Luxembourg’s theatres mark the start of the theatre season with a celebration day at Abbaye de Neumünster.
A permanent fixture since 2008, the tradition of the Theaterfest sees the country’s leading cultural establishments showcasing their programmes at the Abbaye de Neumünster on Sunday.
Theatres including the Théâtre du Centaure, Thèâtre Ouvert Luxembourg, Théâtre d’Esch, Mierscher Kulturhaus and Maskénada will be staging short excerpts from their forthcoming performances.
For children, the CarréRotondes based Traffo programme and Ettelbrück’s Cape also have some alluring surprises in store.
Visitors will also be able to discover three special shows and installations running in parallel with the main programme: Projet nomade by ILL, which charts the chronology of a play on the road, Le cirque en bullant, a street choreography work, and Hip Hip Hip! Ha!-Instantanés poétiques et Artisanaux, a theatrical installation.
Among the pieces showcased is Maskénada’s production of Lucy Kirkwood’s It felt empty when the heart went at first but it is alright now, directed by Rafael Kohn and starring Larisa Faber (photo by Misch Feinen). The play will be staged in October and November in the former Asia shop in the Hamilius underground passage. More on this in the print edition of Delano published on 2 October.
The Theaterfest day ends with a special show featuring theatre and magic devised and presented by Claude Frisoni and David Goldrake.
