Friday, 19 October: Kinga Glyk Trio (Concert)

Lady Wonder-Bass is on her way to Dresden for what will certainly be an unforgettable concert. The young musician from Poland is nothing shy from being an internet sensation. Her videos on social networks have views going through the roof all throughout Europe and in her home country of Poland she is already gaining fame for being one of the only frontwomen of a famous jazz band in the nation. A true musician, young, beautiful, and incredibly talented, she and her band are managing to do with jazz what others have already managed to do with pop and mainstream: gone viral online. Her career already began when she was only 12 years old when her father, himself a drummer, discovered her talent for music and made her one of the members of the Glyk Family Trio. Today, with her newly released Warner Music album “Dream”, she has been catapulted to the status of star in her home country and is taking over European club and festival stages. Her repertoire includes mainly original compositions as well as classics turned jazzy such as “Tears in Heaven”, her version of which spread like wildfire through social networks. Her concerts go way beyond the groove and fun but rather seek to build a relationship between the music and the listener. Surely a performance that cannot be missed!

Beginning: 8 p.m.; Admission: 23 EUR Regular, 17,50 EUR Reduced; How to get there: Die Tonne im Kurländer Palais, Tzschirnerplatz 3-5, 01067 Dresden; TRAM 3, 7, 8, 9 ‘Synagoge’ stop.

Saturday, 20 October: American Comedy Night (Leipzig)

This event may be a bit further away than usual but for everyone with a student ID, getting to Leipzig is free with regional trains and the city itself is undoubtedly worth a visit. Why not enjoy Saturday by leaving early to Saxony’s most populous city, touring the neighbourhoods and sites before enjoying an American-style stand-up comedy show. Reginald Bärris is an American stand-up comedian currently living in Vienna. Bärris is one of the front-runners of Austria’s English comedy scene and is one of the fastest rising up-and-comers in continental Europe. Hot off the heels of his Sziget Festival performance in August, Bärris is setting off on an intense tour through 20+ cities across Europe. His last show in Munich quickly sold out twice, so be sure to get hold of your tickets as soon as possible. Come join the fun for a night of drinks and laughter! Just be sure to leave enough time to make it back to Leipzig’s main train station, which is a 20 minute walk away, in time, as the last train back to Dresden leaves at 11 p.m. sharp.

Beginning: 6 p.m. ; Admission: 7 EUR; How to get there: Stoned Leipzig, Kolonnadenstraße 13, 04109 Leipzig; Trains leave every hour at 14 minutes past the full hour from Dresden’s main train station or 22 minutes past the full hour from Dresden Neustadt.

Sunday, 21 October: Forro da Serra and Marmitako Double Concert (Concert)

This Sunday, get ready for a musical journey through the rhythms of Brazilian as well as Latin American music with Forro da Serra and Marmitako. Forro da Serra was founded in Dresden by a group of Brazilians and Germans with a passion for Brazil’s most widely spread partner dance and music: forro. One of the band’s members, Eduardo Mota, is originally from the Brazilian Northeast, the region where this musical style was first created. The band’s name comes from the name of his home town, Serrinha, hence Forro da Serra. Marmitako, on the other hand, is a colourful mixture of every kind of taste and musical genre. The band manages to mix up rumba flamenca, ragga, Balkan, and reggae as well as other styles into its unique songs. This wonderful melting pot band is composed by members from Germany, Spain, Colombia, Brazil, and Portugal, all bringing their own cultures and styles for this truly international and diverse band. Originally founded in 2007 in the Dresden Neustadt, the band has now made the world into its stage.

Beginning:8 p.m.; Admission:10 EUR; How to get there: Staatsschauspiel Dresden – Kleines Haus, Glacisstraße 28, 01099 Dresden, TRAM 3,6,7,8,11 ‘Albertplatz’ stop.

Sunday, 21 October: Important! Demonstration “For a Solidary Dresden without Racism!”

In case you missed the e-mail from the university’s student council, here is a friendly reminder for the very important event taking place on the streets of Dresden this Sunday. Starting at 12 p.m. at the Bahnhof Neustadt railway station, the demonstration “For a Solidary Dresden without Racism” will join forces with the Christopher Street Day demonstration which will begin at 2 p.m. to send a clear signal to the citizens of Dresden as well as to the rest of the world that we stand together against extremist right-wing movements such as the “Gruppe Freital” or the “Freie Kameradschaft Dresden” which stem out of the now four year old movement “PEGIDA”. Both demonstrations will meet at 3 p.m. at Pirnaischer Platz, forming a wonderful group of people who will all show together that neither Chemnitz, nor Freital, nor Dresden or anywhere else in the world should accept violence and hate on the streets simply due to a person’s origins.

Monday, 22 October: Maniac Obsessions – Soundtrack by J Korn & S Senf

There was an outcry of indignation not only among censors, but also in the public, when Benjamin Christensen’s silent movie “Häxan” came out in 1922. The work was criticised for exuding a sense of “Satanic cruelty” and celebrating “sadistic orgies”. It is hence no surprise that “Häxan” has become a horror movie classic. But the motivation behind the horror, which is hardly going to shock cinema-goers today, is a different one. The Danish director Christensen not only created a technical masterpiece of early cinema, but also used the film to inform the viewers about how the patriarchy of the Early Modern Age forged myths about witches into the infamous “Hammer of the Witches” which was to become the death sentence for many women. In the style of a documentary, he talks about denunciations, torture, and religious paranoia – that is to say about the maniac obsessions of a patriarchal society. “Häxan” opens a dark chapter of European cultural history that will be presented within the framework of the temporary exhibition “Gender and Violence” with a new soundtrack produced by Jacob Korn and Assimilation Process (Stefan Senf). The showing is a part of this week’s DAVE Festival for Club Culture (full program below, text taken from the event’s description).

Beginning: 6 p.m.; Admission: Free; How to get there: Militärhistorisches Museum der Bunderwehr, Olbrichtplatz 2, 01099 Dresden; TRAM 7, 8 or BUS 64 ‘Stauffenbergallee’ stop.

Tuesday, 23 October: The Shining (Movie)

Jack Torrance (Jack Nicholson) becomes winter caretaker at the isolated Overlook Hotel in Colorado, hoping to cure his writer’s block. He settles in along with his wife, Wendy (Shelley Duvall), and his son, Danny (Danny Lloyd), who is plagued by psychic premonitions. As Jack’s writing goes nowhere and Danny’s visions become more disturbing, Jack discovers the hotel’s dark secrets and begins to unravel into a homicidal maniac hell-bent on terrorizing his family. This film based on Stephan King’s novel of the same name originally received mixed responses from critics, however, assessments later became more favourable in the following decades and it is now regarded as one of the greatest horror films ever made. Over the years it has become a true cult movie, with scenes such as the “Here’s Johnny” scene becoming more and more recognizable by the general public. The university movie theatre “Kino im Kasten” (cinema in the box) often shows cult movies on its big screen and this week will mark the month’s second and last showing of The Shining. Invite all of your friends fans of horror movies and enjoy this masterpiece of modern horror.

Beginning: 8:30 p.m.; Admission: 21,50 EUR; How to get there: Kino im Kasten, August-Bebel-Str. 20, 01219 Dresden; TRAM 9, 13 or BUS 61, 63, 75 ‘Julius-Otto-Straße’ stop or TRAM 11 ‘Strehlener Platz’ stop.

Wednesday, 24 October: The Blizzard by Alexander Pushkin (Theatre)

The Blizzard, also known as The Snowstorm, is the second of five short stories that constitute Alexander Pushkin’s famous series: The Tales of the Late Ivan Petrovich Belkin. The work, so comical and dramatic at the same time, is hailed as one of the masterpieces of Russian literature. Its primary plot deals with the relationships of an aristocratic young woman named Maria Gavrilovna and the unusual coincidences that accompany them. It takes place in the year 1811, when the 17 year old girl, also known as Mascha falls in love with a young Russian officer, Vladmir Nikolayevich. As the girl’s parents do not approve their marriage, they both decide to elope in the neighbouring village, however, a, extraordinary snowstorm separates the two lovers on the way to church. Only in 1816, when Russian troops return from Western Europe does it become clear, what truly happened on that unfortunate evening. The Russian State Academy Theater of The Republic of Bashkortostan put together a theatrical performance for the novel and is now touring through Europe, including a stop in Dresden this Wednesday. The music will be performed by the Russian Academy’s orchestra and the play contains elements from ballet, opera, and classical theater.

Beginning:7 p.m.; Admission: 10 EUR Regular, 5 EUR Reduced; How to get there: Theaterruine St. Pauli, Königsbrücker Platz 1, 01097 Dresden; TRAM 7, 8 ‘Tannenstraße’ stop.
