The Canadian singer Bryan Adams returns to the road with the tour – So Happy It Hurts, which promotes the new album of the same name. “The pandemic and confinement have brought to light that in reality spontaneity can be taken away from us. Suddenly, the tours stopped, no one could just get in the car and go!” says Bryan Adams. “The title of the song “So Happy It Hurts” is about freedom, autonomy, spontaneity, and the enthusiasm of the open path.
He really is an artist who needs no introduction.

Magical Garden Alice
The first OCUBO Magical Garden Alice invites you to enter her world, embarking on a magical journey while reliving the most fun and hallucinating times she has ever experienced.
It’s a sensational adventure, inspired by the two books by Lewis Carroll – Alice in Wonderland and Alice Through the Looking Glass, where you tread between imagination and reality along a whole 1km of immersive experiences, making the visitors spectators and part of the story itself.
These 24 luminous experiences are inspired on the two books of Alice’s adventures, presented as giant light sculptures, light design, interactive and multimedia installations, as an, augmented reality app.

DIA Exhibition: an Unique multisensorial journey
DIA by Carsten Höller – brings together a vast series of works that produce light and darkness. Sculptures with lamps, projections and architectural elements, covering a period from 1987, when Höller was still working as a scientist, to the present day.
About twenty pieces, many of them specially recreated for the exhibition, stripped of any supporting structure, without resorting to any pre-existing lighting system, the space is only illuminated by the works themselves, leading the public through multisensory experiences of altered perception.
