We offer a wide range of different productions to our visitors, from international guest performances, the international summer festival and the emphasis on certain topics, the productions of freelance theater groups in Hamburg and the support of the new blood artists. We present a spectrum of aesthetical standpoints and groundbreaking tendencies not only in theater, dance and performance, but also in music, the fine arts and architecture.
Kampnagel is a productive laboratory for ideas, a think tank, a place for controversy, but also a vivid concert hall, music lounge, club. We work on new formats, that seek to explore contemporary forms of public life, communication, interaction, participation and knowledge transfer.
Kampnagel is not only a temple for the fine arts. It is open to the society and the sourroundings. We understand Hamburg as not only the city being inhabited by our visitors, but also as a field to be explored, a place stocked with new material, a site worth investigating and of course as a stage, which we enter with mobile formats.
As a whole, we present roughly 100 premieres, debut performances and nonrecurring eventy per season, which attract about 150,000 visitors per season each year.
