Is culture all-embracing?

The end of truth

Christina/ May 22, 2019/ Culture

We have first nighter tickets. It is Monday evening and it is raining cats and dogs outside. It is not tempting at all to leave home once more. But still, the prospect of a genre thriller by a Brunswick director lures me: The end of truth. At the same time a TV film critics augurs well for it. Well, I

Allah versus Coca Cola: What does that have to do with Iran?

Christina/ April 2, 2019/ Culture

Discussions on alleged rogue states in this world are numerous. Discussions with those states are little though. Generally there is talk about the opponents instead with them. This misery is being brought onstage by the play “Iran-Conference”. The drama had its opening night on March 30, 2019 at the “Kleines Haus” of the Brunswieck Staatstheater. The stage entertainment of the

Beyond exoticism: African realities of an exhibition

Christina/ March 26, 2019/ Culture

The exhibition “Ruth Baumgarte: Vision Africa. Turn of the fire” opened up yesterday at the Städtische Museum Brunswieck with a ceremonial act. I was lucky enough to be invited as well. The show displays selected pieces of Baumgartes Oeuvre, who travelled frequently to South and East-Africa from the 1980ies on. It is a very interesting exhibition that does not obey

The magic of the Anatolian Lute

Christina/ March 24, 2019/ Culture

I love oriental Music. This confession might not come as a surprise to my attentive readers. Chances to listen to that kind of music in my city are rather seldom.That’s why my radar war alarmed right away when I learned that a concert with Anatolian music was taking place this saturday. Therefore I went to St. Thomas church in Melverode

Lies and spices are siblings

Christina/ March 16, 2019/ Culture

“Lies and spices are siblings. The lie turns every tasteless happening into a spicy meal. The truth and nothing but the truth is only expected in front of judges. But just as the flavour the lie is supposed to complete the story behind.” Titled “lies and spices are siblings” the one-hour reading by Dr. Andreas Döring takes place on March

The year of the rabbits

Christina/ February 25, 2019/ Culture

Last year my boy-friend and I discovered private views for us. Well, it is not only about the partly served free drinks and appetizers (however, we do not reject them). In fact, it is nice to start the weekend with an unexpected interesting event. A happening, like we might not have expected it in a big small town like Brunswieck.

Hiking tour as a fountain of youth

Christina/ February 25, 2019/ Culture

The second stage of the cloister hiking path leads us from Ilsenburg to Wöltingerode. Next to the wonderful nature a lot to history-charged places are to be discovered. First of all there is the former cloister Ilsenburg. Alongside the “Green ribbon” (the former inner German border) we come across the “Jungborn” and the former forester’s lodge “Eckerkrug”. In the “Schimmerwald”

Springime

Christina/ February 23, 2019/ Culture

Hiking on the fringes of the Harz mountains can also be fun – that’s what we learned the last time we walked from Vienenburg to the cloister Wöltingerode. Stages like the Harly tower and the Herbal-August-Cave were still kept in good memory. Last Sunday we were up to broaden our knowledge about the “Harzer Klosterwanderweg”. Once again we start our

Paper chase to Mecca

Christina/ February 11, 2019/ Culture

Upon entering the stage two requisites catches my eye: a dormat that read: “Please take off your shoes” and a camel run by a battery, tied to a palm tree and lapping around it. Whereas the first item could also mark the entrance of a Swabian flat, the combination of both makes clear that this is about a theatrical excursion

Wallpaper: Inner life off-wall

Christina/ February 7, 2019/ Culture

Only a few square meters become a fateful space for four people. They do not know each other, they meet accidently and cannot escape. In the end their inner-life is literally off-wall and everything has changed. This involuntary skinning of four actors has been staged by the Italian Sara Angius in a play called wallpaper, consisting of a pacy, multi-faceted
