Event description
Let’s run away from a panic that swept the world, high to the Alps to share stories about high art, and this will be our New Decameron!

About this Event

In connection with the coronavirus Covid-19 pandemic, the festival is postponed to June 09-15, 2021.

Hohe Kunst kann man am besten hoch in den Bergen verstehen, näher zum Himmel und zu den Sternen!

Высокое искусство можно познать только высоко в горах, ближе к небу и звездам!

მაღალი ხელოვნება შეიძლება მხოლოდ მთებში იყოს ცნობილი, ცასა და ვარსკვლავებთან უფრო ახლოს!

High art can only be recognized high in the mountains, closer to the sky and the stars!

An amazing combination of summer holiday in the Alps with the most beautiful sound next silence - the music of world legends of the ECM-style, as well as deep impressions from strange performances, art objects and installations of iconic artists from around the Earth

Noumen Art presents to audience the best talents in the field of contemporary music, stage and screen art, fine art and synthesis of arts. Noumen Art is a festival for intellectuals

The beginning of our summer season 2020 will be special: this time in a crystal clear air of the Tyrolean Alps the magic cedar ringing will merge with an enchanting sound of Palle Mikkelborg's and Nils Petter Molvaer's trumpets, Terje Rypdal’s guitar and Arild Andersen’s double bass, these great ECM Style protagonists. It will be the most beautiful sound next to silence!

And also an echo of rebellious texts of Nietzsche's Zarathustra will be heard on the snowy alpine peaks. A reincarnation of Lou Salome, Ksanda WhiteBird, will sing those texts to the mountains... And somewhere nearby, in a space of electrified shocking images of Israeli artist Leni Smoraggdova, an unhurried mimo-dramatic sacrament called Japanese butoh will take place.

And more, taking out of nowhere, a breath of the distant Central Asian steppes will burst into the valley of Defereggental, along with bizarre installations of desperate Kazakh actionists... There will still be very many other things - delightful, strange, captivating mind and imagination...
