In normal times, our large white theatre tent is located on the Burgplatz, directly on the Rhine. It is the heart of the festival. Dance, New Circus, theatre, and music from all over the world take place here in front of 900 visitors, this is where the heart and soul of the festival pulsates. The entire festival team of 70 member works from here. Technicians and hands, riggers, light and sound engineers. Ticketing, production, the cafeteria crew with many volunteers from Düsseldorf. The tent is a meeting point for the audience, artists, and staff. In a specially built container village, everyone who supports the festival together lives and works here for 6 weeks. Our red retro bar is also our foyer, here the audience and also the sponsors meet for a drink before and after the performances.
This year everything will be different. Due to the pandemic, parts of the tent program will be shown in cooperation with D. Live in the Mitsubishi Electric HALL. "The tiny tent" will be erected on the Burgplatz, where the art project Face to Face will take place with more than 40 local artists from the independent scene and right next to it will be a large nightly photo art object "Faces of Düsseldorf".
