Festivalcampus Niedersachsen

Thu 23.05. - Sun 26.05.

Fifty students of music, theatre and art from five universities in Lower Saxony come to Hanover for the KunstFestSpiele. They visit festival events, interchange with the artists, and discuss the performances in seminars and workshops.

Thanks to the generous support of the Niedersachsen Foundation, the KunstFestSpiele are not only continuing their campus programme, successfully started last year, as the Festivalcampus Niedersachsen 2019, but are also linking up with the Festival Theaterformen to extend the campus. So once again the participating students can gain experience and enter into artistic debates that are rarely possible in university seminar rooms or academy studios.

Campus participants are the scientists and artists of tomorrow: from Hanover, Lüneburg, Braunschweig and Hildesheim; from the areas of theatre and cultural studies, scenography, art, performance and composition. Lecturers from various disciplines open up new perspectives for the students, directing their attention outside the box of their own particular subject. Through jointly attended performances, seminars and discussions with artists, the two festivals, KunstFestSpiele and Theaterformen, provide future cultural practitioners with a space for intensive interchange and critical reflection – the basis for lively, socially relevant and forward-looking artistic and cultural work.
