KunstFestSpiele Tag

The KunstFestSpiele invite you and your whole family to an enjoyable and inspiring Sunday with art and good food, to the KunstFestSpiele Day on 22 May.
From 2 pm onward we present a wide-ranging programme for all ages of 4 and up, a compact one-day version of the festival. In and around the Herrenhausen Gardens we show productions and concerts for the minimal price of 5 Euro per event. In between you can visit the installations for free.

We welcome you with coffee and cake or a meal and drinks in the festival tent at the entrance to the Herrenhausen Gardens. The artistic programme runs from 2 to 11 p.m. Your day ticket also gives you free entry to the Herrenhausen Gardens.

The programme:

In the Orangerie the Dutch company De Dansers shows Löffelchen Löffelchen, a piece about trust and closeness for children and adults of 4 and over. In the entrancing No Tomorrow the Iceland Dance Company explores the significance of music and dance in growing up. The choreography is by the star visual artist Ragnar Kjartansson, and by Margret Bjarnadottir, the music by Bryce Dessner (The National). In the Gartentheater, Moritz Ostruschnjak presents his Tanzanweisungen (Dance Instructions), a tremendous solo mixing clog-dancing, ballet and hip hop. The Canadian Ula Sickle and her 6 performers examine the power of protest and solidarity in Relay, a ‘durational performance’ in and in front of the Galerie in which you can come and go as you like for six hours. Feinkost Lampe presents two concerts by Sinfonia de Carnaval in the garden. In the evening the virtuoso experimental vocalist Sofia Jernberg gives a concert in the Galerie, and Andrea Bozic and Julia Willms invite you to an immersive experience in their audio-visual installation Looking-Glass House in the Arne Jacobsen Foyer.           

The performances usually last 30 minutes and are easy to combine.
