I’m usually not a big February fan. After January I’m sick of winter but February is still cold and uncomfortable. But after I checked out what events await us this February in Stuttgart, I am quite content that some fun packed weeks are in front of us.
- An event I can’t point out often enough is the Panorama and Full Moon Concert on top of the TV tower by Saloniker Stuttgart. The view from up there is great anyway. But enjoying it on a night with a full moon and listening to beautiful music is magical. This month the concert takes place on February 1.
- Enjoy art in silence. Picture Contemplation is a new series by Kunstmuseum Stuttgart that takes place every fortnight between 12:30 am and 1:15 pm, this month on February 1 and 15.
- I love this opera since I’ve seen it in Prague, in the theater where it celebrated its premier: Don Giovanni! But don’t worry, you don’t have to travel to Prague to enjoy this masterpiece (event though Prague is always worth a visit – but that’s a different story ;-)) as it will be shown at the opera in Stuttgart on February 2.
- You love literature and you speak or understand French? Then you shouldn’t miss the recitation about Un Secret by Philippe Grimbert at Stadtteilbücherrei Möhringen on February 2 and at Stadtteilbücherrei Zuffenhausen on February 6.
- Your wardrobe is stuffed but you still don’t find anything to wear? How about exchanging some old cloths for new ones? You can do so on February 3 at Fairtauscht, an event where you can exchange used cloths!
- Have you ever heard of a Song Slam? I haven’t before I checked the program of Merlin, the small theater in Stuttgart-West, but it sound like fun: Six brave singers and singer-songwriter battle each other on February 3. Every contestant has six minutes to convince the audience.
- A utopian journey into the world of music offers the festival ECLAT. Until February 4 you can meet new music trends, premiers and first performances from new composers and musicians from various fields: from new musical theatre and unusual chamber music projects to large-scale orchestral concerts.
- You love the royal family? Then the concert Chor for more – Royals in Hohenheim: William & Kate on February 4 will enchant you.
- NEAT, the New English American Theater, will bring a new play to town this February: The Vagina Monologues by Eve Ensler. You can enjoy this provoking play at Merlin on February 5, at Theater am Olgaeck on February 15 and at Kulturwerk at February 24.
- You want to meet new people and love to sing? Then don’t join the international choir at Schauspielhaus! They meet every Tuesday between 5 and 6 pm.
- You want to learn German and train your language skills while having fun? With Spielend Deutsch lernen at the city library you can do so on February 6, starting at 4 pm.
- The Jour Fixe du Cinéma Francais will show the movie Docteur Knock at Delphi on February 7– of course in the French original version and with German subtitles
- I just wanna fucking dance is the name of a performance that you can see between February 7 and 10 at Theater Rampe. The performance is inspired by peaceful protests, some of them will be shown on a screen. Sound’s like an fun and inspiring event!
- If you want to improve your German language skills you can join Frauenlesekreis at Stadtteilbibliothek on February 10.
- From former posts you might know that I LOVE Gauthier Dance Company (Eric Gauthier has organized the awesome dance festival colours for example). This February they will bring a new work to the stage: Bullshit! The work is inspired by African dance and music and an explosion of happiness. Exactly what we need on a grey February evening! 🙂 You can enjoy this show between February 20 and 24 at Theaterhaus.
- Shop for creative art, fashion, furniture and more at Kunst- und Desingmarkt Im Wizemann on February 23 and 24.
- Get to know new wines from the area on February 24 at Hotel am Schlossgarten. Four young and innovative winegrowers present two wines each at the Born to be wild winetasting.
- Written in 2009 by Jeannette Walls, Half broke horses has become a classic already. You can watch the story of the strong, spirited, and resourceful woman Lily who takes her life into her own two hands at Altes Schauspielhaus on February 26 and 27. The play will be performed in English by the American Drama Group.
Wow, what a month, right?! With so many fun events waiting for us this February in Stuttgart, it’s hard to decide which one to visit. What are your favorites?
