Now online: digital course through the Ruhrtriennale 2018 - 2020
With a multitude of digital contributions from the Ruhrtriennale 2018 and 2019 program, artistic director Stefanie Carp and her team bid farewell on October 31st, 2020. With the "Archive of Events 2018 and 2019" and more than 60 trailers, interviews, video messages, podcasts and other previously unpublished material, we look back on the listed productions of recent years. The complete recordings of Christoph Marthaler's Bekannte Gefühle, Gemischter Gesichter as well as William Kentridge's The Head & the Load complete the offer.
Supplemented by the "Archive of Lost Events 2020" on the occasion of this year's festival, which was cancelled due to Corona, the Ruhrtriennale invites you to a digital tour until October 31st at editionen.ruhrtriennale.de.
Among the programmatic highlights recalled by the "Archive of Lost Events" is a look at artistic voices from the global south, including Olu Oguibe and Serge Aimé Coulibaly. Continuity is also assured in the collaboration with a large number of artists and their artistic development, such as Christoph Marthaler and his moving Universe, Incomplete (2018) with Kornél Mundruczó and his impressive triptych Evolution (2019).
In addition to the impressive industrial halls, the contributions also put new venues in the spotlight, including the Audimax of the Ruhr Universität Bochum for Christoph Marthaler's Nach den letzten Tagen. Ein Spätabend (2019) or Dortmund's Nordstadt with Schorsch Kameruns Nordstadt Phantasien (2018). There are impressions of walk-in productions, including Diamante (2018) by the theater-maker Mariano Pensotti and Exodos (2019) by choreographer Sasha Waltz. Images and statements by the collective raumlaborberlin on Third Space (2018 - 2020) and the installation Bergamo Stereo (2019) by musician Cevdet Erek round off the collection of artistic perspectives on current issues.
The Ruhrtriennale has been taking place since 2002 under a director who changes every three years. Every year, international contemporary artists at the intersection of music theater, drama, dance, performance, and the visual arts are invited to perform at the festival in the monumental industrial architecture of the Ruhr metropolis.
The Ruhrtriennale 2021 - 2023 is directed by the theater director Barbara Frey.
