With Luxembourg as guest of honour at the CINEMANIA Festival, Kultur | lx and the Arts Council Luxembourg would like to invite you to visit the PHI Centre to discover other creative works from Luxembourg that combine music, performance and dance. 


A/V Performance | 33 minutes
By Andrea Mancini

In his project Minerals, Italian-Luxembourgish artist Andrea Mancini explores the fascinating world of minerals, their shifting forces, and their magnetic attraction for humans.


Concert | 40 minutes

C'est Karma is a young musician and activist from Luxembourg who doesn't hesitate to experiment with eclectic genres, sounds and visuals. Between hyperpop, alt-pop and noise influences, the 20-year-old presents her version of audacious pop. She talks about feminism, climate change or expresses her frustration with the inequality of the capitalist system.

Dance Performance | 30 minutes

This performance format was freely inspired by the play Art. 13. The original play has been broken down and reinvented in a hybrid format specially created and adapted for the PHI Centre. Here, the theme of migration merges with that of fashion; topics approached in a manner that is free of inhibitions, raw and impulsive. The entire performance is based on a fashion show.



Alongside the 28th edition of CINEMANIA, where Luxembourg is the guest of honour, the PHI Centre presents Up Close, a photo exhibition by Italian photographer and filmmaker based in Luxembourg Fabrizio Maltese, from November 2 to 30.

Images are all around us nowadays. The evolution of technology has made access to photography more democratic and thanks to electronic media, photos are more omnipresent than ever. In Up Close, Fabrizio Maltese attempts to revisit the codes and meaning of the celebrity images in this social-media age. These works will be an opportunity to ask questions about our relationship to the image and the portrayal of the self.
