Every September in Madrid leads into a fantasy world halfway between the melancholic autumn and the colorful summer already bidding farewell. Those two are as beautiful and fun as those that Slava Polunin, clown and Cirque du Soleil founder, explores in the city’s show of the year. Madrid goes back to childhood, an age of fervor and sparkle, but also of darkness and cold. Slava’s Snowshow at Teatros del Canal gets deep into our minds to fill them with pure fantasy, connecting with a timeless spectator who won’t forget a show like this.
You can paint you stay in Madrid with solidarity colors very close from your Flat Sweet Home Ayala Penthouse. The Soul Food Nights invite you to a magical, exclusive evening with dishes by the best national and international chefs, who will donate your plate to Acción contra el Hambre. The attendance cost is 250 euros well invested in an enjoyable night that’ll let you help those without access to daily meals. A plan that joins together the best of cuisine and human solidarity during an unforgettable evening on September 19th in different parts of Salamanca neighborhood. After a night of solidarity, you might want to get inspired, and nothing better for it than a visit to the exhibition Trajes para Shakespeare y Cervantes. It presents the works by Spanish designers such as Devota & Lomba, Amaya Arzuaga, David Delfín o Ágatha Ruiz de La Prada, whose dreams have dressed the characters by two of the geniuses of universal literature. Getting to know the bohemian Conde Duque neighborhood while you’re walking back to your Flat Sweet Home Gran Vía can be quite a travel through time.
There are two final options for you by the end of this week of September in this imaginative city. The Hybrid festival blurs the borders between museum and spectator by taking all kinds of artworks to places with a wider audience. It’s one way to get art closer to people and unusual exhibition venues. The city will be full of conceptual artworks and bold installations, forming an enjoyable route that you can see here. While you’re going over the exhibition, you can also make a stop at the Centro Cultural Conde Duque to enjoy the De Madrid al Suelo festival on September 18th. In this festival, different music genres from all over the world will take you through the venue’s gardens.
