Every year the Opening event at the Internationale Kulturbörse Freiburg is a gala in the spacious theatre (Theatre Hall 1) on the evening before the trade fair starts – starring extraordinary artists in a marvellous programme. Traditionally the winners of the FREIBURGER LEITER award of the last year are performing in this evening.
As this year was the IKFs birthday, the Opening ends with an extraordinary fireworks display.

"Pleasure is only a lack of information" - following this motto, Nico Semsrott, the depressive depressive, will pass lots of information to the audience. The famous poetry slammer, known from google and youtube and multiple award winner describes himself: "Being a loser, I am a bad loser".
KGB-Clowns / RU
The KGB-Clowns: A composition of classic mime, tricky acrobatics and modern clownery. An extraordinary and unique manner to conjure nonsense onstage.
Anny Hartmann / DE
"Anny Hartmann understood that you do not only need humour but also attitude to entertain. Moreover, she owns the intelligence of a certified political economist. She combines in one person the three essentials of cabaret: attitude, humour and intelligence.
COMPAGNIE ALBEDO / ES
walk act - "Les Tonys"
The two bodyguards, Tony and Tony, are on the mission to protect city and inhabitants. They invent dangers where are none - and turn over reality. Burlesque theatre with an ironic view on a scary society.
ZEBRA Stelzentheater / DE
walk act - "Walking Roses"
Tall and splendid are the rose-bushes, they shift their shape, grow in all directions and finally get into a glamorous contact with the audience...
Tutatis / ES
Walk Act - "Horses From Menorca"
Horses From Menorca is a personal view of the menorcian festival. It imitates the simple character of horses and rediscovers the meaning of tradition, in an contemporary interpretation. An inimitable and original street show.
Theater Pikante / DE
Perfectly concerned about the visitors' privacy, the a little different cleaning ladies Ramona and her sister Bianca care restrainedly and tender for the wellbeing of the visitors at the "smallest room"...
Moderation: Herr Momsen / DE
Werner Momsen is not a human as you and me. He is a puppet: Skin of polypropylene, hair of polyacrylic and inside nothing but foam. From birth on special waste, not an easy life - but he loves it nevertheless. Indeed other-directed, he still is often more independent than his companion in black who is always inside him.
