happy sunny Monday

... to celebrate a wonderful festival, I want you to show a colorful, casual denim style:

First day in Uni after a week and a lot of experiences inspired me on this sunny Monday.

FINALLY - my camera is working again and I can avoid Iphone-pictures... see below:

Facebook starting....

Hey my dear folks,

still some preparations are going for the festival and it seems like my normal life will continue from Wednesday on....

To update you anyway - Facebook will start for me soon....well... you may ask - why so late?
That is a good question I am going to answer you in a short while ;)

Stay keen and fashionable. See you tomorrow (or maybe soon on Facebook;) !

Projekt Tanzfestival: "638kg Tanz"

I really needed that Paris trip to take one last breath before the final preparations of that amazing contemporary dance festival in Essen (remember Essen? That cool city was "Kulturhauptstadt 2010" eng. Cultural Capital of Europe in 2010).

By chance I got the position of an assistant in that festival "638 Kilo Tanz und weitere Delikatessen", which is presented by the amazing choreographers Sabina Stücker and Jelena Ivanovic for the seventh time in a row.

It was the first time for me to look behind the preparations of festival organization - and it was simply amazing on how many things you work.

The festival will take place in Essen from 7.11-10.11.2013 in three different locations. If you are in the neighborhood and interested in experimental, contemporary dance - make sure to come by! 


It started on Monday: 4/11

Indeed, I met women of presence. Stayed with their usual sangfroid and guided the preparations with compulsion, whether it was about light, music and sound or the artistic performance atmosphere.

Feeling and breathing the performances of contemporary dance today, resembled what is an emanation of its time and place. The controversy we face in this age illuminated in flesh and bone. Quite sophisticated, don’t you think?

Projekt P: #3 day

The last day started brightly, sunny and with a welcoming blue sky. Checking out after a rather French than continental breakfast I discovered the cemetery "père lanchaise". 

Later I would notice the graves of e.g. Jim Morris and Oscar Wilde. Still - a beautiful, marked by time and the passed periods cemetery with giant "sépultures" and almost withered stones. 

It was a great place to enjoy sun and silence before I met my French friend Alexandre at the Bastille for a coffee before I headed back home. I was told, that this is quite a student hotspot for evening activities and vintage clothes. Next time I want to spend more time over there!

I choose definitely train or airplane for my next visit. The traffic jams near the Belgium boarder made me crazy..

Anyway looking forward for my next Paris trip. Hopefully soon.

Projekt P: #2 day

It started as it ended the day before. My Benetton coat is still not fully dry yet but with my wanderlust packed in mind, the first real day in Paris began. 

One highlight was the sudden musical performance of four kitchen cooks and waiters in the "parc du Luxembourg". 

Enjoying some quick lunch on a bench, people started crowding around that little, green metal pavilion in which instrumental brass music was performed. 

Another highlight and recommendation for good modern cuisine was Tholoze in Monmatre. An enormous choice of wine and delicious, regional meals are for you waiting. 

Check that out next time you are in Paris!
