Friday, 22 June: The Johnny Cash ‘Summer2018’ Show

Johnny Cash is without a doubt one of the most recognizable voices of the 20th century. Today, nearly 15 years after his passing, the legacy of the “Man in Black” lives on through The Cashbags, Europe’s most successful Johnny Cash revival act with frontman US singer Robert Tyson. The Dresden-based band doesn’t only look similar to the iconic “Johnny/June/Tennessee Three” quintet line-up; they also sound incredibly authentic, as if the original band were on stage. The band’s repertoire also includes hits by June Carter Cash, Carl Perkins, Bob Dylan, and The Carter Family, rounding up to a true Johnny Cash show, full of charisma and original style. The group has been playing throughout Europe for ten successful years in front of more than 250,000 enthusiastic fans in Germany, the Czech Republic, Austria, Italy, Switzerland, and Holland. This Friday, the show will be part of the traditional Elbhangfest (further information below) as well as mark the opening of Dresden’s 27 Dragon Boat Racing Competition and will take place on the “Stage on the Water”, right next to the famous “Blaues Wunder” bridge.

Under the motto of “Founders and Inventors – Technology on the River Banks”, the Elbhangfest goes into its 28 edition this year. This is definitely one of if not the most traditional street festivals in the city, spanning all the way from the Blaues Wunder Bridge down to Pillnitz, a true festival on the river’s banks. This year promises to unite feelings of nostalgia with innovation, with exhibits of inventions from the past paired with new findings. Among others, the clock makers and glass blowers of Pillnitz will be showing off their arts. The entire program, however, offers a variety of activities spanning from the beloved silent disco to a graffiti workshop. A small movie theatre will show silent movies, visitors will have the chance to participate or simply watch a breakdance battle, and of course, over 15 stages will showcase live music and other presentations. The event lasts for three days and will begin on Friday, the 22 and continue onto Sunday. The entire program with its more than 300 attractions may be downloaded below (in German). A highlight of the program is the evening parade, which ends the festival on Sunday evening, begins at 10 p.m. from Pillnitz, and goes all the way down to Loschwitz, ending at around 1 a.m.

Sunday, 24 June: Dragon Boat Race

The Dresden Dragon Boat Racing Festival is Saxony’s largest Dragon Boating event and will reach its 27 edition this year. In fact, Dresden hosted the first German National Dragon Boat Competition back in 1991 and continues to keep up the tradition of dragon boating by hosting an annual racing event at the Elbhangfest. Dragon boats originated in China and were traditionally made in the Pearl River Delta region. Anthropologists believe that these boats were already used for racing over 2500 years ago in southern central China. The sport first gained popularity in Europe during the 20th century, with the first European race being hosted in London, in 1980. 11 years later, the sport finally arrived in Germany and today, its practice has spread throughout a number of German cities. This year, the Welcome Center’s team, the Scientific Crushers will take part in the 400 m race next to the Blaues Wunder bridge for the fourth consecutive year.

Tuesday, 26 June: Music in the Palace: Bach Pure

Johann Sebastian Bach is one of the most well-known composers of all time, in Germany as well as abroad. He was a composer during the Baroque period in Germany (then the Holy Roman Empire) and has since the 19th century often been regarded as one of the greatest composers of all time. Although most of his compositions were for organ and other keyboard instruments, he is now well-known for nearly all of his known music. He composed concertos for the violin and for harpsichord, and suites, as well as chamber music as well as for orchestra. This Tuesday, students of the Dresden Music School will present works by Bach including a violin solo, works for the violin and harpsichord, as well as a couple of violin concertos. The concert will take place in one of the lesser known palaces of Dresden, the Brühl-Marcolini palace. The palace was built in 1727 as a garden palace, in an area which ever since the late 17th century was the location of a royal garden. The beautiful palace was even the residence of Napoleon Bonaparte for a short period of time in 1813 during the Napoleonic occupation of Saxony. Ever since 1849 it hold the Friedrichstadt Hospital, for which it is better known in present days. Beautiful music in a beautiful location, definitely not a bad way to spend a Tuesday evening!

Wednesday, 27 June: Nobel Laureates at TU Dresden – Serge Haroche

This Wednesday, the TU Dresden welcomes Serge Haroche for his talk about the interplay of light and matter. The physicist trapped and boxed not Schrödinger‘s cat, but a small light particle – a photon – for investigating the quantum mechanical effects of the collision of light and matter: He trapped photons – which usually disappear when they come upon matter – in a mirrored box for one tenth of a second: Enough time for the light particles to collide and reflect about one billion times at the mirror surface – and for the experimental physicists to guide single atoms across the box and analyze their interplay with the photons. The complicated undertaking of capturing a photon, as well as the subsequent examination of the crossing atoms needed a brilliant strategy, which was incorporated in a refined experiment at the École normale supérieure in Paris; for his findings illuminating overall quantum mechanical problems, enabling new insights into our world’s microstructure, Haroche was awarded jointly with David Wineland the Nobel Prize in Physics in 2012.

Beginning: 7p.m.; Admission: Free, be sure to register on the link below; How to get there: Programmkino Ost, Schandauer Straße 63, 01277 Dresden; TRAM 4, 10 ‘Altenberger Straße’ stop.

Thursday, 28 June: Batsheva Company – The Young Ensemble

Premiering this Thursday, the Batsheva Company presents a piece uniting modern dance with an interesting take on language. A mix of dance and plastic arts, dancers use their bodies not only to move in unusual ways but also to draw images on a black board. In this way, the performers tell a story not only by using their bodies as in most dance acts but also through the use of written and drawn language. Naharin’s renowned creation from 2001 makes use of the great Austrian playwright Peter Handke’s Offending the Audience in order to explore the scope of language by its boundaries. Naharin created this piece in collaboration with Batsheva dancers and with Karni Postel as musical consultant. Original music by Postel herself, Habib Alla Jamal and Shama Khader. In 2003 Naharin received the Bessie award for Virus.
