#OpeningsAndPremieres #Exhibitions: week of 29 Sept- 5 Oct

Stimmungsmache/ Make-believery

Sept 29 ► Stimmungsmache/Make-believery by Suzan NoesenGap Offspace

Four installations which include drawings and paintings. The drawings picture mostly expressive body positions representing different emotional states. Upon determining the role of these emotions, the drawings are placed in installations. Inspired by graphic novels, psychology and life’s everyday confrontations, the work addresses intimacy, feminity, identity, belonging and group dynamic.

opening 6-11 Gemeindeamtsstrasse 13, Leipzig, Germany

Nicola and Peter Seaton-Clarke in The mysterious Mr Love from English Theatre Leipzig
Nicola and Peter Seaton-Clarke in The mysterious Mr Love from English Theatre Leipzig

I know that woman. She works hard to please. She’s not afraid of her own shadow, but she is afraid of her own reflection. Or at least the one she sees in the mirror. When she meets Mr. Love she likes the reflection of herself in his eyes. That empowers her. But who is this “mysterious Mr. Love”? We know him too. He’s a dandy. Looking sharp. Catching eyes…..the ones with the long lashes. He knows it. He uses it.

Under the direction of Tom Bailey, superb performances from Nicola Chapman and Peter Seaton-Clark will be on offer next week. It will definitely be sold out, so get your tickets NOW:

Fri 2 and Sat 3 Oct@ Neues Schauspiel Leipzig

cabon copy building

Oct 2 ► Carbon copy building, a comic strip opera from Opera Factory Freiburg @ Westwerk

Although built to exactly the same specifications, architectural twins have very different histories and  are frequented by very different people. Inspired by this curiosity, in 1999 New York composer collective Bang on a Can (Michael Gordon, David Lang, Julia Wolfe) collaborated with the American comic artist Ben Katchor (libretto), creating a work similar to comic strips dialogues with a mix of minimal music, rock and new music.

For Opera Factory Freiburg’s rendition director Joachim Rathke and conductor Klaus Simon have expanded The Carbon copy building to include four pieces of Johann Sebastian Bach’s “Art of Fugue”.

Premiere
Fri 2 Oct 8.00

Here’s your chance to participate in a living installation. Each year more than 70,000 people are diagnosed with breast cancer in Germany each year. That’s why Haus Leben is asking you to paint some shoes pink and donate them, along with a little cash, to Pink Shoe Day. Bring shoes or help arrange the ones that have already been donated. In 2013, the first year, we made the spiral from 5000 shoes! more info

 

treppenhaus galerie NBL

Oct 3 ► Treppenhaus Galerie Kunstkabinen@ Noch Besser Leben

You know those little rooms on the landings between floors? Mine is storage, but I think they were toilets at one time. You may have even lived in a flat where you used them as a toilet. Well, the ones in the building that houses NBL have been turned into little exhibition spaces. The goal is to keep them as exhibition spaces, but this is the first installation. They’ve been there since July, but it’s your last chance to see them because this week is the finissage. Video, drawing, painting, installation….it’s all GOOD!

paradox

Oct 2 ► Paradox by Andrea Garcia and Chris Chros(Ria.is.dead) @ Theatre Impermanent

curated by Buti Sekhalanga

text: Andrea Garcia Vasquez

A structural fiber artist from New Jersey, USA; currently residing in Leipzig, Germany, She received her BFA from the School of Visual Arts, New York City in 2014.SheI focuses primarily on sculpture, installation, and painting, but she executes many projects in different mediums. Her projects are inspired by conceptual and technical forms of weaving. She says to weave is to interlace independent, individual materials and allow for them to become dependent on each other in order to form one united whole.

In present day, the ability to make something by hand or by scratch is rapidly vanishing in the dependence of technology. Technology is also the cause of isolation within humanity today, changing the dynamic of how humans communicate and connect. As a female artist, she purposefully use these craft techniques to produce non-functional art objects to remind us of the sum that we as a community compose; while, also, triggering a visual dialogue between history and present day society. With this approach, she patiently creates tedious, abstract compositions inspired by love, nature, and interaction.

Ria.is.dead

She is a human from earth who uses the process of collage mixed with painting. She collects materials from calenders, magazines and her own photographs and creates abstract pictures with different themes. Please don’t ask her about the sense of her art, because there is none.

#GlobalIssues: The source of the refugee crisis

The source of the refugee crisis

By Daniel Leon

During the last weeks European policymakers have been fighting with each other over the best way to respond to the current refugee crisis. However difficult the political negotiations are – they are a mess; much worse than the Greek debacle, as far as integrity of EU institutions are concerned – no refugee relocation and integration plan will be effective. The reason is that any European-only-plan ignores the source of the problem: the Syrian civil war.

Refugee and migrant flows from Northern Africa and the Middle East had been steady for the last years until the last one, which increased dramatically due to Syrians fleeing the civil war. One has to keep in mind that this war is not recent. It started in mid-2011, which means that it has been raging for over four years. Many of the incoming refugees coming to Europe left their homes years ago. More than four million Syrians have been sheltering themselves in refugee camps in Turkey, Egypt, Jordan, and Lebanon, or inside Syria itself. In addition, eight million Syrians have been internally displaced. Therefore, the current dramatic wave of refugees that we are now seeing is not only due to the civil war itself, but to a tragic calculation by these people: There is no hope that the war will end soon, nor that they will have a home to come back to, because of the horrifying destruction. Hence, to understand how the refugee inflows are going to develop, one needs to look at the Syrian war.

The war in Syria shares many traits with the Vietnam War or with the Russian occupation of Afghanistan, except for the fact that it is a lot more complicated. Like these latter wars, the Syrian one is a proxy war, meaning that many nations are fighting each other indirectly. The Iranians heavily support the Assad regime (the current Syrian government), and their archenemy – Saudi Arabia – supports many rebel groups. The Russians also support the Syrian government (mostly because of the Tartus naval base that they have on the Syrian coast, though officially they state that it is to halt the spread of Islamic terrorist organizations that they genuinely perceive as a threat), while the Americans have attempted to aid the rebels. Gulf states such as Qatar are trying to exert influence and have joined in aiding some rebel groups.

However, the quagmire does not stop with the above-named nations sending money and weapons to keep the bloodbath going, but with non-state actors that have profited heavily from this humanitarian nightmare. These groups include the sensationalist Islamic State (IS or ISIS) that is often mentioned in the media. This terrorist group has been fighting against the Syrian government, the Iraqi government, Sunni Syrian rebels, Kurdish rebels, Al-Qaeda affiliates… in short, they have been fighting everyone, and everyone has been fighting them. Al-Qaeda affiliates such as the Al-Nusra Front have been a headache to the Syrian government and international proxies (although it is believed that they have a cozy relationship with some Arab Gulf states). The Kurds have made important gains, as the conflict has opened space on the ground to the possibility of creating their own state – something that angers the nationalist Turkish government of Erdogan.

In fact, Turkey has been a major factor in the prolonged war. They oppose the Assad regime as much as the Arab Gulf states and the West. They see the IS and Al-Qaeda affiliates as a threat like everyone else. However, they have been unwilling to put diplomatic and military pressure – their armed forces are huge and capable – to prevent further atrocities by the Assad regime and IS because weakening these actors translates into emboldening the Kurds, which increases secessionist pressures in the east of Turkey where there is a Kurdish population numbering over 11 million (making them the largest ethnic minority in Turkey). Erdogan is trying to keep the status quo to prevent the borders from shifting and chipping away a part of Turkey. However, this will be hard to prevent in a conflict that has already disintegrated Syria and part of Iraq. It will also come at the cost of the continuing suffering of the Syrian people.

Then there are the former Cold War enemies reliving past memories. The Americans have been very cautious in their interventions because they view both sides (the Assad regime and militant-Islamic rebels) as enemies that they do not want to embolden by heavily supporting any side. This has translated into laughable attempts to intervene in the conflict: The Americans count on a 4- or 5-man rebel army in Syria. The Russians are a different story. Not only have they supported the Assad regime before with weapons and money, but they have also recently increased military aid with more sophisticated equipment. The Assad regime has suffered military setbacks, and increased aid by the Russians shows Assad’s increasingly dire situation and Putin’s willingness to make sure that the Syrian dictator does not fall. The question is: How much are they willing to invest? Yesterday it became known that the Russians reached out to the Saudis – their enemies in the conflict – to discuss solutions to the conflict; they have also been in contact with the Americans. The hope is that the Russians, and other nations, are becoming wary of the future of their investments in Syria, which have only produced Syrian suffering in return.

Many people were excited about Pope Francis’s tour of Cuba, the United States, and his speech at the United Nations General Assembly. However, I would pay more attention to today’s intervention by Vladimir Putin, the Russian president. If he lays down a change of strategy in Syria that sees a reduction in hostilities, it will save Syrian lives – and reduce refugee outflow – more than any blessing bestowed by the Bishop of Rome.

#GoingGlocal: Rubies the Size of Peas

Image from gratisography.com.
Image from gratisography.com.

Editor’s note: We started this column, for which we encourage contributions from a diverse public, with a series written by Leipzig-based German author Diana Feuerbach. The theme of the column is narrating a transnational or cross-cultural experience that has indelibly shaped one’s life. For our author today, Leipzig-based Ukrainian writer Svetlana Lavochkina, such an experience has been learning English, and the mark left by the fascinating, rambunctious character from back home who instilled that love for the language in her, a love she has carried with her to Germany and nurtured throughout her life so far. Sometimes things come full circle in the most unexpected ways… 

Rubies the Size of Peas**

By Svetlana Lavochkina*

My name is Svetlana. I learn English every day. I am learning English now. I have learnt some English already. I have been learning English for ten years. If I hadn’t been so lucky I would have never had a chance to learn English. Even the gorgeous Present Perfect Progressive have I mastered, and the mysteries of the nebulous Subjunctive Mood, too, as you can well hear, without ever having visited London, which is the capital of Great Britain and stands on the river Thames.

I live in a fuming Eastern-Ukrainian town with dandelions poking through concrete in some places. Grey people swarm into trolley-buses to get to factories in the morning. In the evening they storm groceries to get some sausage for supper.

As for me, I don’t mind an hour’s ride to school in a bursting trolley-bus because I am fortunate to go to the only school in the town where English is taught from the first class. Maria Ivanovna, the town’s premium teacher of English, reigns there. We are all in awe of her. She makes us meek and silky just with the glance of her bespectacled eyes. Maria Ivanovna takes a syringe and injects a dose of success right into our assiduous bottoms. She says, ‘Don’t you dare come to see me in ten years unless you are driving a black Mercedes, working in the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and own an apartment in Moscow’.

We try to detect Maria Ivanovna’s mood and the degree of her irascibility by her clothes. Experience has shown that Maria Ivanovna is in the worst of her moods when she wears blue Margaret Thatcher suits. It is then that she throws objects around and bangs our heads against the blackboard at even the tiniest mistakes. On the contrary, the nicest queen-like half-smile crosses her face when she wears red. It is usually then that her ears are adorned with rubies the size of peas, and, believe it or not, it is their warm shimmer that melts my brown school uniform and my skin under the uniform and pours the mellow melody of the strange language directly into my veins.

I am jealous of Maria Ivanovna’s jewels, the more so because I know that I myself could get rubies like this by right of inheritance, but I never will. They say my great-grandmother Celia was married to a rich merchant in Odessa. She was an illustrious beauty. She spoke five languages, had relatives in London and never condescended to wearing such vulgar jewels as rubies. Even to the market place, accompanied by her kitchen-maid and a drunkard hired for a kopeck to carry the heavy baskets, she chose the best vegetables and chicken for a Sabbath meal wearing no less than diamonds the size of cherries.

But then the Revolution swept the wealth of the family away together with the diamonds torn directly from her earlobes by a waif on the streets of hungry Odessa. It was only in the thirties that Celia’s surviving children were able to afford to give their mother earrings albeit only rubies the size of peas, so she had to condescend to the red.

The earrings were inherited through the female line. When Celia died, my grandmother wore them, and after that, my mother. Unfortunately, my mother lost them shortly before I went to school. Not once was she reprimanded for that.

I gaze at Maria Ivanovna in scarlet glow and imagine myself not in a black Mercedes, not in the ministry of foreign affairs and not in a flat facing the Kremlin. In my dreams I go to London, step on to a boat on the river Thames and meet a whiskered young lord whose accent is the finest RP. We fall in love and marry and live in his castle with a ghost. To the ghost I also speak in my own finest RP.

I gaze at Maria Ivanovna in scarlet, she is gleaming. I think how lucky I am to be sitting here. Everybody says that it is impossible without connections or heavy bribes, customary and going without saying nowadays, but my parents are ordinary clerks, they have neither money nor connections. English equals freedom and wealth, though nobody dares to say that in our concrete town. So parents tacitly gamble all they possess on their children’s future, because English is a spaceship, a password, a catapult to a different, perilous, much railed against and forbidden world, a world teeming with bright colours and ingenious people.

It is widely known that a healthy bribe is a passport into Maria Ivanovna’s classroom. They say she receives several eager mothers in her flat simultaneously, and she has them all wait in different rooms and holds her audience with them separately so that they can’t see each other. There is even a wild story passed on in a whisper that Maria Ivanovna once locked a mother in the bathroom because all the other rooms had been occupied.

When asked how I had obtained a place, my mother always said, ‘it was your fortune, there was that one last place left’. I finished school and tried to catapult myself into the longed-for perilous world. The concrete curtain fell and the cord of fate connecting me with Maria Ivanovna was cut.

I must confess I’m neither exactly in London nor exactly married to an English lord, neither exactly living in a castle nor exactly speaking RP. I haven’t fulfilled Maria Ivanovna’s black Mercedes precepts either, but I am trying to teach the English I learned from her to German children, who are not in the least fascinated by London, which is the capital of Great Britain and stands on the river Thames. They are not in the least in awe of me either, and if anything, it is I who would need to bribe them to listen.

Last Sunday I was marking the exercise-books and cursing loudly when the doorbell rang. A man with a concrete-like greyness about him was standing at my doorstep. I had never seen him before. ‘Is your name Svetlana?’ he asked me in my home town vernacular. ‘Yes it is,’ I answered, surprised. ‘I was asked to hand you this,’ he said, and gave me a plastic bag. Before I could open my mouth he vanished into the dusk of the hallway.

Inside the bag there was a folded letter and a small tightly cellotaped box.

‘Dearest Svetlana,’ the letter said, ‘you forgot me, who taught you the Subjunctive Mood and told you all about London, the capital of Great Britain, and this is a shame. You were my most diligent pupil and I still remember your charmed face. It was a pity to bang it against the blackboard. So for you to remember me I bequeath to you the contents of this box.’

I undid the cellotape and opened the box. The rubies the size of peas shone up on me, unwinding a caravan of scenes and memories, jewels of the vanished world.

I learn English every day. I am learning English now. I have learnt some English already. I have been learning English for thirty years. Even the gorgeous Present Perfect Continuous have I mastered and the mysteries of the nebulous Subjunctive Mood as well. Had it not been for my mother, who had spent the spookiest hour in her life in my teacher’s bathroom locked from outside to offer her the only family treasure, I wouldn’t be struggling for words to tell you this story now, wearing ruby earrings the size of peas.

** A word from the author about her piece: “I wrote it 10 years ago, actually to be performed at an international Waldorf teacher’s conference, The English Week. Then I submitted it to a British literary magazine, ‘Textualities’, and it got published at once, my very first publication; that made me very happy, the start of my literary journey. In the US, the story was reprinted in ‘In Our own Words’, an international writers’ anthology. This teacher is probably the cause of why I chose English as my literary language – the passion she had kindled in me is still very, very hot.”

#ArtsAndCulture: antidote or dart? Poison to Pens

by maeshelle west-davies

poison

The American in me has the hardest time accepting the loss of Mexican food. This has been the most difficult and lasting adjustment. Of course I went to “Mexican” places in the UK and here, but I’ll spare you the details and just say I won’t be returning to those places. But lately I’ve heard tell of a new place, an authentic place. Well, at least authentic in the way that American Mexican is authentic. It’s run by Americans…..just like the HOTDOG place. And just like the HOTDOG place, it’s not all about food…it’s also about giving space to intimate performance.

You are likely familiar with Leipizig Writers‘ bi-monthly event Sofa Stories. Poison to Pens will be their first offering at their new venue, Tacoholics. JOY JOY!

Poison to Pens will feature the writing of Stewart Tunnicliff and the music of Tom Kühnel and showcases the inspiration behind the inspiration or madness, as it were. Is the reaction to the poison the antidote or the dart?

Among other pieces, Stewart will read his short, “Day beyond days.” Coming from a remote place in England, he gives you a touch of reality there…including the local dialect. Don’t worry about understanding every word. The flow’s the thing…or the lack of it, as evidenced in the first line: “Tuesdays are awful.”

Tom hails from Naumberg. He responds to intense feelings and desires…in English. He says it’s softer and more fluid. Since he mainly does acoustic guitar pieces and writes he music first, this totally makes sense. Looking forward to hearing the notes to, “Our bodies might not be of the same size But our minds harmonise so it’s alright.”

#Dating a daddy

By LoveLy

Leipzig is a bubbly town with a high quality of life. We have a historical old town, many parks, beautiful lakes nearby, numerous cultural offerings, affordable lovely flats, an excessive nightlife selection, lots of opportunities for sport and exercise and a fairly mixed gender and age structure. Also typically Leipzig: all the playgrounds in this town are filled with kids! Sounds just perfect, doesn´t it? Well, it would be, except about one third of their parents are no longer together. This is the point, where a huge problem for singles comes into play… childless Leipzig singles may often not be able to avoid dating mommies and daddies!

The perfect guy with a little restriction

Just imagine you meet this really cute guy, who seems to be the perfect match for you. It is a warm, cozy summer day, the sun is shining and you are lying on a blanket just next to the river, enjoying each other’s company, having good talks and trying to get to know each other on a personal level. You agree with pretty much everything he says, you find you have a lot in common, you just enjoy looking into his smiling face, which seems to magically attract you. After a while you start talking about the negative experiences you have had on former dates. One point you mention is that in your experience all the good ones are already married with kids. His answer to that is something you aren’t sure you really heard and want to hear it again— or not! He is a divorcé and also has two kids! And the best part is that he adds: “But that does not negatively effect any future relationship!”

Not a problem?!

Good to know that these young divorcé daddies consider their lives to be the same as any other single man’s! Why should their child/ren be a problem for their new girlfriend? They are just cute little human beings who require some attention and need to be loved. That’s true, in fact, but your potential new girlfriend wants the same! And one thing you are not looking for at the beginning of a relationship, is having to share the person of your interest! Spending days and nights together, forgetting about everything happening around you, enjoying physical and emotional closeness, enjoying just having found each other… that’s what you want at the beginning of a relationship!

The naked truth

When you’re dating a daddy it’s more like this: phones need to be turned on, otherwise you might miss an important call! Sleepovers are hard to navigate because he must get up early to take his kids to Kindergarten. Spending the weekend together is likely impossible because he needs or wants to spend the afternoon with his daughter. Dropping in spontaneously for an intimate encounter would not be a good idea because his kids could pop in at any minute. Going dancing together on a night out seems complicated because he might then not be fit enough for the soccer date with his son the next day. A romantic holiday together is something you hope for, but his daughter needs to accompany you because she has got vacation. Do you notice anything? There is just too much BECAUSE going on. And these BECAUSES are not just a figment of my imagination, they were all based on people’s real life experiences.

This column is not about protecting you from experiencing the same. It is just a reflection of reality. All the mommies and daddies out there should be aware, that having a child does influence a new relationship a lot. And not only in a positive way! Dating someone with kids means cutting back on many things. This is something both sides should consider. Being honest about your status and being able to find a good balance between a new partner and kids is something indispensable under these circumstances!

If anyone wants to share her/his experiences with this topic or is burning to give some advice, just share it!

#MoviesOmU: Movies in English and other original foreign languages in Leipzig, 24-30 September

Here’s our regular listing of films being shown in English and other original foreign languages (with labels such as OmU, OF and OV) at Leipzig cinemas for this movie week. Although not dubbed, the movies often come with German subtitles, so you can still access the movie if you don’t know the original language but know some German. These listings may look a bit different every time, but it’s because they reflect our mood. And we’d get bored anyway if we did it the same way every time, ya know. The info is still there, though.

Our highlights this movie week are an intimate-sounding film about the inner impact of the collapse of the Greek economy, an Italian indie horror movie that sounds a bit like “The Blair Witch Project” to me (call it childhood nostalgia), and a celebration of peaceful civil disobedience… just take a look below! You may also notice there’s a (documentary) film festival going on – the movies marked here with Mythos Freiheit, including two of our current highlights. Sounds quite interesting. It’s their second edition; we talked about Number 1 before.
