The registrants must arrive at 2.15 p.m. in Av. Corrientes 6271 - CABA, to be transferred to the space where the action will take place.
The project's proposal is a social and cultural exchange with the most vulnerable neighborhoods through hip-hop and literature. Within the framework of the BP.19, this will happen in High School Nº 43, with an artistic orientation, in Villa Fiorito, Lomas de Zamora. As a starting point, the performance combines -using rhymes and rap- the adaptation of an original text after which the piece is named, written in 1907 by Rubén Darío, an icon of modern poetry. The participants and protagonists of this performance will be the students of this school, who will previously enroll to participate in a workshop led by the composer and his artistic team. This preliminary stage serves as work process that takes place in the same location of the piece. Viewers arrive in the premises on special buses provided by the organizers of the Biennial.
