DANCE IN THE RUHR METROPOLIS
While the creative scene in the Ruhr Metropolis is vibrant, a truly open underground or off-movement as found in other capital cities is lacking. Funding tends to be channelled to more established cultural institutions and organisations. Photo: © Ringlokschuppen Ruhr.
That said, expats who enjoy contemporary dance performances can fulfil their desire. The Ringlokschuppen in Mülheim, for instance, breaks the mould, offering a wide variety of creative options. Vibrant stage performances can also be found at MIR in Gelsenkirchen.
