Maskenada – E roude Fuedem duerch de roude Buedem
The silvery red dress
An audio trail at Ellergronn in Esch, within the framework of « E roude Fuedem duerch de roude Buedem » for Esch2022.
In keeping with the motto „Remix Culture“ MASKéNADA revives and reinterprets feminine characters of ancient tales and legends for the European capital of culture Esch2022.
Inspired by Mil Goerens’ repertoire “Eiser Soen” among others, 6 differing spectacles will be performed for 6 months in 6 southern municipalities (Esch, Bettembourg, Dudelange, Cessange, Mondercange and Differdange). This new « Trail of Legends » is both an artistic walk and narrative theatre across Minett’s beautiful and mystical nature.
From Esch to Differdange, through Bettembourg, Cessange, Dudelange and Mondercange, the red thread leads us first to Ellergronn: “The silvery red dress”
On an audio trail throughout Ellergronn Ellergronn you can experience the ancient tale of “Ellergronn Castle” anew with the whole family. What was the life of a knight’s wife in the early Middle Ages like? On the path through the forest you will discover objects from the wild Knight’s lifetime and you will be able to listen to the tale in 4 different languages by downloading it via QR code on your smartphone. 1 tale, 3 authors, 4 languages (Luxembourgish, French, English and Portuguese).

More acts to come …
Over the years, the Out Of The Crowd Festival has established itself as one of the references in the field of new music, whether it be rock, indie or electro. It has welcomed more than 150 bands from all over the world such as Beak >, Russian Circles, Battles, Gogo Penguin…
This 18th edition will take place on 30 April 2022 with a rich and eclectic line-up on the two stages of the Kulturfabrik.
As usual, the festival will welcome local bands: this year it will be the turn of the brand new post-rock project from Luxembourg, The Cookie Jar Complot, which, in a few months, offers a very tasty instrumental experience.
The Canadian trio Metz – a veritable noise-rock steamroller with grunge overtones, signed to the mythical Sub Pop label – returns to the OOTC stage for all thrill-seekers. Their fellow members of Holy Fuck officiate in a more danceable but devilishly effective style at the crossroads of rock and electro. The American quartet Nothing will be presenting their feverish, electric Shoegaze for the first time in Luxembourg, with a background of decibels and melancholic melodies. The New York collective Bodega works in a danceable and vindictive post-punk register. Jonathan Bree is a New Zealand artist with a mysterious universe offering a music at the crossroads of a very 70’s groovy pop and dark New-Wave sounds. Mdou Moctar is one of the spearheads of desert blues, bringing back the sounds of the Sahel and mixing them with more modern sounds. Indie rock will not be left out with the arrival of the formidable Penelope Isles from the United Kingdom, who combine sweet pop sounds with airy and racy guitars, while the Spanish quartet Melenas will be delivering their bubblegum and nervous melodies, all in Spanish.
CNA – Steichen Collections – The Family of Man
DISCOVER THE EXHIBITION “THE FAMILY OF MAN”.
The exhibition The Family of Man has been enthusiastically celebrated by the general public and criticized by artists as critics, and is now legendary in the history of photography. It was conceived by Edward Steichen as a mirror of humanity with the aim of building bridges between peoples – postwar photography was the vehicle for this humanist message. For his ambitious project, Steichen collects 4 million photographs to finally select 503 of 273 authors from 68 countries. With these, he composed a manifesto for peace and the fundamental equality of humans. The exhibition includes pictures from photographers such as Robert Capa, Henri Cartier-Bresson, Dorothea Lange, Robert Doisneau, August Sander, Ansel Adams … that are staged in a modernist and dramatic manner.
Shown for the first time in 1955 at the Museum of Modern Art (MoMA) in New York, the exhibition attracts nearly 10 million visitors during its international tour, after which it was bequeathed to the Grand Duchy of Luxembourg.
Today, the historical exhibition is a unique photographic heritage, registered by the UNESCO as Memory of the World and the fully restored collection is shown in the renovated Castle in Clervaux, combining a contemporary approach and interpretation to the respect of its history.
Open from 1st March to 1st January, Wednesday to Sunday from 12 – 6 pm.
Guided tours on request outside opening hours (Wednesdays to Sundays).
Closed on Mondays and Tuesdays, except public holidays (Annual closure from 2 January to 28 February).
