Where Do You Wanna Go Today
All the ingredients for great entertainment are there: a little drama, a dash of irony, plenty of songs, some art. But there is something else to this performance, and the solo figure, PRICE, a fictional character created by Mathias Ringgenberg, hints at this in all its depth. At mumok, as part of the ImPulsTanz festival.
It’s that time of year again: The musicians Sea Urchin and Jung An Tagen will play at Karlsplatz. At night, Femme DMC invites you to Club Roxy with a full cast of DJs. Free admission!
