“Bridge the chasms that divide”

New works for string quartet 30 years after the fall of apartheid in South Africa

For our new project, we invite some of South Africa‘s most original and powerful voices to reflect musically on their own experiences and journeys before and after 1994. “Bridge the chasms that divide“ will launch in Bremen on South African Freedom Day, exactly 30 years after the first free and fair elections took place.


SIGNUM open space on the Überseeinsel

We have our new home in the former Kellogg’s premises, surely the most exciting neighbourhood in Bremen!

SIGNUM open space is a cultural space where everyone is welcome, where a lively exchange can take place and where high-quality artistic programmes are offered. Everyone is cordially invited to discover new things in an informal setting and to experience art and music across all genres.
