Festival of English-language School Theatre (F.E.S.T.)
Friday 6 March at 19:00, Saturday 7 March at 14:00 & 19:00, Sunday 8 March at 14:00 & 19:00

Mierscher Kulturhaus is hosting the 

Festival of English-language School Theatre (F.E.S.T.)

This unique festival will give you the chance to enjoy a wide variety of stimulating and entertaining plays and to support the vibrant young talent active in Luxembourg.

The Festival of one-act plays will highlight some of the excellent English-speaking artistic talent which exists among pupils in schools in Luxembourg, but which often passes unnoticed by the wider public.

With English becoming more and more important as the language of communication and business in the modern world, the need for children to use it actively has become a crucial life- skill. Several schools around the Grand-Duchy have in recent years augmented their normal English classes with English theatre options or extracurricular activities. These options give the students a chance not only to improve their language abilities by using it practically on the stage, but also to develop their presentational skills and their self-confidence while learning about theatre arts.

Duration max. 45 min per play, 2 plays per performance.  Age: 13+ Language: English

Tickets: Adults: €24; Students: €12 (Festival Pass - Adults: €60, Students: €30)

Independent Little Lies, Footnotes
Sunday 8 March at 17:00

Independent Little Lies presents

Footnotes (in English with French sur titrage)

Footnotes takes the audience on an unusual journey, not just a simple walk but a collective cry for protest.  More than just a stroll through the feminist movements, this piece explores our questions, research, and sense of responsibility as women in a world where the battle for equality is not yet won. With a hard look at our own privileges, we deconstruct our doubts and ideas about the boxes we live in, whether they be visible or invisible, impossible to bear or deceptively comfortable.

Running time: 1h10.  Tickets: €12; Reduit: €6; Kulturpass: €1.50.  To reserve: billeterie@neimenster.lu or 26 20 52 444.  for more information: click here

Lifting the curtain on a world of jealousy and ambition, this new production, from one of the world's most innovative theatre directors, Ivo van Hove (Network, NT Live: A View from the Bridge), asks why our fascination with celebrity, youth and identity never seems to get old.

Running time: 3h. Adults: €19, Over 60s: €14. To reserve: kinepolis.lu

Escher Theater, Axe
Thursday 19 March at 20:00

Escher Theater presents

 Axe

"Darling, we don’t have any more tea!" "The world is falling apart, it's official. Clinging to their privileges as to the misery of the world, a couple of decadent plutocrats lost touch with reality. By dint of fearing this supposedly hostile exterior, everything breaks down around him: objects, furniture and language.

Become completely paranoid, they live recluse, jabber without tail phrases or head and exhaust themselves remain standing - in the axis. Between the porcelain cat and a bazooka religiously hidden under the dining table, the worst is to be feared…

This piece of theatre has few words. 

Running time: 1h. Adults: €20, €16; Children: €9, €8.

TNL, Why?
Saturday 9 May at 20:00

Théâtre National de Luxembourg  presents

Why?

The famous director, Peter Brook, and his longtime partner, Marei-Hélène Estienne, present a new work musing the ultimate questions of existence.  

A poignant reflection created by a theatrical master mind as his career comes to a close, Why? is an extraordinary introspective opus by a relentless artist and visionary. In it he asks: Why theater? What’s it for? What is it about? Brook, who has been based in France since the 1970s, has revolutionized the performing arts around the world for multiple generations of artists through his work and writings.

Theatre is a very dangerous weapon. - These words have been written in the 1920s by one of the most innovative directors the theatre has known, V. E. Meyerhold. He saw all the menacing dangers theatre and art were going through in the 30s in Russia. Until the very last minute, he hoped that the revolution could win, and paid for this with his life.

Running time: Unknown.   Tickets: €25. To book: luxembourgticket.lu, tickets@luxembourgticket.lu or call 47 08 95 1.

Broadway Stories 

Similar to the Showtime 1 & 2 productions, an evening filled with the best moments from various well-known musicals performed by a large wind orchestra, a chorus and solo singers, as well as dancers. The selection contains songs with various themes, from sad and serious to funny and joyful, ensuring that there is a good mix of different emotions and experiences throughout the show.

Some songs or medleys will be played instrumentally just by the orchestra, to feature the full palette of great sounds it can produce, some songs will have soloists performing them in accurate costume with props and a projected backdrop, some songs will feature 8 to 10 dancers, and some songs will have a chorus with or without soloists. This provides a good mix of different art forms combined to one colourful show.

TNL, The Open House
Thursday 11 June at 20:00, Saturday 13 June at 20:00, Tuesday 16 June at 20:00

Théâtre National de Luxembourg  presents

The Open House

Father and Mother have united Daughter, Son and Uncle around them in their living room in order to celebrate their wedding anniversary. From behind a newspaper and out of the protection of his restraining wheelchair, Father keeps lashing away at his offspring and brother with cynical meanness and dark, deadpan remarks. Numbed by habit, the family dismisses these attacks with dismal resignation, every now and then preparing a counter-offensive before realising such a project‘s utter waste of energy.

The family dog’s vanishing sets in motion a series of disappearances leaving Father remain immured in his wheelchair whilst the familiar decor around him changes – the human punching bags, which used to surround him and which he’s relied on for survival, are eventually removed, leaving him more and more disoriented and crumbling.

Anne Simon is directing this short play by Will Eno.  Eno is a playwright who constantly explores that fine borderline between truth and fiction.  'The Open House' won the 2014 Obie Award, the Lortel Award for Outstanding Play and a Desk Drama Award.

Running time: Unknown.  Tickets: €20. To book: luxembourgticket.lu, tickets@luxembourgticket.lu or call 47 08 95 1.
