Since its relaunch in 2005 under the artistic direction of Tomas Zierhofer-Kin, donaufestival (Krems/Austria) has positioned itself both nationally and internationally as a singular platform for new artistic disciplines beyond all genre borders. On two consecutive, densely programmed weekends in late spring, the festival combines new theatre forms, innovative performance art, musical acts ranging from experimental to cutting-edge pop and club culture, commissioned works, and special art projects into an extravagant multimedia art action. 605 artists and groups have been guests at donaufestival between 2005 to and 2013. 2014 donaufestival sets off on a quest in search of artistic statements that navigate within the thematic complex of humans, nature, exploitation, and exclusion between everyday realities and utopian concepts. In non-hierarchical group experiences, interventions in public space, and performative and discursive rituals, vehement visual, sonic, and vocal indictments against a world of exclusion, eradication, and destruction converge with utopian counter models for society beyond all obsolete dualistic thought and action schemes. This utopia of a new world conception in the realm of the performative arts is also reflected in the rendering of a radically new soundscape that spans from experimental electronic innovations between ambient and techno to audio-visual premieres, new band and club formats, sound art, and installations.
