The KunstFestSpiele celebrate their birthday

Installations, performances, concerts and shows with free admission

The KunstFestSpiele Herrenhausen invite you to their tenth birthday with free entry. Join us with your friends, children and relatives on the first festival Sunday for an all-day celebration of the arts. You can experience everything that distinguishes the KunstFestSpiele: theatre and music, film, dance and performance, tailor-made to the wonderful locations in Herrenhausen, lasting artistic impressions pushing boundaries and defying categories.

The programme on this 12th of May has been devised by the invited international artists. Between 2 p.m. and midnight they fill the entire area between the Palace, Galerie and Orangerie, and also make their way from the Nordstadt via Herrenhäuser Allee to the festival grounds. This tenth-anniversary celebration will be a day for both newcomers and aficionados, a day of unexpected encounters, a celebration for all Hanoverians and national and international guests.

Celebrating with us are artists such as the Austrian performance group Cie. Willi Dorner, the New York dance and performance legend Sylvia Palacios Whitman, who is appearing in Germany for the first time, the Belgian performance artist Louis Vanhaverbeke and the Lebanese sound artist Tarek Atoui, with a very special inclusive project for which the KunstFestSpiele are cooperating with Hörregion Hannover. Feinkost Lampe hosts the club musician Aron Ottignon in the festival tent, and Jocelyn B. Smith, the great soul and jazz singer brings her band to the Gartentheater.

The full programme, with all the contributing artists and detailed times, will be published in March 2019.

By and with Tarek Atoui / Cie. Willi Dorner / Sylvia Palacio Whitman / Louis Vanhaverbeke / Jocelyn B. Smith / Aron Ottignon / and many more
