HEXENTANZ invites you to join the creatures of the night in their biggest celebration of the year: Valpurgis Night - when the Hexen come together and dance to welcome Spring and the return of May. Enter a magical, surreal world: immersive paths, arcane cults, magic potions, demons, black cats and fortune tellers.

Travelling gypsy-folk bands and a mysterious, beautiful Hex will fill the forest with live music. Meanwhile in the dancehall satanic good DJs will make you dance to the best of house, pop and funk music, ensuring that earthlings and creatures of the night will become one wild moving mass.

An immersive production invites explorers, dreamers and party-goers to join a night like no others. Three rooms filled with elements of an unknown and distant world invite guests to leave their mundane lives behind and to escape reality for one night. This party will bring the underworld together with the earthlings, and guests can expect a night full of wonders and surprises.

the Owle Schreame Theatre Company populates the Hexentanz with characters ripped from history, doomed to re-live fragments of their strange and long-dead stories, begging you to interact and join them.

Experience and interactive installation design collective RunHoratio are teaming up with movement Goddesses: The People Pile, to bring you dizzying, shamanic, bloodlust in the form of The Hexen. These wild women, the very force of pure nature are expanding their group, from the shadows, they will take you. Keep the forest pure and balanced, let The Hexens' influence take you far, far away.

Hexentanz will overwhelm and leave you broken, begging for more.

Just watch the darkness. There are worse things than your nightmares.

Are you brave enough to join us, or will you run?

Start your adventure here.
