Spectacular production Bounce must be cancelled

It is with great disappointment that we have to cancel the performances of Bounce on the Rhine meadows in Oberkassel. During the world premiere in Madrid, construction deficiencies were discovered during the erection of the inflatable structure that fundamentally call its operation into question. These deficiencies were caused by a lack of control mechanisms on the part of the manufacturing company due to the Covid pandemic. Together with Circa and our two international co-production partners Zürcher Theaterspektakel and the Festival Noorderzon in Groningen, we deeply regret this development. For all of us, an important spectacular act of the festival is missing, which should primarily motivate families with children to new activity with fun and games after this long Pandemic thirst. All tickets already purchased can be refunded directly at the respective seller (Düsseldorf Festival, Westticket, advance booking office) from Monday 19.7.2021.
