The Ruhrtriennale 2021 will take place from 14 August to 25 September! Under the direction of artistic director Barbara Frey, the halls, coking plants, machine houses and slagheaps of the region's mining and steel industry will become distinctive protagonists for the festival. The programme is located at the interfaces of music theatre, drama, dance, performance, concert and visual arts.

The general conditions for planning the festival are constantly changing due to the ongoing Corona pandemic. To address this situation, we are planning the festival with comprehensive protective measures and in different varieties.
