Der kleine Prinz
Event on 2014-12-16 00:00:00

Die Erfolgsinszenierung des Klassikers durch die drehbühne berlin wird 10 und kehrt zur 7. Spielzeit in den Admiralspalast zurück. Bisher sahen über 100.000 Zuschauer von Flensburg bis Zürich die Produktion und haben dabei gleichzeitig ein UNICEF-Projekt im Sudan unterstützt. Jeweils 2 EUR jeder Karte kommen UNICEF zugute.

Von der Bühne aus begegnet der kleine Prinz den Sternenbewohnern auf der Leinwand, die dadurch nah und doch unerreichbar fern sind.

So ist Bruno Ganz als Geograph zu erleben, Horst Krause als Säufer, Florian Lukas als Laternenanzünder, Dieter Mann als Geschäftsmann, Michael Mendl als König und Armin Rohde als Eitler.

Bitte beachten Sie, dass die hier aufgeführten Schauspieler nicht live auf der Bühne stehen, sondern als Filmeinspieler zu sehen sind!

Auf der Bühne selbst verhilft der kleine Prinz (Nanda Ben Chaabane / Ina Gercke) dem in der Wüste abgestürzten Fliegerpiloten (Lorenz Chr. Köhler / Tobias Schulze), die Einsamkeit der Wüste zu überleben. Zudem gibt es eine Schlange, Geier, eine Ratte und natürlich den Fuchs, die durch Puppenspieler zum Leben erweckt werden (Nicole Kehrberger, Michele Andrei). Die arabisch-orientalische Livemusik macht eine weitere Besonderheit des Theatererlebnisses aus (Kompos.: A.Volkmann / M. Hamann).

Regie führte der Schauspieler und Regisseur Lorenz Christian Köhler.
Freuen Sie sich auf eine zauberhafte Inszenierung für große und kleine Leute (ab 8).

DAN BAIRD & HOMEMADE SIN

Thursday, October 16th, 2014

DAN BAIRD & HOMEMADE SIN
Event on 2014-11-30 20:00:00

Old Flat Top presents:
DAN BAIRD & HOMEMADE SIN

On Stage 9pm – No support

The Georgia Satellites were one of the most ferocious bands of the 80’sand what set them apart from the other 10,000 groups who cranked their amps up to 11 was that their wild riffs and tanked cries came from a band that, from the start, understood it’s place in rock tradition and fought hard to solidify it with each recording.

The story starts in the early 80’s at Hedgen’s, a “country club for the spiritually impoverished and emotionally destitute” , as chief songwriter Baird would later identify it. Bassist Keith Christopher, Drummer Mauro Magellan and Guitarists Rick Richards and Dan Baird were playing on the Atlanta circuit in various bar bands such as the Hellhounds, the Brains and the Woodpeckers. These bands would gradually morph into the original Georgia Satellites.

#1 fan and road manager Kevin Jennings, sold an EP of early Satellites recordings to an independent UK record label, Making Waves and the EP, Keep The Faith, provoked an extraordinary reaction from the UK music press, which, in turn, woke up the previously indifferent stateside music industry. The stand-out track on the EP and most peoples introduction to the band was Keep Your Hands To Yourself which was swiftly culled from the bands eponymous debut major label release on Elektra and became a runaway grammy nominated hit, both LP and single only being kept off the respective #1 slot’s by Bon Jovi’s Slippery When Wet and Living On A Prayer. A second hit single, Battleship Chains, solidified the LP’s platinum success.

Where the Satellites really earned their reputation though, was with their live shows. All those years of three sets a night, paid dividends as their live performances laid waste to audiences across the States and in particular Europe, which took the band to it’s collective heart, a love affair that continues to this day.

Two more Elektra LP’s, Open All Night and the remarkable Salvation And Sin, plus a track, Hippy Hippy Shake, on the Tom Cruise movie soundtrack, Cocktail, followed, but by the early 90’s, all those years of incessant touring had taken their toll and the band split.
Dan Baird forged a successful solo career with Rick Rubin’s Def American, scoring major hits with the album Love Songs For The Hearing Impaired and single I Love You Period. A second LP, the critically acclaimed Buffalo Nickel, followed and Dan also developed a career as a highly sought after producer.

Post Satellites Mauro played on both of Dan’s Def American albums before taking time out to raise a family and concentrate on his other interests. Keith had also returned to the fold for the Def American recordings and like Mauro played on both ‘Love Songs For The Hearing Impaired’ and ‘Buffalo Nickel’. After recording ‘Buffalo Nickel’, Keith went on to join Kenny Wayne Sheppard’s band and play on a multitude of sessions, including Ayo’s 2006 double platinum debut Joyful.

In 2001 Dan returned to live performance, with the Sofa Kings, a band that featured hot shot guitarist Ken McMahan. The shows producing the live album, Redneck Savant. Dan also found time to record and tour as part of the alt “supergroup”, The Yayhoos who also featured Keith Christopher and long time Dan sparring partner Terry Anderson. The Yayhoos line up is completed by Eric “Roscoe” Ambel. The foursome have released two albums to date, Fear Not The Obvious in 2002, following it in 2007 with Put The Hammer Down.
2003 saw the release of a compilation of Dan and Georgia Satellites unreleased gems – Out Of Mothballs – and Mauro put out an album with his other band The Crashers – Love School. Dan, Keith, Mauro and Ken hit the road for the first of a sucession of tours which were documented on the 2005 double live set – Feels So Good.

In 2007 the band decided to take some time off to concentrate on writing and to recharge their batteries. During this period, Ken had his first child and decided to spend some time at home. His legacy and importance to the band are stamped all over the live cd and dvd set – Fresh Out Of Georgia – which will stand as a worthy testament to his time with the band.

His replacement is none other than Warner E. Hodges, also guitarist extrodinaire with Nashville legends, Jason And The Scorchers. Warner is probably the only guitarist capable of matching Dan’s intensity chord for chord and proved to be the missing piece in the Homemade Sin jigsaw. Long term friends, Dan had co-produced Warner’s 2007 debut solo album – Centerline.

February 2008, Dan, Warner, Mauro and Keith embarked upon the recording of Homemade Sin’s debut studio album. Recorded in Nashville the fourteen tracks on ‘Dan Baird & Homemade Sin’ represent the first new Dan Baird studio album since ‘Buffalo Nickel’.

The album was released in Europe in May 2008 to rave reviews and was playlisted by BBC Radio 2′s Bob Harris, an American release scheduled for 2009. Live audiences got to hear the new songs for the first time when Homemade Sin, joined the Quireboys on a highly successful package tour of the U.K. and Scandinavia. The band were back in Scandinavia once again in October with one veteran (and by all accounts highly jaded) music journalist giving the band a SIX out of FIVE star review and proclaiming the show to be the best gig he’d seen in over twenty years!

Can you give me an amen?

There is compelling evidence that how parents get on – or don’t get on – influences children’s lives. How parents interact effects the health and wellbeing of the family and the quality of relationships, including those between parent and child. 

The award winning programme How to Argue Better: A Resource for Working with Parents in Conflict is a resource for working with the tricky and emotive topic of conflict in family settings. It will help you support mothers, fathers and others in a parenting role to deal with conflict, whether they are married, cohabiting, in civil partnerships, or separated. This 1 day workshop and online module will give you knowledge and understanding of parental conflict and its impact on children and provide you with the resources to help parents to manage conflict better thus having a positive otucome for children. The emphasis is on early intervention and prevention of relationship distress.

Research has found that when people experience relationship problems they are most likely to turn to a friend, colleague or support worker for help. The course will help you work with parents individually or in groups.

How will the training help in your role as a Mental Health Professional:

  • Understand conflict in relationships and its causes
  • Recognise different types of conflict and how people respond differently
  • Understand the impact of conflict on children
  • Provide you with a tool kit to help you work with individuals, couples or group participants so that they can deal with conflict in ways that reduce harmful effects on their children
  • Apply learning about conflict to any relationship, not just familial 

Skills you can expect to develop:

  • Active listening
  • Raising parents' awareness of the impact of conflict on their children
  • Developing parents' understanding of the difference between destructive and constructive conflict
  • Helping parents' to develop skills to minimise destructive conflict and handle conflict more constructively 
  • Promoting effective parenting skills
  • Increasing understanding of the protective factors that strengthen relationships
  • Signposting to relevant support  

Course details:

A Blended Learning Approach – interactive e-learning module "Understanding Conflict in Relationships" followed by a one day facilitated skills-based workshop delivered by two Ag Éisteacht trainers. 

"An excellent day of learning with lots of 'light-bulb' moments. The materials are extremely well put together and the tools can be used easily with parents. I especially liked how the tools can be used regardless of where people are in their relationships; together or separated, learning how to argue better can only help parents in the challenges of raising their children” Paula Lonergan Director of Professional Development One Family

Lunch & refreshments included in fee. Resource pack including participant manual & DVD. 
Certificate on completion of the workshop and eLearning module. For practitioners requiring evidence of Continuing Professional Development, the Certificate of Completion will state the number of hours' attendance.

Family relationships have "deep and enduring effects" on children's wellbeing (Family Support Agency, 2013) and a central function of children's services is to support and complement the many ways in which the immediate family protects and cares for their children (HSE, 2007).

The quality of the relationship between parents has been highlighted as an important aspect of family well-being (McKeown et.al 2003). Parental conflict is widely identified as a negative influence on many aspects of child development with impacts on children's behavioural, emotional, social, academic, and health outcomes (Cummings & Schatz. 2012).
