 Sunday, 24 April 2016: Animalia (RU) (dancing performance)

Monday, 25 April 2016: Rico Loop (dancing performance)

Wouldn’t it be good? Drums, trumpets, bass guitars! Making music with all the sounds you can think of, just like that, without taking recourse to instruments. That is just what Rico Loop does! Using just his mouth and an electronic box of tricks which records the sounds he makes and plays them back in an endless loop, he conjures up entire bands. The RING TRIO will have to scrabble to regain their position again tonight…
Beginning: 8 p.m.; Admission: €10/ €6, if you bring your student-ID card; How to get there: Hellerau – European Centre of the Arts Dresden, Karl-Liebknecht-Str.56, 01109 Dresden, TRAM 8 ‘Festspielhaus Hellerau‘.

Tuesday, 26 April 2016: Sneak preview (movie in original version)

Each Tuesday, the cinema ‘cineplex Rundkino‘presents a new movie in English. In the so called ‘Sneak Preview’ you never know what movie you’ll see. It could be a romantic comedy or a thriller – or something completely different. Part of the excitement is not knowing which genre awaits you but the best thing about the ‘Sneak Preview’ is that you’ll watch a movie before its official release date.
Beginning: 8 p.m. Admission: €5; How to get there: Rundkino Dresden, Prager Straße 6, 01069 Dresden; TRAM 3,7,8,9,11 ‘Walpurgisstraße’ stop.

Wednesday, 27 April 2016: Dresden BigBand (concert)

The Dresden BigBand is not an ordinary Big Band as the name might suggest. They are mixing the traditional big band sound with own compositions and create a unique sound. Thereby, they develop a great merge of Funk, Swing, Soul Latin, Hip Hop and much more. It is remarkable that most of the musicians are still in high school. So we will see where their paths will lead one day.
Beginning: 9 p.m.; Admission: free; GrooveStation, Katharinenstraße 11-13, 01099 Dresden; TRAM 7,8 ‘Louisenstraße’ stop.
