The history of Bochum's Jahrhunderthalle began in 1903. At the heart of the cast steel company ›Bochumer Verein für Bergbau und Gußstahlfabrikation‹, a monumental steel construction was erected. For more than 60 years, the impressive hall with its 9.000 square meters, the so-called Gas Power Centre, supplied the plant and the urban settlement Stahlhausen with energy. In 2003 - exactly 100 years after its completion - the Jahrhunderthalle Bochum was handed over to its new destiny as a central festival theatre of the Ruhrtriennale and as an »assembly hall for art« (Gerard Mortier).
