Next Week in Munich – Amalia Ulman, Gurdan Thomas & Opernfestspiele

We’re heading into the summer holidays in Munich, and after a few fantastic weeks, things are starting to cool off. Nonetheless, there are still a few great events lined up for next week:

The Opernfestspiele are on at the Staatsoper at the moment, and there are still some tickets available. New opera La Favorite (it premiered in October) is sold-out on Wednesday, but there are a few tickets available for its Saturday performance (11 € – standing). The Muffathalle is hosting Heinrich tanzt!, a choreographed performance by 120 school-kids from Munich on Wednesday and Thursday, and it sounds like a fun, family-friendly event.

On Tuesday, Instagram artist Amalia Ulman is holding a lecture in the Kunstverein. The Central Saint Martins graduate started a project called Excellences & Perfections in 2014. She started posting selfies, photos of her breasts bandaged after an enlargement op, photos of her attending pole dancing classes. She was trying to make it as an It Girl in LA. Except she wasn’t. It was all an act. The Telegraph called it an “Instagram masterpiece”. Now, she’s showing her current work at Deborah Schamoni, and the related presentation and performance AGENDA will be held on Tuesday in the Kunstverein.

Also on Tuesday, Miranda July’s The First Bad Man will be performed as a play at the Kammerspiele. It’ll be in German, but they have English surtitles. Brandy Butler is providing the music.

On Wednesday, Gurdan Thomas are back from their recent UK tour to perform at Milla with The Magic Mumble Jumble. They’ll be playing in Milla, and The Magic Mumble Jumble are such good fun – a proper hippy folk band.

Berlin’s Radio Citizen are also in Milla on Thursday. Tickets cost just 13 € on the door and the show starts at 8:30pm.

Finally, on Sunday, head to Milla for the third Go Sing Choir – Munich’s first open choir. I went to their last meet-up, and it was such good fun.
