The Dampfzentrale strives to break down borders between performance and club culture. The Dampfzentrale is not only stage, but also a place where you can meet and exchange - with artists, organizers or audiences in the bar or restaurant with a beautiful garden.
The Dampfzentrale is a platform for the experimental (New Music, sound art, independent music) and at the same time the place for crowd-pulling sounds such as rock and dancefloor.
Contemporary dance and performance at the Dampfzentrale reflect and influences the local, national and international professional dance scene. The dance festival TANZ IN. BERN (Tanz International Bern) is one of the highlights of the year.
