Performance & Party
Richard Lowdon and Phil Hayes will act as Masters of Ceremony to guide you through the opening celebrations for ‘Sideshow’. To the sounds of jazz, the pair will chair short quiz rounds, stage brief performative interventions to get the audience in the mood and then man the turntables with the most danceable sounds long into the festival night.

Davis Freeman / Random Scream
The Paris Agreement is a milestone in the fight against climate change yet since the US election at the very latest climate change deniers are in the ascendancy. And we all need to play our part anyway. But what can we do? The two eco-preachers in ‘7 Promises’ elicit seven promises from their audience for a sustainable world. Will our actions follow our words?
A late night performance for a better world in Richard Lowdon’s ‘Sideshow’.

For five long years Klub Genau created good independent music in the East of Cologne and made a name for themselves on the German music scene. Without their own space since 2015, they have continued to present a series of concerts in the legendary Gebäude 9. For Impulse Theater Festival they are now curating the series ‘Genau@Impulse’ and bring their special vibe with live acts and DJ sets to the festival center for three nights.

with Roland Kaiser Wilhelm (live), Seragon Business Band (live) & Miss Stereo / Rhythm Is (DJ-Set)

EMOTIONALE – hört die Signale!
For the final finale of the Impulse Theater Festival 2017 and its current team’s farewell the Cologne music performer PeterLicht will open the horizon above the festival center and fly with us in a rocket made of songs, texts and actions into the universe of possibilities. He will be accompanied by his new companion Benedikt Filleböck, formerly known as WOLKE, who will then take over the decks for some last moves.
