Pop meets avant-garde at the International Summer Festival at Kampnagel. Artists* from all over the world bring theatre, dance, performances, concerts and parties to the stages of the former crane factory with Hamburg's most beautiful temporary beer garden.
For three weeks international artists from all over the world present a mixture of theatre, dance, puppetry, musical, family theatre and music. Regular visitors to the summer festival have known for a long time that the artists at the summer festival do not allow themselves to be fixed to a single genre, let alone to a single form of performance. And this year, too, there will be creative performances to marvel at which one can hardly imagine in advance. In 2020, the International Summer Festival will once again be a great success and promises a wide range of cultural pleasures.
Further information about the International Summer Festival at Kampnagel 2020 and the programme will be available here soon.
Review: Program 2019 - Dystopia, Climate Change, Insects and our Future
Various scientists, authors and artists of all kinds came together at Kampnagel to discuss climate change. David Foster Wallace, author of the book "The Uninhabitable Earth", spoke about facts and scientific hypotheses at a conference and Mark Peranson, head of the Berlinale programme, dedicated a film series to the topic. With "Something (out of nothing)", Kris Verdonck showed a trip to the edge of the world on stage in a synaesthetic and powerful way. The live report 3GRADPLUS showed us what will happen if we continue as before. But also topics like growing up, music of every imaginable genre, the diversity of queer life, dance, theatre and much more were on the programme.
