HAU Hebbel am Ufer, with its three venues HAU1, HAU2 und HAU3 – HAU for short – is a paragon of current artistic positions at the interface of theatre, dance and performance. In addition, music, visual art and theoretical debates are a constant component of the wide-ranging programme. Since 2012 under the direction of Annemie Vanackere and her team, HAU is one of the most highly regarded and well-connected of international production houses. Both co-productions and touring productions by renowned artists and groups from all over the world are produced and shown here, as well as projects coming from the German and Berlin independent theatre and dance scenes. The HAU Artist Office provides production and touring management for selected artists. HAU stands for innovative formats that frequently attract attention far beyond Berlin, and provides impulse and inspiration for other art and culture producers. Festivals and thematic focal points are also a part of the programme, as is the Houseclub, especially targeting young people, where artists and students regularly work together side by side. In addition, HAU Hebbel am Ufer puts on one of Europe’s most renowned dance festival every year, “Tanz im August”.
