The Prequel is the second part of the Monheim Triennale, which extends over three years. At The Prequel, the Signature-Artists meet for the first time. They get to know each other, as well as the city of Monheim am Rhein and its people, before presenting their Signature-Projects developed exclusively for Monheim at The Festival in the third year.
The story The Prequel 2021 told is:
14 artists came together in Monheim am Rhein. They entered into exchange with each other and with the city of Monheim. They developed projects together and last but not least: they made music together. The Prequel was a fine, intimate insight into the creation of new music, which represented the idea of the Monheim Triennale at its best. The Prequel 2021 was the laboratory, the workshop, the think tank where the future of the Monheim Triennale was conceived.
The main venue was the ship MS Rheinfantasie.
