Sommerblut is a cultural forerunner. The Cologne based festival thinks ahead if it comes to developments in society. Sommerblut shares the vision of cultural participation for all human beings – irrespective of physical or mental abilities, ethnic or social background, age, gender or religion. Sommerblut is experimental and touching. The festival takes risks, breaks up with conventional ways of presenting art and unites diverse perspectives. Sommerblut presents dance, music, visual arts, performance, theatre and literature. All art forms are invited to communicate and to open spaces for new experiences.
