FRANKFURT LAB

Frankfurt LAB is an experimental space for contemporary artistic expression.

At Frankfurt LAB projects are produced by internationally renowned ensembles dedicated to contemporary music, dance and theatre – in collaboration with recognised artistic training institutions.

In the production and performance halls of Frankfurt LAB artists have at their disposal that rare luxury of time and space to experimentally develop and try out new works and/or performances in the laboratory. At the same time, the production process and its results are to be conveyed to the audience as well as to school children and students in the Frankfurt Rhine Main region. Research, production and outreach programs are therefore key tasks of this laboratory.

By concentrating production, training and research, art practice, theoretical reflection and reception at one shared location Frankfurt LAB goes beyond any similar approaches seen at other institutions in this context.
