The first ever “FRAGILE – Festival for young changemakers” international Youth DanceMusicTheatre Festival
on the theme of sustainability will take place in Wuppertal from 20 September to 1 October 2023.

The festival:
FRAGILE presents eight exciting productions from six countries – for young people and for an intergenerational audience. How can the stage become a field of experimentation for sustainable practices? What special powers do different formats – from dance to performance, workshops to debates, seeing dance and dancing yourself – have in fostering global empathy? In view of our current challenges, empathy is needed now more than ever!

The procect

The theatre by the Wupper that used to be the city’s main Schauspielhaus will become the Pina Bausch Centre. The new centre aims to be more than just a place of conservation where a great artistic oeuvre of international standing is cultivated. It will knit together recollection, experimentation, creativity, knowledge transfer, reflection and participation. A new extension will be built as part of the renovation of the Schauspielhaus, for which an architectural competition has been announced.
