    Together, Pierre Fontenelle and Frin Wolter form the Duo Kiasma, boldly traveling across different stylistic horizons by combining the sounds of their respective instruments, the cello and the accordion, in an unclassifiable repertoire.

  • Villa Vauban
    DJ Set: Shacha
    21H00 – 01H00

    Luxembourg-born DJ Duo Shania and Charlotte have been best friends for over 20 years. Two short years ago, they both decided to play music together and share their passion.

    The girls first discovered their love for electronic music in 2017 at a Jet Hangar festival with an all female line-up in South Africa. Shortly after this, they got inspired to start investing time and energy into creating their own sets. Their aim is to spice up the Luxembourgish music scene by introducing more female energy into the city’s nightlife. Living in Madrid and Vienna, they both work on different projects, however, they already had the chance to play at some bigger events in their hometown Luxembourg City, among other events also for Ultraschall Collective.

  • Fabienne Gorges
    Villa Vauban
    "Coup de cœur" with Fabienne Gorges
    18H00 & 20H00

    Fabienne Gorges was born in Luxembourg. A student in psychology, she developed a liking for spoken word in the United States, where she joined a collective and learned the art of spoken word poetry from scratch. Among other things, she learned how important it is for text, voice, role and posture to be in tune if a spoken word performance is to be successful.

    Fabienne is a fresh and important voice in a fast-moving world that is currently undergoing dramatic changes.She stands for a young generation that is expected to take on several global crises at once: climate, war, pandemic. The young poet takes her audience on a highly emotional journey punctuated by bombastic rhymes and moving words.

     

  • John Constable’s English Landscapes
    Villa Vauban
    Guided tours of the exhibition 'John Constable’s English Landscapes. Masterpieces from the Tate Collection'
    17H15, 18H30 & 23H00 (FR) | 20H30 (LU/DE) | 22H30 & 24H00 (EN)

    John Constable (1776–1837) is one of England’s most celebrated painters. Together with J.M.W. Turner, with whom he shares a masterly use of colour shades to depict light, he contributed to the flourishing of 19th-century British landscape painting. Constable sought and found his motifs exclusively in his native environment, the county of Suffolk and the surroundings of Salisbury, Hampstead and Brighton. For his large-format paintings he made numerous sketches in the open countryside. Constable also influenced French Romanticism and the École de Barbizon.

     

  • Une promenade à travers l’art

    With more than 100 paintings and 14 sculptures, Villa Vauban’s permanent exhibition takes visitors on a journey through three centuries of artistic creation: from the 17th-century Netherlands to Italian dreamscapes and French painting around 1850. In addition to styles, art periods and numerous masterpieces, there are small formats and miniatures to discover, as well as the spectacular acquisitions of Jean-Pierre Pescatore, benefactor of the City of Luxembourg, on the occasion of the auction of King William II of the Netherlands’ collection in 1850. The great diversity of subjects and artistic styles is conveyed at the beginning of the tour in the form of an immersive video projection that transports visitors into the atmosphere of the paintings they will discover on their stroll through art.
