| ||Film: Three Identical Strangers|
This acclaimed documentary tells the incredible true story of three strangers reunited by astonishing coincidence after being born identical triplets, separated at birth, and adopted by three different families.
The brothers forge a relationship and become fast friends. They move in together in a swinging bachelor pad and open a restaurant that skyrockets to success. The toast of Manhattan, the triplets are living the high life. But their fairy-tale reunion sets off a chain of events that ultimately unearths an extraordinary and sinister secret that could answer controversial questions at the heart of human behaviour.

| ||Film / Lecture: Mirai|
Heart-warming anime about a 4-year-old boy who makes a magical journey through the borders of time and space.
When Kun gets to know his newborn sister Mirai (meaning 'future' in Japanese), he is at first very happy with her presence. His parents' attention, however, increasingly goes to Mirai, and Kun quickly feels lost and excluded. He is furious. A magical time travel port in his backyard turns out to be an escape route. Kun travels through time and meets several family members, including Mirai, now a teenager. Together they embark on a magical journey that leads to great discoveries about their impressive family history.
On Thursday 16 May the film will be screened with English subtitled, followed by a lecture given by Maarten van Gageldonk, lead programmer at the KLIK Amsterdam Animation Festival.

| ||Music: Nikolaas Kende|
Nikolaas Kende is called poet to the fingertips, raised in Antwerp as the son of the well-known Hungarian pianist Levente Kende and his fold and duo partner Heidi Hendrickx. He himself forms a much-vaunted duo with violinist Jolente De Maeyer. As one of his most difficult sonatas, Beethoven’s Waldstein requires not only poetry but also complete technical control. In his so-called Gastein Sonata, Schubert evokes the vast landscape of the Alps.

| ||Dance: The Little Great People|
In 2013, Pokorný made a big impression with two consecutive pieces for the Korzo-NDT programme Up & Coming Choreographers. And now he has created his first evening-filling production for Dutch theatres. Pokorný’s performances are characterised by inventiveness and virtuoso movement language. The Little Great People consists of three separate duets, inspired by the contradictions that exist in human nature. Each duet is dedicated to a different field of contradictions.

| ||Music: Café Zimmermann|
In 1729, Bach was in charge of the Leipziger Collegium Musicum. With this urban music group of students and professional musicians, founded by Georg Philipp Telemann, Bach gave concerts at the Zimmermannsche Kaffeehaus every Friday evening. Gottfried Zimmermann, the owner of the fashionable coffee house, did not ask the musicians for rent and the public had free access. He earned enough from selling coffee. Bach performed his Kaffee Kantate here as well as his violin concertos and work by fellow composers Händel and Telemann. This colourful music selection has been brought together in Café Zimmermann.

| ||Lecture: Life and Work of a LGBTI Activist and Human Rights Defender in Kenya|
Kenya is currently at a crossroad. On the one hand LGBTI organisations have become more visible and are increasingly recognised by state institutions. At the same time, there is a rising tension within the government and public domain on issues concerning LGBTI. According to a report published by GALCK (Gay and Lesbian Coalition of Kenya), the LGBTI community continues to face direct acts of violence, social stigmatisation and isolation. During this lecture, Vincent will talk about his life as an LGBTI activist and his work as a Policy and Advocacy Programme Officer in Kenya.
Tuesday 21 May | 7.30 p.m. | Karl Dittrich Hall, Student Services Centre Bonnefantenstraat 2
