FILMPOLSKA: EIGHT DAYS OF NEW PERSPECTIVES FROM THE EAST

FILMPOLSKA: EIGHT DAYS OF NEW PERSPECTIVES FROM THE EAST

You’re up with the play on Polanski. How about Holland or Szumowska? Brush up on the greats of Polish cinema during the upcoming 13th edition of FilmPolska from 25.4-2.5.2018. The most significant film festival of its kind outside Poland offers a rich and varied program catering to cinephiles of all tastes – from art house productions, cult classics and documentaries to animation and video art. There’s a special focus on emerging talent this year: Young Polish filmmakers will have the chance to present their work to Berlin’s film critics and crowds. Screenings will take place in various cinemas across the city, including Babylon, Arsenal and Wolf Kino. The festival opens with Elwira Niewiera’s and Piotr Rosołowski’s award-winning documentary “The Prince and the Dybbuk”, a film that sheds new light on the life and work of Polish-Jewish filmmaker Michał Waszyński — one of the most eccentric personalities of European cinema during the early 20th century. See which other films pique your interest – the program this year offers myriad thought provokers and tearjerkers. Whatever you pick, prepare to gain a whole new perspective on our next-door neighbour to the east. (Text: Anna Dorothea Ker / Photos: FilmPolska)

“THE ORIGINALS”: DISCOVER WHAT LIES AHEAD FOR THE CIRCUS

“THE ORIGINALS”: DISCOVER WHAT LIES AHEAD FOR THE CIRCUS

As a geometric shape, the circle embodies unity, symbolizes perfection and evokes a place of encounter. We may remember this circular form and its meaning from childhood trips to the circus: It was here that the round arena provided a clear view of the events unfolding in front of enthusiastic spectators. On 7 & 8.4.2018, Berliner Festspiele promises to take us back to those days, while showing us what the future has in store for the circus with their “Circus: Die Originale” program. A team of ten researchers and 40 artists from 17 countries have been exploring contemporary circus and its potential to bring together art across different genres, with a view to create new and original formats. Their results will be presented on Saturday and Sunday: Viewers will be able to marvel at fascinating acrobatic performances of the productions “Somnium” by Compagnie MPTA and “Mobile” by Jörg Müller. In addition, there will be an exhibition and audience discussions. To conclude the event, visitors can get moving themselves and dance off into the night to the music of L.I.A.

THE LONG NOW — MAERZMUSIK FESTIVAL ENDS WITH 30-HOUR HAPPENING

THE LONG NOW — MAERZMUSIK FESTIVAL ENDS WITH 30-HOUR HAPPENING

The Long Now is the closing event of this year’s MaerzMusik – Festival for Time Issues on March 24 and 25, 2018. For 30 hours, the audience will be able to lose all sense of time in an audiovisual perception room. Set against the rough backdrop of Kraftwerk Berlin, the project brings together concerts, performances, and installations. The clocked pace of our daily routines is relinquished and instead, we enter a time bubble that alters our perception of time and music. MaerzMusik‘s aim is to draw attention to this state, having focused on it in all previous editions of the festival. The musical spectrum offered ranges from avant-garde and experimental electronics to ambient and noise. The combination of the music and the architecture of the space allows for a unique experience. The Long Now makes us forget about the outside world and so we can indulge in the sonic here and now. Visitors are welcome to stay overnight: Beds will be provided.

The Long Now (MaerzMusik), 24-25.3.18, begins at 19h.

WANDELISM — STREET ART EXHIBITION FOR ONE WEEK ONLY

WANDELISM — STREET ART EXHIBITION FOR ONE WEEK ONLY

Street art’s excitement is due to its transient nature; it emerges from a city and cannot withstand that city’s transformation over time. It is precisely this fact that is the focus of the Wandelism project. Wandelism is an amalgam of the German word wandel – meaning change – and the English word vandalism. Starting on Saturday (17 March 2018), visitors will be able to admire large-scale works of well-known graffiti and street artists such as 1UP, Dave the Chimp, Loomit, and Dejoe in a 2,000-square-meter space in Wilmersdorf. The organizers are dedicating this project to a good cause. The proceeds will not only be donated to a social project, but also fairly distributed among the artists and volunteers. Visitors will determine the amount they want to spend for admission themselves, an excellent idea. Our verdict: You should definitely mark your calendars for this one-week exhibition because there is no hope of it being extended. The building will be demolished after the show!

PEOPLE SUMMER FESTIVAL: ART AND MUSIC IN AUGUST 2018

Summer is coming – and with it the new festival season. We have already marked down one event on our calendars: the People Summer Festival brought to you by the Michelberger Hotel Team. This year and for its second edition, the stages and studios of Funkhaus Nalepastraße will be the venue of about 140 artists. The People Summer Festival is non-hierarchical and does not follow a strict program, so well-known musicians will be performing alongside newcomers and artists on the rise. For one whole weekend, the music itself will determine the rhythm of the day. The box office is open now! (Text: Jennifer Prietzel)

People Summer Festival, 18./19.8.2018, Ticket price: €120.00, pre-sale online
