#hello_monaco weekend: what to do on January 20th and January 21st

This weekend in Monaco revolves around the circus with the return of the new edition of the circus festival. But it doesn’t stop here as there are plenty of other things you can do if you have free time.

And in the theatre this weekend you can see Les Frottements du Coeur (Frictions of the Heart) on Friday 19 and Saturday 20 at 8:00 p.m., Sunday January 21 at 4:30 p.m in Theatre des Muses.

Here is the real burning, funny and sensitive testimony of a young and brilliant actress, brutally excluded from the great march of the world.

The flu, what could be more commonplace? But the illness worsens, and the young woman is rushed to hospital. How to survive? How to return to the world? It’s a story of mountains to climb, fog to cross, resilience and love.

"Mon Ami La Fontaine"

And  on stage of the Variety Theatre there is “Mon Ami La Fontaine” this Saturday 20 January 2024, at 8:30 pm.

Of all the great minds of the 17th century, with whom Nicolas Fouquet surrounded himself and who would illuminate the reign of the Sun King Louis XIV himself, the foremost was perhaps Jean de la Fontaine. The writer of fables was also one of the boldest, in the face of a youthful monarch greedy for power, and the only one of those great minds to remain a faithful supporter of his friend, Fouquet, for whom he regularly petitioned the King for clemency, in vain.

Among many interesting exhibitions that are held in Monaco these days you can take a look at Hauser & Wirth Monaco that presents Mark Bradford’s ‘Nobody Knows the Trouble I’ve Seen’, from September 29 to February 10 a major new solo exhibition centered around a selection of paintings based on the historical tapestries known as ‘The Hunt of the Unicorn,’ first exhibited at the Fundação de Serralves in 2021. A site-specific wall painting that will wrap the entire gallery space and an adaptation of ‘He would see this country burn if he could be king of the ashes’ (2019) will complete an immersive experience that draws the viewer into Bradford’s ongoing engagement with the themes of predation, destruction and the hope of rejuvenation for those in crisis.
