Dear audience,

Until 29 May you have the opportunity to receive a 15% discount on your ticket purchase. It applies to all productions of the Ruhrtriennale 2022, including the opening music theatre creation Ich geh unter lauter Schatten, which the artistic team around director Elisabeth Stöppler and conductor Peter Rundel has developed from various compositions especially for the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum. The title captures exactly what happens in this new work: People cross the threshold between life and death and enter a form of existence that does not end with the death of the body... The director provides insights into the creation here.

We would also like to recommend the premiere of Euphoria, the new, long-awaited film installation by Julian Rosefeldt, in which texts from 2,000 years of human greed flow into a space-consuming installation in the form of visually powerful film scenes. Rosefeldt already thrilled audiences (not only) at the Ruhrtriennale in 2016 with the work Manifesto.

Other productions also seem as if they were made exclusively for the region's former industrial halls: In Respublika by Polish star director Łukasz Twarkowski, film, acting, techno and visual art intertwine to create a world of its own. Explore it yourself in the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum, become part of it, or observe how new forms of living together are being tested.

Further information about the programme and your visit to the Ruhrtriennale can of course be found on our website.
