Campus Musikfabrik

CAMPUS MUSIKFABRIK is the new and self-initiated program for creative research and skill enhancement of Ensemble Musikfabrik.
The ensemble is inviting internationally renown musicians, composers, choreographers, visual artists and scholars to multi-day workshops, in order to discover and explore various disciplines, to learn from them and work on new collaborations, coming together for a number of campus periods every year. Previously developed projects can be elaborated and expanded upon through this future-orientated, multi-disciplined cooperation, but the main focus is the development of new concepts and performance formats.
