Welcome to the weekend! Hear jazz icons at Trifolion, be in awe at acrobatic show, go clubbing on Sunday, see violin looping or a science fiction play.
1. Experience visual concert by All Reitz Reserved and Sam Flammang
What: Journey around Iceland
Where: Aalt Stadhaus, 38, avenue Charlotte, L-4530 Differdange - Google Maps
When: Saturday, 29 April at 8pm - info & tickets
Chris Reitz (All Reitz Reserved) is an iconic violinist, composer and producer from Luxembourg, known for combining lush electric violin lines with trippy beats. In 2022, Chris went to Iceland, taking in an environment known both for its limitless, calm, and wide-open landscapes as well as its harsh, noisy and wild landscapes of waterfalls and rock formations. Humbled by this experience, he created soothing soundscape and danceable grooves. The music is accompanied by visuals captured by photographer Sam Flammang, who is also exhibiting his pictures prior to the show. A unique, immersive collaboration not to be missed.
2. See science fiction play
What: Brotherhood, A Fantastic Tale

This science fiction play tells the story of a new social centre that is invented after a large part of humanity disappears following a big catastrophe. At this centre, people heal the pain and absence of those lost. The stories then transform these tragic destinies into mythical tales. For this play, director Caroline Guiela Nguyen works with actors of all ages, both professionals and amateurs, putting on an intimate and relatable performance.
