Campustriennale – College, Masterclass and Exhibition

This is where tomorrow’s talented artists can meet. – The College is a way for students from all around the world to experience the Ruhrtriennale up close: by attending performances, artists’ discussions, several days of seminars and discussions. The Masterclass enables groups of young artists to realise their own creative visions as part of the festival. They will develop performances inspired by this year’s festival theme “Unter Welten” (“Under Worlds”) supported by celebrated international artists. These are then presented in two long evenings of theatre on 12th and 13th September 2015. As part of the Exhibition project empty shop-fronts are transformed into exhibition spaces. The series “Ausstellungsstück” (“Exhibition Piece”) presents installations by young artists in a series of cities across the Ruhr region. An artistic journey is created, which can be followed for the entire duration of the festival.

The Campustriennale discovers and encourages a new generations of theatre makers and artists.  Be there in the audience.  Or join in as one of the participants.

The festival becomes a place to meet for students at universities, theatre institutes and art schools in Germany and Europe. They take part in seminars and workshops, attend Ruhrtriennale productions and meet artists and facilitators for background discussions. They discuss, celebrate and discover the Ruhr region and exchange their own views about theatre, art and music. Dialogue about aesthetic, cultural and political issues is central. Diverse disciplines come together, different generations, nationalities, cultures and ideas. With this programme the Ruhrtriennale seeks to foster interdisciplinary exchange between prospective artists, academics and theatremakers and to contribute to the emergence of an international network of emerging artists.
