SUN 24 FEB 11 a.m. - 7 p.m.
In the frame of thematic focus On things
At the Dingfest we celebrate the things we love and those we want to get rid of. With concerts, lectures, thing-workshops and Bremen‘s (or even the world‘s?) biggest garbage-marble run. With the KlimaWerkStadt, Mobile Albania and other guests. Last but not least: food, drinks and the Jukebox Thing.
11 a.m. + 4 p.m.
Admission 5 EURO
Since its foundation, the Bremen-based MusicActionEnsemble KLANK has engaged with the most various things, including everyday objects that have very little or no musical history. Sounds are now elicited from them that they would hardly make in the kitchen, bathroom, or living room. What does it sound like when a bag of chips is worked with a hammer? With a special focus on their own history of using materials, KLANK performs a concentrated concert rich in details with ›KLANK plays! - surprising and enjoyably original. Almost without age restriction.
12 a.m. - 4 p.m. + 5 p.m. - 7 p.m.
