There's no better way to observe the Ruhr region's transformation from industrial centre to cultural hub than at the Ruhrtriennale. Music, theatre, literature and dance have colonised the space where chimneys once smoked and blast furnaces sent red light flickering all around.
The Ruhrtriennale’s venues are industrial monuments including the blasting hall and power plant at Duisburg-Nord Industrial Landscape Park, the Zollverein Coal Mine Industrial Complex in Essen and the machine hall at the Zweckel colliery in Gladbeck. The main theatre is the Jahrhunderthalle in Bochum. Artists such as Ariane Mnouchkine, Peter Brook, Bill Viola, Peter Sellars have shaped the Ruhrtriennale – and will continue to ensure that culture not coal is what the Ruhr does best.
