KATAPULT – Performance Platform Leipzig

Thu Jul 8th, 5:00 pm – Sun 11th, 9:00 pm

Starting today and running the whole weekend until Sunday! This is a very special collaboration between three of LeipGlo’s favorite Leipziger cultural institutions: Schaubühne Lindenfels, Residenz Schauspiel Leipzig and LOFFT – DAS THEATER.

These three powerhouse locations for creative endeavors teamed up to showcase some of Leipzig’s most exciting creatives and their newest projects.

These installations and performances vary widely, both in their structures, incorporating experimental theater, choreographic practices, and media art, and in their themes, including nature and man, past and future, private and political. Topics include nature documentaries, sickness, and uses of archival footage.

Find yourself the right mix of projects to visit, or try to catch all six until Sunday!


Der Besuch der alten Dame (with English subtitles)

Thu Jul 15th, 7:30 pm – 9:30 pm
Leftover tickets at the box office

—-
One of Swiss drama grandmaster Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s earliest works, Der Besuch der alten Dame is a viciously funny play that is as relevant as it has ever been. Just like the power of money has only increased in our times, so has this play and its central filthy-rich, old lady. Catch this performance of the Dürrematt classic in the Schauspiel’s iconic Große Bühne with English surtitles.

Unfortunately, the date is sold out. However, you can try to catch leftover tickets at the box office.

Techniker Krankenkasse (TK), one of our LeipGlo Matching partners, is putting a lot of effort into getting internationals to sign up for its very friendly service, with a lot of information and resources available in English. You need health insurance to study, work, or do just about anything in Germany, and the public health insurance TK offers is much coveted.
