preview - WESTWIND 2023

WESTWIND 2023 - 11. to 17. June 2023

The 39th WESTWIND festival will be hosted by Theatre Marabu, Bonn

On the occasion of its 30th anniversary, Theater Marabu is hosting WESTWIND in Bonn from 11 to 17 June 2023 in cooperation with Theater Bonn, Beethoven Orchestra Bonn, Junges Theater Bonn and cultural center Brotfabrik.

Back in 2013, Theater Marabu welcomed the festival in cooperation with several Bonn institutions, including Theater Bonn, Kulturzentrum Brotfabrik and Theater im Ballsaal. In 2023, this network will continue to develop and expand, particularly due to the recent foundation of the “Bonn Initiative Theatre and Music for Young Audiences” in 2021. Here, Junges Theater Bonn, PORTAL (the platform of Theater Bonn and Beethoven Orchestra Bonn) and Theatre Marabu have teamed up to generate more awareness for artistic offerings for young audiences in Bonn.

Visitors can expect a multifaceted and high-quality programme presented at local Bonn venues. Community involvement will be high in the run-up to the festival, as there will be cooperations with schools, kindergartens, youth institutions, family centres and other partner organisations prior to the festival week. The programme specially developed for this purpose will serve to sensitise children and young people to the special guest performances, to prepare them thematically, to engage the urban community in cross-generational dialogue with visiting theatres and to enable people of all generations access to arts and culture.

We look forward to the theatre convention AND audience festival WESTWIND 2023!
