From 11th-19th February 2017, the 7th "hellwach", the international theatre festival for young audiences, took place in Hamm and six towns in the region. "hellwach" was a meeting platform for people of all ages – from younger than 1 to older than 90 years. 

Artists from seven European and African countries presented a wide range of plays for children in their early years, for older children, teenagers and adults. The performances consequently followed their different artistic approaches and lead the audiences in the different towns to surprisingly new views and perspectives on the world.

The people in Ahlen, Bergkamen, Bönen, Hamm, Kamen, Lippstadt and Lünen enjoyed the shows presented. They were fully booked and got a strong applause from their audiences.

The framework program invited everybody to discuss questions of theatre work in a transcultural world, starting from theatre pedagogic projects and going on to international exchange networks and transcontinental co-productions.
