Saturday, 14 September:
Frozen Records

As early as 1923 the Bauhaus artist László Moholy-Nagy worked on the still young medium of records for his sound experiments. This evening follows Moholy-Nagy’s curiosity – and celebrates the record. The concert performance “Frozen Records” by Claudia Märzendorfer is at the center, and with it the transience and tenderness of art: records made of ice that only sound for a short time before they dissolve and finally fall silent.

Beginning: 9 pm; Admission: 11 €; How to get there: Europäisches Zentrum der Künste Dresden; First Tram 7 ‘Infineon Nord’ stop, switch to Bus 72 ‘Dresden Am Festspielhaus’ stop.

Tuesday, 17 September: Movie night

“Once upon a time… in Hollywood” is shown in the Schauburg Dresden with original tone and German subtitels. A good way to train your German skills, while enjoing the latest film of Quentin Tarantino! Quentin Tarantino’s ninth film takes place in Los Angeles in 1969, at a time when everything is in upheaval. Even TV star Rick Dalton (Leonardo DiCaprio) and his long-time stunt-double Cliff Booth (Brad Pitt) have to find their way in an industry they hardly recognize anymore.
The film features a large cast and numerous storylines and pays homage to the last moments of Hollywood’s golden age.

Beginning: 4:45 pm; How to get there: ; Tram line 7, 8, 13 ‘Bischofsweg’ stop.
