A street theater festival of its own kind is scheduled to take place today through Sunday in Kaiserslautern.

For the sixth year, Lebenshilfe Kaiserslautern (an association for mentally disabled people) will sponsor the event called “Alles Muss Raus!” or, “Get it all out!” in cooperation with Lebenshilfe Arts and Culture, the City of Kaiserslautern and the Rheinland-Pfalz Culture Summer.

About 25 ensembles will turn the streets and squares of Kaiserslautern into a stage for theater and concerts.

More than 200 disabled and non-disabled artists from Germany, France, Belgium, the Netherlands and Spain will meet and celebrate together.

The festival will officially open with a revue at 7:30 p.m. today in Fruchthalle, known as Kaiserslautern’s concert hall. Tickets at the door cost €5. At the same time, Oktober Folk Club will present country jazz with barbershop music at the stage near Stiftskirche in the center of town to be followed by the air show of Theater Stap.

More performances will take place on the meadow near the Pfalztheater and on Stifsplatz until around midnight.

The international street theater and music festival will begin at 11 a.m. Saturday and 1 p.m. Sunday. 

Various walking acts such as the Giant Baby, the Green Man and the Olympic equestrians will lure visitors.

Musical performances will feature brass music, rock and pop music as well as bamboo sounds.

A children’s concert is scheduled for 2 p.m. Sunday on the stage near Stiftskirche. Outdoor performances are free.
