The Ruhrfestspiele are one of the oldest, largest and most renowned theater festivals in Europe. During the annual festival season from May 1 to mid-June, Recklinghausen is transformed into an international cultural and theatrical metropolis. International drama and dance theater and co-productions with major German-language theaters but also outstanding productions of the off-theater scene and the New Circus form the core of the contemporary program. Performance productions, visual arts, readings, concerts and new discourse formats also seek to address relevant political issues.
