This “week-end,” (meaning the next several days), there are at least three Latin-American-themed parties, two barbecues, and two flea markets. Let’s hope the weather will follow.
► Noches Latinas in BeyerHaus
Like last week-end and the week-end before, Latino Nights is back at BeyerHaus. Salsa courses, tandem to improve your Spanish and of course a lot of music are all part of the programme.
Where: Blaue Perle
It’s a party with RAP,
HIP-HOP and THUNDA.
► Encounter [zero] by Eileen Dreher
Exploring the dimensions of Project-Space Helmut, Eileen Dreher will set up an installation which can be understood as a drawing in space. Different relations and insights can be found. Using brass rods laid on the ground connected via string to brass panels on the wall, she will question the matter of territories and individual space. The power of the string, its length and the weight of the brass will be stretched to its limits and physical conditions. If the gold-colored material is touched or moved, the system is substantially changed or even destroyed. Eileen Dreher creates a temporary and delicate structure which refers to terms of responsibility, environment and society. The vernissage will be followed by the exhibition on Saturday and Sunday.
► THE STOCKHOLM SYNDROME with Helena Lindegren
Where: die naTo
An experimental improvisation show based on the play by Swedish playwright Lars Norén, famous for his dark portraits of dysfunctional families. The audience gets to decide what relationships the characters have to each other, and then it just starts.
When: Saturday 10:00-19:00 and Sunday 10:00-18:00
Where: Agra Leipzig
(Bornaische Straße 210)
Bouncing castles and more bouncing castles, this is an event for younger children and perhaps not-so-old children. The entry fees are perhaps quite reflective of the fact that it is an event for children? (Entrance: children 7 Eur and adults 4 Eur)
A grill party with music and dance. Music and grills will be provided but you are required to bring your own food and drinks.
► Spring Barbecue
The people at Poniatowski Polski Bar & Restauracja are organizing a laidback barbecue.
