Events in Styria: leisure tips for the weekend

September 23 and 24, 2022

Season opener at the playhouse: “Bunbury. Being serious is everything” is a fast-paced farce, “The Way Back” is a radical thought experiment.
Dandies Algernon and Jack lead double lives to escape their social obligations and live out their antics. Algernon invents an ailing friend named Bunbury, whom he visits in the country while Jack pretends to take care of his easy-going brother Ernst in the city. When Algernon shows up at the country estate in the role of Jack’s supposed brother, Ernst, the comic entanglements take their course… Claudia Bossard directs Wilde’s most famous comedy, Bunbury (“The Importance of Being Earnest”), which combines suppressed desire, seriousness and triviality, social roles and (double) standards.
The following day (September 24) the Austrian premiere of Dennis Kelly’s play “Der Weg zurück” (director: András Dömötör) can be seen.
Playhouse, Graz. September 23, 7:30 p.m. –

Sophistication instead of testosterone. Ronny Graupe is Jazz Germany’s new super guitarist (…), a natural phenomenon, a sound volcano, an instrumentalist who is not forgotten. Dangerous, agile, casual, rocking. Virtuoso to the max, but without all that testosterone stupidity that so many guitarists put off,” praised “Die Zeit” effusively. Graupe is now a guest in Graz with a quartet and the new CD “Off the Record”.
Floor, Jakominiplatz 18, Graz. September 23, 8 p.m.

The adventure day is the traditional highlight of the year and tells stories about the life, customs, work and festivals of our farming ancestors. A varied program with traditional handicrafts, customs, folk music, culinary delights and children’s stations offers insights into the everyday life of the rural population and into the farming work processes of the past. The traditional handicraft techniques are grouped according to subject areas and work processes. The program ranges from grinding in the historic mill, baking rolls, making brooms and rakes to making bobbins, fabric printing and carving, from soap making and Gschallerpopperln to turning, cooperage and making whips. The Heimatwerk and the Volksliedwerk are also on site. There is a free shuttle bus from the Gratwein-Gratkorn train station.
