. Tickets start at $400; be there before 8:30 p.m.


In complex times like this, there is only one thing to do: declare Cumbia o muerte. Surrender to the call of the tunes played by Valentina Conde & La Voluntad and Sonido Confirmación. Shake your head, your soul and renew yourself through the sacred ritual of Friday night dancing. The location is Av. Niños Héroes 161, in Doctores. The party starts at 8 p.m.


A belated St. Patrick’s Day is better than none at all. Take out your green clothes and head to Parque España to join the celebration of Ireland’s patron saint. Music and dance will be the main attractions, showing performances by The Triskells, the bagpipes of the Galicia Cultural Association in Mexico, and the Celtic Dancers Company. Entrance is free, be there at noon.

What better thing to do on a Saturday than beer tasting? Over 500 labels of artisanal beer will quench the thirst of attendants to the sixth edition of Cervefest 2017. Special guests for this year’s event will be the Czech Republic and Tabasco, so not only will their beers will be available but also their best dishes. Add music, conferences and set it Xochimilco, a perfect day, anyone? If you have your tickets, the Turibus will give free rides to festival goers departing every hour from the Ángel de la Independencia. Deportivo Cuemanco, 12 p.m. Tickets are $150.


The letter of the day is T and the word is Trans.

Transgender, transsexual, and transvestite, as well as non-conformist are the terms used nowadays to describe identities that have been around for ages.

There are no chances like second chances. La Casa del Cine knows this, that is why they regularly have openings in their program to bring old jewels back to the big screen. This week’s second shot is for Carmín Tropical, a story about a transgender muxe woman who travels back to her hometown to find her friend’s murderer. This award-winning film, which celebrates diversity and invites us to think outside the heteronormative box, starts at 5 p.m and tickets are $45.
