Campustriennale – College, Masterclass and Exhibition

© Ruhrtriennale/Jana Mila Lippitz

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 “Zwischen Welten” (“Between Worlds”) supported by celebrated international artists. These are then presented in two long evenings of theatre on 17th and 18th September 2016. As part of the Exhibition project four young photographers will receive the unique opportunity to learn from two of the most important contemporary photographers Daniel Josefsohn and Julian Röder and to produce new works under the themes “BUDE BETT BARGELD” (HOME BED CASH) and “Licht unserer Tage” (Light of our Days) in the Ruhr area, which will be displayed during the festival and will also be published in a bilingual catalogue.

The Campustriennale discovers and encourages a new generations of theatre makers and artists.

You will find more information below and on the project pages.

Campustriennale College

The festival becomes a place to meet for students of 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.
