Tollwood 2016 – Winter Festival

„Life is movement.“ Aristoteles

This winter the Tollwood Festival deals with mobility and a sustainable culture of mobility in Munich: a guide, how to change to future-oriented alternatives. Tollwood’s visitors will be emotionally „moved“ by discussions, lectures, exhibitions and performances in the Weltsalon and on the festival grounds. This includes also the dedication of the action group „Munich – As Nature Made Them“ for a state capital where the only products used are derived from animal farming operated in keeping with the nature of the species. A movement against industrial factory farming – for agriculture in harmony with humans, animals and nature. Also moving and fascinating is the European premier of „Saloon“ by Canadian Cirque Éloize – a spectacular show set in the Wild West including circus, acrobatics, theatre and dance. And don’t miss our legendary New Year’s Eve party!

Highlights of the Tollwood Winterfestival:

Cirque Éloize »Saloon« (Canada)

An adventure with music and acrobatics

Cirque Eloize

After the great success of „Cirkopolis“ the legendary Cirque Éloize returns to the Tollwood Winter Festival with its newest show „SALOON“ – a European premier. The artists take their audience on a trip to the Wild West. The colorful characters get in a variety of extraordinary incidents and in the grand final they impress with acrobatic highlights and innovative choreographies. Enjoy an organic 4-course-menu with the show.

This winter Tollwood deals with sustainable mobility in Munich and urban environments: Experts advise visitors about alternatives concerning personal mobility, e. g. carsharing, e-bikes or public transport. Our highlight: A bicycle bell concert with 1.000 bells distributed to the audience, directed by the young Austrian composer Julian Gamisch.

The “Weltsalon” (World Salon), Tollwoods tent for social and ecological issues, has its 10th anniversary this year. This winter it is all about “home”. British Urban Art Star Dean Zeus Colman, in short just Zeus, created an impressive, sculptural artwork on the subject of “home”. Again there are panel discussions with prominent guests like Claudia Roth, Vice-President of the German Bundestag and Kübra Gümüşay, blogger and journalist of Turkish origin. Lectures, concerts, performances and interactive installations make the programme at the “Weltsalon” complete.
