1. Stand-up Comedy from Scotland
Have a great night full of laughter at Victoria Cinema this week! Daniel Sloss is coming for the first time in Transylvania with his funny and entertaining show full of Scottish irony. It takes place on November 3 from 20:00 and is part of the well-known Comedy Weekend series.
2. City walk with a twist
The German cultural Center of Cluj invites you to come to Mănăștur for a special guided tour. Lala Panait, resident and cultural activist, is going to show you around and tell you everything she knows about the district and its history. Find hidden places and discuss about chances as well as challenges for the presence and future of Mănăștur, a district where more than one third of Cluj’s citizens live. The tour will be held in Romanian. Check it out here.
3. Tea at the circle of friends
“Be it tea or food, „chill out” or „hang out”, anyone who enters Samsara will surely come back because Samsara is a circle. A circle of friends.” – Visit Samsara Teahouse this week, one of the most extraordinary cafes/bars in Cluj. Chill out in a very special atmosphere drinking tea and eating lemon cookies with honey and listen to some nice music. Inside the bar looks somehow alternative and oriental. Don’t miss to see their trippy room that seduces you to another world!
4. Phone photography
Visit the interactive exhibition about Romania’s daily life! Though uncommon, this is a pretty convincing exposition. All the photos are taken with a mobile phone presenting the “Daily Life in Romania”. The exhibition was initiated by Andreea Câmpeanu, a Romanian photojournalist in collaboration with Roxi Pop, a Romanian photographer. Choose the best ones to be part of the final exhibition that will take place at the teahouse Carturesti bookshop in Iulius Mall. Share your vision about the country and choose the photos representing the best of Romania! Read more about the event on facebook.
5. Bankruptcy – and what next?
Romania’s a place of bankruptcy you say? Bankruptcy is over, a new chapter started? Colectiv A Cluj presents Temps d’Images festival 2016, a week full of theatre, dance and videos, talking about the failure of a way of functioning, about the impossibility of making the changes we want and about acknowledging the exhaustion of resources. The theme will be approached together with guest artists to provoke imagination. Start with the theatre play “Open” scheduled for November 7th at Fabrica de Pensule. Or how about Farid Fairuz’ performance “That panda over there, wearing pants, is a holobiont!” thursday next week? For more details and the full programm visit facebook or their website.
