A festival double of the independent performing arts in Stuttgart

10 tage freischwimmen

For the 20th anniversary of the production platform, the FREISCHWIMMEN Festival meets 6 TAGE FREI, the festival of Baden-Württemberg's independent performing arts community. They combine to a unique festival double with 10 instead of 6 days full of theatre, performance, dance and music from Baden-Württemberg, from Germany, Austria and Switzerland, plus a sparkling urban space project, an academy of aging, parties, talks, encounters and workshops. Young talents meet all-stars, local meets international – 10 TAGE FREISCHWIMMEN is a splendid spring festival that celebrates the contemporary performing arts and asks in very different ways: How can we age together, both wildly and with dignity, on a planet whose lifespan is becoming increasingly uncertain? Because one thing is clear: we'll never be this young again!
