Ruhrtriennale Festival of the Arts
Bochum, Germany

This year’s Ruhrtriennale – the festival of the arts – takes place from August 10 to September 23, 2023. Under the artistic direction of Swiss theatre director Barbara Frey, halls, coking plants, machine houses and slagheaps of the mining and steel industries become distinctive protagonists for the festival. The program is located at the intersection of musical theatre, drama, dance, performances, concerts, installations and visual arts.

The festival catalogue with more than 200 pages of the Ruhrtriennale 2023 informs about the productions and artists of this year’s festival edition. Supplemented by the photo section of the documentary film duo loekenfranke as well as a magazine section with essays, artist:inside portraits and interviews, the festival catalog offers a comprehensive insight into the program of the Ruhrtriennale.
