Sommerwerft 2022


22. July – 7. August 2022


Open Call Sommerwerft 2022

We are now looking forward to receiving your applications for theatre, dance or performance art, sound, space or other forms of installation art, music or poetry contributions … we are open to the most diverse ideas and concepts and hope to be able to present a wide spectrum of different art forms again.

Somewhere between dystopia, the status quo and utopia, the call for entries focuses on the question of how we want to shape our social coexistence in the future – stories about what is possible. We want to invite you to dream and vision – despite and precisely because of today’s conditions.

Deadline: 15. Mai.

Welcome to the Sommerwerft!

For 17 days , the Weseler Werft is completely transformed.

Together with you, we create a space that encourages freedom, creativity and joy of life for all. Freedom to leave everyday life behind and to inspire each other, exchange ideas and enjoy each other’s company.

We all wish you a good time at the Sommerwerft and we all try to take care of each other. We help each other, are there for each other and make sure that everyone can feel comfortable. For this we need all of you as well!

This is a space for tolerance, respect and solidarity!

We encourage you to be open to new things and see things that are supposedly known and recognized in a new light. Do not be afraid of the unknown, but try to embrace it with curiousity and see what it may bring you today. In the form of people, flavours, dance, theater, stories and music… with all your senses, awake or dreaming. A moment that passes – and yet can mean an eternity.

Thank you. Freedom and happiness is the only way

Your Sommerwerft Crew

About us

Make a donation to the Sommerwerft!

There is no big profit-oriented event agency behind the Sommerwerft, nor is it supported by the institutionalized theaters. Many small businesses, self-employed people, artists and are currently struggling to maintain their existence. Our association is no different. You can imagine that the cancellation of the festival would leave us with a serious financial loss. Thankfully, we have a strong partner in the Kulturamt Frankfurt, who is supporting us even in these difficult times. Nevertheless, we are also dependent on your support. Even if it’s not money in the collection box immediately after the performance, every small donation helps us continue our work.
