Monheim Triennale - The Prequel

How it all begins

On this year’s planned Triennale festival dates we will present ‘The Prequel’ from July 1st or 3rd, 2021.

For this special edition of the Monheim Triennale we’ve invited a small but fine selection of artists who represent the idea of the Monheim Triennale at its best.

„The Prequel“ is neither meant as a substitute nor a compromise. 'The Prequel' tells the story of how it could have been one year before the originally planned start of the festival in 2020: 14 artists coming together in Monheim am Rhein. They get to know each other, they get to know the city, they develop projects together and last but not least, they make music together. ‘The Prequel’ will be smaller than the originally planned Triennale edition for this year, but more refined, more intimate and with a unique artistic profile. ‘The Prequel’ will be a laboratory, a workshop, a think tank where the future is imagined.

In a best-case scenario, depending on international travel restrictions, infection rates and regional hygiene regulations, all invited musicians will accept our invitation and we can open the event to guests.

Whether we will offer any concert tickets for sale and any additional information on „The Prequel“ will be announced here closer to the event date.
