steirischer herbst celebrates an anniversary!

In 2017, steirischer herbst celebrates its 50th edition. Because of that, there wil be anniversary projects throughout the festival.

Nature Theater of Oklahoma (US)

Die Kinder der Toten – Der Große Dreh

The Nature Theater of Oklahoma ventures the impossible: creating a film version of Elfriede Jelinek’s novel “Die Kinder der Toten”. Filming around Neuberg an der Mürz is, at the same time, a live performance. Anyone who wants can come along and watch and, above all, join in!

Prometheus Unbound

Who was Prometheus and what does his liberation have to do with reorientation in the modern-day chaos of world views? In their works for this year’s herbst exhibition, artists explore Eurocentric thinking and invite the audience to open their eyes to new parameters of thought when they look at the world.
