Carve out a spot inÂ your busy calendars for Friday, June 26, 3-4 p.m.Â That’s when three of our LeipGloÂ columnists – Stewart Tunnicliff (#MoviesAndTV), Maeshelle West-Davies (#ArtsAndCulture), and Christijan Robert Broerse (#Literature) – will give a literature show at Leipzig’s first KUK! Festival. With their different backgrounds and styles (Stew a performance poet, Maeshelle a performance artist, Christijan aÂ word-weaving wizard), you’re definitely in for a treat and surprises. As for the festival as a whole, theÂ nameÂ stands for “Kunst und Kulturfestival,”Â and it will feature a diverse array of attractions, besides the aforementioned Leipzig WritersÂ (aka Inky Ensemble): improv theater, the folk band Soulframe, a science slam, theÂ HTWK universityÂ orchestra, and a party at the end (from 9:30 pm on).Â It’s being organized by HTWK itself,Â and taking place at the universityÂ complex onÂ Gustav Freytag StraÃŸe, off Karl Liebknecht StraÃŸe near Connewitz. Visit the event’s Facebook page for a quick rundown on acts and times.
