The 56th edition of steirischer herbst festival turns to character-based storytelling to show how people navigate today’s moral gray zones and deal with the demons surrounding them.
This year, the festival brings together over forty works. Next to performances, the herbst cabaret, artist talks, and discussions, four exhibitions take visitors on a journey of discovery through the city and its history.
steirischer herbst ’23 opens with a performance by Lulu Obermayer on Schloßberg. On the first weekend, performances by Mateja Bučar, Adrienn Hód / HODWORKS, Michael Portnoy, and Giacomo Veronesi await the audience – all of which are new commissions.
The opening days of this year’s steirischer herbst begin at the highest point of central Graz, the Schloßberg, and create an imaginary topography of the city. Ceremonies continue with headline performances and discussions, and the exhibitions are open throughout. Come to Graz and be part of the festivities!
