"Heya Girls!"
The editorial garden will soon be declared a national park. No, I have not become a megalomaniac. I'm just taking part in a clever and charming initiative of GLOBAL 2000. Since the extinction of species is progressing more and more rapidly and we can only stop it if everyone helps, GLOBAL 2000 has created the "National Park Garden". The aim is to turn the country's gardens, balconies and windowsills into small and personal nature reserves, which together form a nationwide network of valuable habitats for bees, butterflies & co. Absolutely every area counts! If you want to help the "National Park Garden" grow, you can enter your area and upload a photo. All participants will then receive regular background information and tips on organic gardening. Since its launch last year, the "National Park Garden" has already grown to an area of over 2.5 million square metres. So: join in, ladies!
Wishing you a colourful week,
Your CitySpotterGirl

 Clara Luzia
Clara Luzia at Kultursalon Guckloch
This week again the currently hippest cultural event in the city is causing a sensation. The concept: a peep show, with a revolving platform, surrounded by 9 cabins, in which two people each look at the stage through a mirrored peephole. The location is Corona-compliant, the artists play unplugged on stage and visitors watch from the cabins – for 15 minutes each. Today the programme starts with the wonderful singer/songwriter Clara Luzia, who can be seen live much too rarely anyway. Afterwards, the Vaginas im Dirndl provide cheeky adult education.

Peepshow, Burggasse 112, 1070 Vienna. 11 June. From 19:00. 15 €. Web

We like: relaxed, local shopping! In a small, fine pop up on Gumpendorfer Strasse, ten designers have come together to bring the highlights from their current collections to customers. Among them are stylish Rumpel bags – upcycling bags made in Vienna from old material, racy patterned fashion by Edith Langer and jewellery art made of Bohemian glass beads by Susanne Gstettner. Stylish fashion also comes from Babs, backed by Viennese designer Barbara Holcmann and Cassandra Bahreman’s musterAG – real eye-catchers like everything here!

You can’t cancel Rock’n’Roll-Show
Slowly the local cultural scene is recovering and many initiatives announce their creative replacement programme: such as Nova Rock, Austria's biggest festival for headbangers. It won’t take place this year, but as a consolation there will be a livestream today. Four Austrian rock bands have announced their participation: the well-known dialect duo Seiler and Speer, the metal band Black Inhale, the punk rockers of Reverend Backflash and the Amadeus Award winners Kaiser Franz Joseph. That means: clear out your living room and rock along freely! Yeah!

Hula Dance from Hawaii
Friday needs some Aloha spirit! For the paradisiacal vibes, you can swing along with Sonja Gabriel today, who may not have diplomatic status, but has become a kind of Hawaiian ambassador of the hula dance. In her course, the modern version of the original, the Hula Auana, is danced. To the melodic, soft music, the stories of Hawaiian deities, people and nature are told with the whole body, but especially with the hands, through gentle movements. A complete choreography will be presented at each appointment.

Fotostudio Flea Market
Everyone who has ever moved before knows: when the boxes are slowly running out, you realise how much stuff you have accumulated. This is also true for the Trizeps photo studio, which after 40 years closes its location in Zollergasse and, without further ado, organises a flea market. Photography enthusiasts find some treasures here: backgrounds, studio lights, darkroom stuff and other professional equipment can be found. All kinds of curiosities, crockery and fabrics can be purchased from the props store – a lot has accumulated here. Plus drinks!

Weave, Baby, Weave!
Fate has done a good job arranging this: Ever since the day Gundula Hickisch rediscovered her mum's old weaving loom in the granary, she can't get away from the spindle. Meanwhile she has perfected the ancient craft, today she shows beginners the basics of picture weaving, changing colours and weaving forms. Great for all those who would like to be creative with their hands again for a day and want to take a small woven work of art home with them. The weaving is done outdoors in good weather, otherwise in a small group in the studio.

Stationentheater: Sehnsucht
We miss culture and culture misses us. Therefore, one of Vienna's most creative theatre groups – from Bronski & Grünberg – is organising a “station theatre” on the theme “Sehnsucht” (longing). Under the direction of Ruth Brauer-Kvam, little acts are performed at 3 locations in the theatre: her son Kyrre Kvam performs, there is a scenic reading and a Jacques Brel room for swaying to music. 10 people may listen and marvel while keeping enough distance. Yes, cultural events are finally happening again! We longed for that, too!

It doesn't get any more local than this: The city farmers can take the U-Bahn to the field ;-) Anyway, today on Sunday, the Kleine Stadtfarm is holding its monthly farmers' market with farmers and craftsmen from the region at the Gemeinschaftshof in Donaustadt. Besides fruit and vegetables, there is good honey and beeswax products directly from the field, juices, nectar and jams, mushroom products, organic wine and good stuff from the Mangalica pig. You can also eat on site – with homemade oriental specialties, or the allegedly best Steckerlfisch in town.

Cooking Course: Facciamo la pasta
You can't thank Marco Polo enough for bringing the delicious pasta from China to his native Italy. There, pasta was elevated to a specialty – and the cookbook authors Dario and Manuela Santangelo are letting you in on the secret of the perfect noodle today. The most important varieties such as tagliatelle, ravioli, gnocchi and more are freshly produced. Especially delicious: At the end of the meal, the pasta is served with classic Italian sauces, which have been specially prepared by the Santangelos. The course lasts five hours, followed by a joint dinner.

Corinne West
The songs have something subliminally mysterious about them: you instantly feel this in the music of Californian singer/songwriter Corinne West, a feeling that she awakens with her voice and the guitar sounds, in which a touch of mysticism and adventure always resonates. But that's not surprising for someone who, as a 15-year-old, travelled the country with a guitar in a converted school bus and studied mythology. West will give a live concert of her magical music tonight exclusively on the YouTube channel of Weltenklang. Listen in and be amazed.

Iridescent Iceland
Quite exciting when two artists have to share a canvas. The exhibition of the boutique gallery "Burn-In" merges painting and photography and sends visitors to "Iridescent Iceland" on a journey to the far north. Inspired by gigantic waterfalls, glaciers on black beaches, active volcanoes and spectacular northern lights, Johann Wimmer's black-and-white photographs, together with paintings by Linda Steinthorsdottir, create works of great depth. Enchanting landscapes, which become even more unreal through art.

Usually, the cooking spoons are swung at the Ankerbrotfabrik, but until that’s possible again, the intercultural cooking group from Community Cooking simply moves to the park. Every Tuesday from June onwards, picnics and gossiping will take place there, where everyone will gather and chat. You don't need anything but a picnic blanket and something to eat and drink, no need to register. The cooking friends are also looking for willing helpers for their community garden bed.

There must not be a ceremonial opening because of the Corona restrictions. However, the exhibition on the famous Austrian-American architect Raimund Abraham will be opened this evening, anyway. His spectacular new building of the Austrian Cultural Forum in New York is one of the most important contributions to contemporary architecture in Manhattan. Known for his playing with geometry, proportion and arithmetic, the exhibited drawings, models and prototypes show his visionary ideas for buildings and utopian city models.

You might not make it to Miami beach this year but you can still work on your beach body. Even if it’s just for Donauinsel. Every Wednesday, the MH76 gym in the Prater offers the right training. During the workout, the muscle groups are put under a lot of strain by using your own body weight, but also by dumbbells, kettlebells and super bands. There are different levels of difficulty for each exercise, so it is suitable for beginners and advanced users. It is essential to sign up in advance, the maximum number of participants able to do sports is nine.
