The festival

One of Germany's leading cultural events

The Autostadt presented the first Movimentos Festival in spring 2003. Originally conceived as a contemporary dance festival, the series of performances represents a commitment to a universal art form. Dance is a fundamental expression of human movement. The programme of events gradually evolved. What started out as a series of dance performances evolved to become one of Germany's leading cultural events in 2006. Along with a diversity of dance performances, the festival line-up included some of Germany's top stage and screen stars.
