On 1 November, the “Haus of Jazz” will celebrate its grand opening with ten acts and numerous German premieres on all levels of the Festspielhaus.

Nicole Mitchell and the Black Earth Ensemble open the evening on the big stage. But even before that, the interactive performance “FutureLeaks: A Place of Visions” invites you to a utopian experience and the Berlin KIM Collective plays its Carte Blanche and creates the “Un(ter)Ort” – a musical echo of what is happening above ground. The interludes on four stages, lasting several hours, open parallel musical universes – from free improvisation, experimental noise to solo piano, modern jazz and electro-acoustic sounds. The audience is invited to move freely and discover the diversity of the festival programme. Rob Mazurek concludes the evening with his highlight “Exploding Star International: Chicago-Berlin” initiated for the Jazz Festival on the main stage.
