  • Workshop : 29.02.2020, Professional Development QLD in Toowoomba
    The Immersion Weekend, organized by the MLTAQ, German Teachers? Branch Queensland, offers a great combination of professional learning for teachers of German as well as the opportunity for exchange and networking. The Goethe-Institut Australien will present on new teaching materials and give an overview of upcoming projects. During the day we will focus on 30 years of the Berlin Wall and science projects like Kindeuni.

  • Concert : 19.01.2020, Annette Krebs live: Hobart
    Annette Krebs uses subtle sounds, noises and tones to create electroacoustic sound collages and compositions. She has developed instrumental sculptures using carefully selected objects which she connects to sound controllers and thereby performs.

    Since her childhood Annette Krebs has played a range of musical instruments, exploring various styles of music, often crossing over into visual art. She lives as a freelance musician and composer in Berlin, has released numerous albums and regularly performs internationally.

    In Australia, the artist will perform at Mona Foma Festival in Hobart, and Soundout Festival in Canberra, and several other  events in Perth, Sydney and Melbourne. The tour is supported by the Goethe-Institut.

  • Silent Film with Live Soundtrack : 07.03.2020, ?KinoKonzert 07: Ashley Hribar | Dr. Caligari in Canberra
    Considered a quintessential work of German expressionist cinema, The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari tells the story of a deranged hypnotist who uses a somnambulist to commit murders on his behalf. Created by Robert Wiene in 1920, the film is widely recognised as a precursor of psychological thriller films, and a metaphor of the horror of tyrannical political power.
     
    100 years after its original release The Cabinet of Dr. Caligari maintains its spellbound reputation, as a result of its dreamlike narrative style and landmark expressionist set design. For its KinoKonzert series the Goethe-Institut will screen a new, digitally restored 4K copy of the film, along with an original soundtrack composed and performed live by Ashley Hribar.
     
    Ashley Hribar is an Australian born pianist-composer who has lived mostly in Germany in recent years. Thanks to countless tours and recordings, he has developed an international reputation as a versatile musician embracing classical as much as contemporary electronic music and cross-disciplinary art forms. Ashley?s compositions are poly-stylistic collages often employing extended performance techniques, voice and electronics.

  • Theatre play : 17.02.2020-22.02.2020, Marlene Dietrich: Perfect Illusion
    Marlene Dietrich: Perfect Illusion

    Much has been said about her. A lot of it is inaccurate or contradictory, even in respectable biographies. Marlene Dietrich: Perfect Illusion aims to separate the real person from the image created by Hollywood and Dietrich herself (?I like the legend?).
     
    Award-winning German actor and cabaret performer Uschi Felix has spent several years researching Dietrich. ?I thought I knew a lot about her when I began, but what I found was astonishing: a fascinating story that deserved a greater audience.? Dietrich was highly educated, fiercely independent, and with great chutzpah pitted herself against the Hollywood patriarchy. She defied her Nazi admirers, not only by refusing to return to the Fatherland but by spending her entire fortune on getting Jews out of Germany (she was later awarded the Israel Medallion of Valour).  Discipline and duty, instilled by her strict German upbringing, remained paramount throughout her seemingly bohemian life.
     
    Here the authentic Dietrich, aged 74, prepares for her last concert. Juxtaposed with her celluloid image, she reveals herself in her own words and in snippets from her famous songs, taking us on a self-deprecating journey through her life. What emerges is a woman of substance who, despite her prickly persona, is vulnerable, affectionate, and above all likeable.

    Written and performed by Uschi Felix
    Directed by Sara Grenfell
