At the same time, advance ticket sales for the annual Festival of the Arts begin.

From 14 August to 25 September, the Festival of the Arts will present a programme at the intersection of music theatre, concert, drama, dance, performance, literature and visual arts. The productions can be experienced at nine venues in the Ruhr region.

This first edition of the Ruhrtriennale under the artistic direction of Swiss theatre director Barbara Frey aims to interrogate contemporary fault lines, unsettled historical constructions of identity, collective and individual memory processes, and the complex relationship between humans and nature.

The entire programme can now be discovered on the Ruhrtriennale's new website.

Get your tickets online and benefit from the early bird discount of 15% until June 27.

We hope you enjoy exploring the programme!
