A young collective of budding musicians, dancers, directors, technicians, actors and visual artists open (up) a space in the west of Bochum's city centre – DIE PRÄRIE : a space for interdisciplinary work, for communication and trying out new forms of visual arts, as well as for forming networks of young artists  from the Ruhr region. DIE PRÄRIE is at the same time rehearsal and performance space, workshop and network, stage and gallery. A barrier-free OPEN SPACE for encounters and communication. Because of the fact that different artistic disciplines share a space, the PRÄRIE creates an opportunity for interaction, inspiration and innovation. Different works encounter each other and can jointly challenge the prevailing projections on the constructed identity of their artistic world. A place for further development, self-testing, reflection, discussion, production.
