Rampenlichter Dance and Theatre Festival for Children and Youth is celebrating its ten year anniversary in July 2017.

We are looking for young artists to take part in the largest dance and theatre festival in Munich’s Creative Quarter. We are looking for productions large or small, quiet or loud, simple or spectacular featuring children and teenagers from Munich, Germany, and across the globe!

From July 6 to 16, 2017 in Munich’s Schwere Reiter Theater we are proud to present a platform for creative exchange for young artists from Munich, Germany, and beyond.

Featuring a large variety of dance and theatre productions, a series of performances for local school classes, evening performances, a diverse selection of workshops, our KunstSpielRaum (Art-Play-Space) program located on the festival grounds, and—as in other theatre festivals—Rampenlichter facilitates a space for artistic exchange between artists and audiences alike.

Rampenlichter provides dance and theatre groups with the opportunity to:

  • Present their artistic work to other groups, school classes, and the general public
  • A full, diverse program of productions throughout the festival
  • Witness and learn new performance styles
  • Lead workshops for school classes and other groups
  • Take part in workshops lead by other groups and
  • Take part in an exchange of artistic and stylistic exchange


Our festival is aimed towards groups with full-length evening productions, as well as shorter dance and theatre productions.
