The Movimentos Festival at the Autostadt

An important venue for the performing arts

The Autostadt presented the first Movimentos Festival in spring 2003. Originally conceived as a contemporary dance festival, the series of performances represents a commitment to a universal art form. Dance is a fundamental expression of human movement. “When a spark of inspiration flows from the stage to the audience, we have achieved our goal”, explains Movimentos Artistic Director, Dr. Maria Schneider. The programme of events gradually evolved to include classical, jazz and pop concerts, theatre, staged readings and discussions.

The Magic of Dance

The Volkswagen KraftWerk, an unrestored power plant, proved to be an ideal place to stage Movimentos dance productions. In its first year, the festival hosted dance companies from Brazil, Taiwan, Spain and New York. What started out as a regional festival with a handful of contemporary dance performances, has since become one of Germany’s most popular cultural events. Movimentos attracts audiences from across Europe and enjoys a solid international reputation. The tradition of selecting specific themes for the annual Movimentos Festival was introduced in 2006.
