FFT exists since 1999. We are the platform for professional independent theater in NRW’s capital city of Düsseldorf. Theatre, performance, dance, visual arts and music as well as interdisciplinary formats take their place at the FFT. Art, research and education are the FFT’s areas of action, where social discourses are negotiated. The focus is on democratisation, urban life and action, postcolonialism and intercultural openness, networking and digitality. The FFT works closely with schools and universities to actively involve children, adolescents and young adults in the arts. The FFT is a partner in a national and international network of production venues and theatres.
