PACT Zollverein

PACT Zollverein is situated inside the former pithead bath of UNESCO World Heritage Zollverein. In this setting that is worth seeing itself PACT has, since it was founded in 2002, clearly positioned itself as an initiator, catalyst and venue for seminal developments in the fields of dance, performance, theatre, media and art at the interface of science, technology and society. Doing so it combines the idea of an international theatre, an artists’ house just as an institute for research and development. Artists and audience are equally given the chance to deal with current trends in contemporary art with a stress on dance and performance. The house’s public programme consists of high-class in-house productions, international cooperations and guest performances.
