Artists and program

“hin&herzo - the Cultural Festival” is an annual festival and has an individual festival theme each year. In 2018, the festival theme is “Revolution!”. Artists from our region and from all over Germany will tell their stories, sing their songs and make their performances according to this theme. Every single chosen opus is, with regard to its character and artistic nature, somehow related to the festival theme of Revolution. It throws a spanner in the works of society and arts. But even more: Some artists have developed works illuminating the full range of meanings and all possible varieties of Revolution particularly for “hin&herzo - the Cultural Festival”.


Yet, not only the contents presented are revolutionary, the locations are as well. The town center of Herzogenaurach will be conquered and transformed by arts and culture, sounds, texts and installations. Feel free to enter locations you have never associated with arts before. After all, it is an integral part of revolution to rethink the established.

Our Cultural Festival is meant to enable new ways for an intellectual, sensible, culinary or completely other approach to the festival theme.

Artists of the highlight events:

Author reading with Axel Hacke

Thursday | 27th September 2018 | 8.00 PM | Culture Pavilion in Hauptstraße (main street)
“The columnistic manifest” already is quite a revolutionary title. In 1001 newspaper columns published in the “Süddeutsche Zeitung Magazin”, Axel Hacke, one of Germany’s best columnists, has taken a closer look at our times and the corresponding phenomena. These columns have now been re-published in the columnistic manifest. No wonder that he is one of the most successful authors of the year 2018 - and therefore also the perfect opener for our festival program! His reading is the opening event for “hin&herzo - the Cultural Festival” at the hin&herzo Culture Pavilion.

Concert with Barbara Dennerlein - “solo/pipe organ”

Saturday | 29th September 2018 | 8.00 PM | St. Magdalena church, Kirchenplatz
Barbara Dennerlein dares a revolutionary musical fusion: She is going to play jazz music on the church organ, bringing improvisation, unleashing and disharmonism to the structured and expectable church hall. Her CD “Take Off” ranked number one of the Jazz Charts and is one of the best-selling jazz albums. It presents a spitting Hammond organ. Barbara Dennerlein represents the overcoming of rigid limits in music. At “hin&herzo - the Cultural Festival”, she is going to present her solo program on the Metzler organ in the St. Magdalena church. Take a seat, close your eyes and tear down sound walls!
The concert will be broadcast live from the organ onto a big screen.

Concert „Beethoven : Ventuno“

Sunday | 30th September 2018 | 8.00 PM | St. Magdalena church, Kirchenplatz
After the French Revolution in the early 19th century, Germany was shaken by riots as well. Particularly Ludwig van Beethoven’s third symphony “Eroica” (Heroic Symphonie) is deemed one of the most revolutionary and important works of music history. Thanks to his timeless prestige, Beethoven is not only an important representative of the “Viennese Classic”, but also a representative of revolutionary sounds - a real classical composer. The Orchestra Ventuno presents the "Eroica” as well as the overture of Beethoven’s incidental music “Egmont” and a composition by Gerald Fink dealing with revolution.

Program at the Culture Pavilion

Friday | 28th September 2018 |

8.00 PM: Theater Kuckucksheim - Georg Büchner's "Woyzeck"
Social injustice, political revolution, liberalism and nationalism: During the “pre-March era”, the period between the French Revolution at the end of the 18th century and the German March Revolution in 1848, Georg Büchner wrote his evocative piece about "Woyzeck”. Social pressure makes a man become a victim and a culprit at the same time. The Theater Kuckucksheim drama group around Stefan Kügel presents Büchner’s most important and, at the same time, highly oppressive piece about “Woyzeck” dealing with the deformation of a human being.

8.00 PM: Song night "Die Gedanken sind frei" ("Thoughts are free!")
“Die Gedanken sind frei” (“Thoughts are free!”) is one of the best known songs about having a free mind. It is therefore the title of a roundabout of revolutionary songs from the 1790s until today. Stefan Grasse (guitar), Bettina Ostermeier (accordion) and Elke Wollmann (recitation and vocal) will present a program they have created particularly for “hin&herzo - the Cultural Festival”. Their songs are about “freedom, equality and fraternity”, about resistance, the labor movement and the riots in South America. Dare a musical trip around the world with songs by and about people dealing with revolution with their voices, texts, songs and hearts.

11.00 AM: Project  “Revolution of the Third World - Where is it all leading to?”
Kaya in Burkina Faso/West Africa is one of the twin towns of Herzogenaurach. When the jazz trumpet player Lars Töpperwien and the video artist David Nedoschill (both former pupils at the Gymnasium Herzogenaurach school) visited Kaya in late 2017, the experiences they made became sources of inspiration for a series of compositions and video clips. They expressed their impressions by means of arts and created their matinee project “Revolution of the Third World - Where is it all leading to?” especially for “hin&herzo - the Cultural Festival”.

3.00 PM: Anne Klinge’s Foot Theater - “The Emperor’s New Clothes”

Anne Klinge’s feet have been celebrated at live performances all around the world, they have appeared on TV shows and have generated more than 20 million clicks on youtube. In the framework of the children’s program of “hin&herzo - the Cultural Festival”, Anne Klinge's toes, bunions and heels will tell the story of a supercilious monarch. Her play “The Emperor’s New Clothes” is based on the popular fairytale by Hans Christian Andersen and subversively tells about revolution - not only because her feet are, from time to time, as naked as the emperor himself is.
