1. Offenbacher Seefestspiele
Thu. 06. — Sun. 09.07.2017

Wastelands, puddles, concrete, wood, four weeks to prepare and seven artists attending – these are the ingredients of the 1. Offenbacher Seefestspiele. The YRD.Works collective transforms the contested Offenbach harbour into a utopian space with a four-piece series performed in a hybrid mix of water basin, walk-in sculpture and stage. Artistic accomplices: the music duo Les Trucs – best known for DIY experimental electronic devices, choir sounds, motors and other acoustic ready-mades – and the contact Gonzo collective, shocking audiences from New York to Tokyo with their playfully breakneck performances. Together, they uncover the fantastic potential lying dormant under the harbour.

Installation/ Performance/ Music*German, English, Japanese*By and with: contact Gonzo (Takuya Matsumi, Keigo Mikajiri, Yuya Tsukahara, NAZE), Les Trucs (Charlotte Simon, Zink Tonsur), YRD.Works (David Bausch, Yacin Boudalfa, Ruben Fischer)
