As far as eighteenth-century celebrations are concerned, the undisputed kings are the roasts. However, there are many other activities with which you can celebrate and to enjoy some it is enough to get in front of a screen. The Violeta Parra Museum, for example, will offer this Wednesday at 7:00 p.m. the “Quick Dance Workshop of Cueca”, developed collaboratively with the National Union of Artists (UNA) and in charge of the dancer and choreographer Valentina Pavez and the musician and folklorist Héctor “El Gitano” Pavez. The day will last one hour and will be intended for participants to know the basic steps of the national dance, its choreographic figure and its relationship with music and singing. There will be a sign language interpreter and will be streamed through the museum’s social networks. Also at 7:00 p.m., but on Saturday 18, the cultural space will broadcast through the same channels a concert by Los Metayponga, in the context of its Cuecas Cycle. This band, born in 2011 by musicians attached to the sound of the Cueca Chilenera, is united by the legacy and style of the Central Station Neighborhood and is currently developing its third musical production. The finishing touch of the eighteenth celebrations in the cultural space will be in charge of the singer Pickúa, cult of the genre “La Chilena”. As a singer of traditional music, the artist manages popular repertoire of the territory surrounding the Andes Mountains: cuecas, tonadas, polkas, foxtrot, huaynos, waltzes, criollo, afro Peruano, pasacalle, San Juanito, cumbias and coastal rhythms. In his concert, which will be on Sunday at 7:00 p.m., he will show a selection of cuecas mounted with the guitarist Sebastián Aravena.The Center for Artistic and Cultural Extension (CEAC) of the University of Chile will celebrate these festivities by bringing to homes -also for free- a selection of works by Chilean composers, which can be seen for free online this Thursday and Friday, at 7:40 p.m. The program will begin with maestro Luis Alberto Latorre, artistic director of the Cycle of pianists, soloist of the National Symphony Orchestra and winner in 2016 of the President of the Republic National Music Award. From his hand you can hear the record of the first concert of the short cycle that was presented in 2020, which included works related to very important national composers of the early twentieth century, such as Alfonso Leng, Pedro Humberto Allende, Acario Cotapos, Domingo Santa Cruz, Próspero Bisquert and René Amengual, as well as a work by Enrique Soro.

Urban plans mean that the pergola and its workers must leave to make way for cars. The pergoleras, along with students, workers, journalists and artists, oppose the measure. This is what “La pergola de las Flores” is about, a musical comedy that is also one of the great classics of Chilean theater. Under the direction of Héctor Noguera, this work can be enjoyed on September 26 at 6:30 p.m., courtesy of the Gabriela Mistral Cultural Center.
