Swing Workshop by Elise & Didier from Apollo Swing (BE)
Lindy Hop is a social, interconnecting dance where improvisation and feeling are the main ingredients in providing the fun and joy inherent to the dance. Born in Harlem in the 20s and 30s, Lindy Hop evolved to become a mix of tap, jazz, breakaway and Charleston. Come and join them for a taste of the sublime, all fun, no stress. Beginners as well as old hands, in partnership or not.
Elias Elastisch (D)
Elias Elastisch is an excessive actor and quick-change artist. In his programme he combines silent movies with action films, dance theatre with acting and clown elements with comic superheroes – in a very unique way. He changes into new characters telling us the most absurd stories. Be a guest of a “One Men Comedy Adventure” without borders.
Thomas Spitzer (D)
One thing we know about Thomas Spitzer for sure is that he has one of the sharpest tongues in German poetry slam. With a precision of a mathematician, he is able to dismantle human actions and their absurdity while making us all question ourselves: are we crazy or is he?
Food Explorer Tent
The FFYS Festival will offer tasty and varied food and drinks. We try to support local organizations and producers as much as possible while creating space for original, resilient and organic stands. The offer ranges from the traditional grill & fries to more experimental food. New this year will be the Food Explorer Tent, where you can try delicious dishes from Iraq, Rwanda, India, Afghanistan and Syria. Different bars from huge to cosy will feed you with cocktails and the usual beer & co. And of course, we’ll do our best to make the food village a place you’ll all enjoy to spend some time in.
Buzz Your Senses / Beehive
Be honest, what’s happening around you gives you a headache: War and sorrow, people fleeing, ending resources, so much distress in the world. We want you to meet the worldwide experts who are at the forefront of change, and talk to them.
The best of the best. The local scribbler and poetry slam scene has crafted a lot of talent. Come to the arena and watch them stand off in an epic battle of the words.
Global problems hit us too in Luxembourg. Poverty, Environmental destruction, climate change. In Luxembourg, NGOs and associations adress these problems with innovation and a lot of heart. Meet them in our innovative Pecha Kucha series.
Les Têtes d’Affiche
Les Têtes d’Affiche is the result of three young multi-disciplinary clown artists meeting each other during their training at the clown school Le Samovar. They collaborate in their work with other artists: comedians, clowns, directors, videographers, graphic designers. However, the main aim of the company is to create and broadcast contemporary clown shows accessible to all audiences and all places.
