About the Transeuropa festival

Transeuropa is a European festival of performative arts established in 1994. The 8th edition will take place from 27.05. – 01.06.2015 in Hildesheim, Germany. The aim of transeuropa is to support young performing artists in their artistic work.

The festival team, consisting of theatre students from Hildesheim, searches for an intensive collaboration with artists and art-collectives. The central part of the next festival will be a two-day transdisciplinary congress dealing with current and future conditions of work and labour in the arts and beyond. All people involved in the festival - artists, audience, festival team - are invited to participate in this program.
