Interdisciplinary 1:1 Festival all over Stuttgart
25 venues – 100 artists – 500 performances
1:1 CONCERTS e.V., the Stuttgart State Orchestra and the SWR Symphony Orchestra are organising a festival weekend on 24 and 25 Juli 2021 dedicated entirely to freelance artists. At 25 venues all over Stuttgart, 100 freelance artists from the disciplines of music, dance, drama, puppetry and artistry will perform over 500 individual 1:1 PERFORMANCES.
What is a 1:1 PERFORMANCE?
A 1:1 PERFORMANCE is an approx. 10-minute non-verbal encounter between one guest and one artist. An initial eye contact is the impulse for a personal individual performance – an intense experience for both sides, which enables proximity from a distance. Who will be performing? That remains a surprise. The festival explores new exciting venues as many Stuttgart hosts open their doors: an art gallery, a building site, a vantage point with a view over Stuttgart…. come and see! And listen!
Saturday, 24 July 2021, 3-8 p.m.
Sunday, 25 July 2021, 11 a.m.-4 p.m.
Free entry tickets can be booked via the website of the Stuttgart State Opera:

The charity aspect:
The 1:1 FESTIVAL gives freelance artists a paid stage and all donations made during the festival weekend are used to sustainably strengthen Stuttgart’s art scene. In solidarity, the musicians of the Stuttgart State Orchestra and the SWR Symphony Orchestra will once again raise funds for their freelance colleagues.

How it all began
The 1:1 FESTIVAL is based on the idea of the 1:1 CONCERTS, which enabled the first real concert experiences for one guest and one musician each at a safe distance at the beginning of the Corona pandemic in spring 2020. The 1:1 CONCERTS, which had already been tested before the pandemic at the chamber music festival in the Thuringian monastery of Volkenroda , began their journey around the world in Stuttgart a year ago. In Stuttgart alone, over 1,000 of these intimate musical encounters have taken place; internationally, well over 8,000 of these concerts have been played.
The 1:1 Festival is a joint project of 1:1 CONCERTS e.V., Staatsorchester Stuttgart, SWR Symphony Orchestra with the support of the Künstler:innen Soforthilfe Stuttgart, Pop-Büro Region Stuttgart, DUNDU, Stuttgarter Ballett, BIX Jazzclub, Bürgerstiftung Stuttgart, Stuttgart Philharmonic Orchestra and Internationale Schauspielakademie CreArte
The project is made possible by donations from the Rotary Club Stuttgart-Fernsehturm, the Colla Parte Foundation Basel, Züblin and funds from the “Prize Innovation” of the German Orchestra Foundation.
