FAVORITEN Festival 2018
Every two years, Favoriten shows current theater, dance and performance works from North Rhine–Westphalia’s independent scene. In the process, the Dortmund festival re-invents itself every time: finds new venues in the city, builds new relationships and places other accents.
A public debate about cultural models, clear missions and categories surrounds us. But how can one develop a festival program or artistic work ‘without a model’ – against given definitions andrepressive attributions?
The 18 positions in the program resist established expectations! In aesthetic experiments, they conquer new genres and political spheres of action. We offer you a heartfelt invitation to eleven festival days!
