Over the past decade Luxembourg’s theatre scene has seen a dramatic increase in the number of home-grown English-language theatre productions and performances by prestigious touring companies. For its March cover story Delano goes back stage to find out why, as theatre director Anne Simon says, English theatre is thriving and French theatre is losing its influence.
The March issue also focuses on “returning Luxembourgers”, the Grand Duchy natives that have moved back home after successful stints abroad; the local firm still on the hook in the horsemeat scandal; and the sporty fundraiser that helped the International School of Luxembourg’s fitness plan get on track.
Delano investigates the financial transaction tax, the so-called “Tobin tax”, which has been called a “bad idea” by British prime minister David Cameron, but which “will strengthen our single market” according to European tax commission Algirdas Šemeta; how ICT careers are evolving; and how to make the most of employee benefits in today’s economic climate.
Delano also looks at how designers are making homes increasingly personal, and highlights the best St. Patrick’s Days activities in Luxembourg, 16 events to experience and five fun culture spots for kids.
This edition features highlights from Delano’s second birthday bash, the Indian Chamber’s inspiring “Seeing change” conference, and the Grand Duchy’s fête that welcomed the Year of the Snake.
In addition, Norwegian blogger Unni Holtedahl explains how she found her voice, and IT guy John Park talks about how he escapes to nature.
