Programme

"The Prequel" told the story as it really could have happened one year before the festival originally planned for 2020: 14 artists come together in Monheim am Rhein. They get to know each other, they get to know the city, they develop projects together and last but not least: they make music together. "The Prequel" has been smaller than the Triennale originally planned for 2021, but finer, more intimate and with a unique artistic profile. "The Prequel" has been the laboratory, the workshop, the think tank in which the future of the Monheim Triennale has been conceived.
