Diverse, interactive, captivating, humorous, poetic, informative...

The extensive short performance programme forms the centrepiece of the culture exchange for the past 31 years. Here artist/groups of all stripes introduce their latest productions in just 20 minutes each. Presented in three categories – performing arts, music & street theatre – on five live stages.

This is complemented by an exquisite supporting programme we put together for you: You can discover unconventional productions and performance formats under the heading "Specials". We have (interactive) installations, exhibitions in store for you as "Special shows".

Not to mention the big gala events that provide the appropriate framework for this international trade fair: the opening gala that officially kicks off the IKF on Sunday evening, and the renowned variety evening on the Wednesday as a festive finale.

And those interested in other aspects of the culture and event industry are warmly invited to attend the presentations and workshops in the "Knowledge Forum" seminar programme.
