Festival Perspectives

Perspectives is the only Franco-German stagecraft festival. It is held in May every year.

Plakat Perspectives 2017

In 2017, the festival will take place from 1st to 10th June.

About the festival

The festival presents contemporary, high-ranking German and French (début) performances in the fields of theatre, dancing, street theatre, circus and current music. In doing so, it is characterised by its orientation towards the audience and it roots in the city.

Since it was founded, the festival has been encouraging the theatregoers to discover new forms of theatrical experience, contemporary dancing and New Circus. PERSPECTIVES promotes, more than any other festival, the cultural exchange between Germany and France and invites visitors to discover new aspects of the stagecraft of the respective neighbouring country.
