Special: Mini-documentary on Glasgow’s Fear No Colours Theatre Group in Leipzig

in Arts/Culture / Entertainment/Theater by

For those of you who haven’t had a chance to see the absolutely mind- and soul-shaking rendition of Cleansed by the new Glasgow-based Fear No Colours Theatre Group – and for those who’d like a glimpse into what has driven its director and actors, and shaped the characters – I’ve put together a video narrative from a backstage chat I had with them and from their performance I attended Saturday, June 13, at Leipzig’s Neues Schauspiel. Stick ’til the end of the video to hear how they liked Leipzig. https://youtu.be/3L7K4wgnb1Y

Leipzig Events: The Mysterious Mr. Love, a play in English

My first piece for Leipzig Zeitgeist (LZ) about Leipzig Ballet was when Mario Schröder first appeared on the scene. It felt right. I was new. The company as we now know it was new. I went to my first after party that night. I mainly watched, but I did meet some people that would enrich my life. I must say it’s a far cry from my current after party shenanigans. How many years has it been? Five! It feels like yesterday and yet, like a lifetime.

Mark your Leipzig arts calendar: Sofa Stories with singer, author, teacher (March 15)

in Arts/Dance by
