NEUER TERMIN / NEW DATE: 3.-6. Juni 2021

(postponed from October 2020)

A weekend between Charles Baudelaire, Carl Maria von Weber and Lewis Carroll, between the veneration of Mary, Tricksters and wise men‘s Ascension, between collective history, personal memories and intimate moments – a weekend with over 10 productions. Westfluegel organizes its first showcase and brings together a wide variety of works by artists who are closely connected to the house. In addition to the numerous full-length productions, there is a diverse supporting program with smaller works, concerts, discussions and insights into the work of Westfluegel and the international ensemble as well as some Leipzig sightseeing. In doing so, a ribbon is threaded from the first premiere, which was created in Westfluegel in 2006, through to current projects. All productions are performed in English. The showcase will start on Thursday in the afternoon and end Sunday night.

Westfluegel is an international production center for modern puppetry, object and visual theatre closely linked to the national and international theater scene. Westfluegel’s historically protected art nouveau building has held theater performances since 2003, as well as ball nights, modern dance performances, concerts, exhibitions and more, the focus being on puppetry and visual theatre. – Feel free to reach out, if you are interested to join and want to be updated about the program. For professionals, festival organisers, journalists or other experts there will be special events and possibilities to fund some of the expenses.
