Fragile – Festival for young changemakers


The first “FRAGILE – Festival for young changemakers” on the theme of sustainability took place at the Wuppertal Schauspielhaus and future Pina Bausch Centre from 20 September to 1 October 2023. It featured an exciting line-up of international dance, music and theatre productions, the GRUNCHY VILLA and the project Symbiosen by raumlaborberlin and Raul Walch. An accompanying programme of enriching “humus” events included the bicycle repair workshop Mirker Schrauba, lessons in how to build insect hotels and opportunities for upcycling.


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.
