For 18 days and nights, artists from North Rhine- Westphalia and every continent will turn the festival centre in the Gustaf-Gründgens-Platz into a public performance space: in the Weltfoyer they invite you to come and meet people and enjoy talks, sound sessions, films and discussions. The festival centre in the Schauspielhaus is open to the public at any time.
The Weltfoyer programme pays homage to the beginnings of art’s radical futurist movement. Düsseldorf was where the electronic music scene emerged during the 1970s and 80s and the city has enjoyed international renown as its creative centre ever since. The Weltfoyer offers a chance to make the diverse musical, filmic, performative and academic projects of these artists accessible to a wider audience. Theater der Welt 2021 will create a unique opportunity to experience the affinities between the electronic music scene and the worlds of performance and theatre arts up close.
The Weltfoyer programme will be guided by two strong artistic personalities: visual artist and musician Stefan Schneider from Düssel- dorf and Chris Bruckmayr, Curator of the Ars Electronica festival in Linz.
Tickets for all events in the Weltfoyer can be bought from the Düsseldorfer Schauspielhaus box office or online at www.theaterderwelt.de and www.dhaus.de
