KunstFestSpiele Tag

On KunstFestSpiele Tag we invite families, children and anyone interested in the arts to spend a day exploring them. You can experience outstanding art and inspiring entertainment. It’s the KunstFestSpiele in a nutshell: music, dance, theatre, installations and performances tailor-made for the wonderful venues in Herrenhausen and the public spaces of Nordstadt: boundary-pushing, unforgettable work.


Sun 04.10. — 14:00 until 23:00
Orangerie / Galerie / Arne Jacobsen Foyer / Ehrenhof / Gartentheater / DHC-Gelände / Herrenhäuser Allee

Price 5 €*

*Free admission for Plantkingdom. Fremde Welten. IV: no border plants 

We have invited international artists to take over the festival arena from Herrenhäuser Alle to the DHC area via the Galerie, Orangerie and the festival tent. The KnstFestSpiele Tag programme features the Spanish dancers of the Cia. Vero Cendoya, who combine dance and football in their own special way, and Claron McFadden, who embarks on a musical and culinary journey through the Mediterranean region in Nightshade: Aubergine. The Suroor-Kollektiv merge East and West in a musical journey through time, and the Top Dog Brass Band presents a jazzy concert in the Gartentheater. Claron McFadden leads you on a musically-culinary journey along the Mediterranean Sea. In no border plants a greenhouse is set in motion, Feinkost Lampe presents Hayden Thorpe in the Festivalzelt and for very young children the Theater o.N. magics a laboratory of sounds and objects. Food is served throughout the day by freitagsküche in the festival tent, with an outdoor barbeque in the evening.
The installation Analemma, by the Japanese artist Yasuhiro Chida, will be open in the Arne Jacobsen Foyer in the evening, and then you can experience one of the absolute highlights of this year’s KunstFestSpiele: the fantastic laser-and-sound installation Fountain Scan, by Robert Henke, at the Great Fountain.
