The third evening of dance »The Day« is another co-production of the Ludwigsburg Festival. The choreographer Lucinda Childs created the work, which deals with the existential question of the most important day in life in memory of 9/11, together with the composer David Lang, the cellist Maya Beiser and the dancer Wendy Whelan.

New Website and Digital Stage

What was begun in the blog »Resonanzraum« in the spring of 2020 will be continued by our new website: supplementing the analogue Ludwigsburg Festival that can be experienced physically, it will accompany the festival programme and the personal encounters and provide access to an even wider circle of interested parties. Digital formats, livestreamings and specially designed additional projects will make their appearance on a Digital Stage experience.
