12 April – 18 April 2019

Friday, 12 April:  Hotel of the Immigrants (Text taken from the Hellerau website) “Argentina, Argentina – that’s where the Maradona comes from!” That is what the German Jewess Johanna heard when she was in Europe for the first time fifty years after her escape. As popular as Maradona is, the hundreds of thousands of Europeans who found refuge there from the dictatorships and poverty of the last century seem forgotten. The others must flee. That is the current European perception. CapriConnection and the author Anne Jelena Schulte travelled to Argentina to take a different perspective. In poetically condensed texts, they tell […]

Excursion to Bautzen – report

Finally March greeted us with a wonderful sunny weekend! A perfect opportunity for our international researchers to explore Dresden’s surroundings! So why not to go on a day trip to Bautzen? Although Bautzen is a small town, it attracts many people with its beautiful medieval atmosphere, nature and unique Sorbian culture. As a hill-top town located on the Spree river it offers amazing views. The inhabitants of Bautzen are very friendly and even at the end of our city tour our city guide gave some of us a little book with winter fairy tales from the region. A motivating present […]

Friday, 5 April: SekeSeke#4 The Kukulida special event “SekeSeke” reaches its fourth edition and this time it will take you on a journey to the Iberian Peninsula. La Jose is a very talented singer from Madrid who this Friday will sing alongside Josel Ratsch and will also be accompanied by DJ ArYstan. Actually, ArYstan is more than just a DJ, rather, he is something of a “multi-instrumentalist” who will also play a live DJ set following the concert alongside the other two artists. After living for a while in Madrid following his high school graduation, he returned to Germany to […]

Friday, 22 March: Musical World Trip An economy round the world ticket costs somewhere between $2,500 and $6,000 depending on the route, airline, and starting country; however, this Friday’s musical round the world trip will cost you no more than a small donation!

What’s On in Dresden 15 March – 21 March 2019

Friday, 15 March: Ayanna Witter-Johnson (Concert) Time Out magazine writes: “Cellist and singer Ayanna Witter-Johnson has to be heard to be believed. Her self-assured style blends a honey-sweet vocal delivery with bewitching cello-playing.” Her own website describes her as a rare exception to the rule that classical and alternative r&b music cannot successfully coexist. The singer, songwriter, and cellist graduated from both Trinity Laban Conservatoire of Music and Dance and the Manhattan School of Music. She was a participant in the London Symphony Orchestra’s Panufnik Young Composers Scheme and became an Emerging Artist in Residence at London’s Southbank Centre. She […]

What’s On in Dresden
1 March – 7 March 2019

Friday, 1 March: Dresden Sauna-Night You haven’t had the full experience of living in Germany until you have visited a sauna. German saunas are quite well-known among foreigners who live here for longer periods of time due to the curious observance of a very important unwritten sauna rule: everyone must be naked! At a first glance it may sound somewhat weird, for people from more traditional cultures such a practice sounds unimaginable and perhaps even bordering on promiscuity but it is quite an interesting experience to be in a place where everyone simply accepts that we all as human beings […]

What’s On in Dresden 22 February – 28 February 2019

Friday, 22 February: D/Troit + Upon My Soul D/Troit, Denmark’s finest soul band is once again in Dresden and comes to prove how Northern Soul may have a completely new side to it. It is nearly unbelievable to say that this authentically sounding band has its home in Copenhagen out of all places. Frontman and singe Toke Bo sings with such passion that it would be completely plausible to assume he had lived half of his life living in the Motor City of Detroit and then spent the other half touring the American South. Accompanied by an unbelievably talented band, […]
