CTM Festival announce first acts and projects for 2018

CTM Festival have revealed the first phase of their 2018 programme.

The title for this year’s cross-discipline event is ‘Turmoil’. In a press release organisers wrote, “Uneasy times demand uneasy music.”

An art installation by the Dutch artist Philip Vermeulen will be housed at Halle am Berghain, Pharmakon and Moor Mother have been confirmed for the prelude, and groupA – along with Rashad Becker and Pan Daijing – will all be contributing to an Ernest Berk retrospective work, celebrating the iconic figure from the world of contemporary dance and choreography.

Elsewhere, a number of physical instillations and workshops have been confirmed for the weekend’s programme. Check out the full line-up of artists confirmed for CTM Festival below. Find more information and the full programme here.
