Forum Maximum presents Hagen Rether
Sun 19. March 2023 / 8 pm / Großer Saal
“We can’t save the world? Ok, but who else can?” Hagen Rether doesn’t serve up classical cabaret, but instead presents a game of association, an offer to exercise the little grey cells. The cabaret artist refuses to reduce complex contexts and social as well as political absurdities to mere punchlines. Nor does he slaughter scapegoats or make it his business to destroy media figureheads with his satire because it’s not only “those at the top” who are responsible.

Rether’s LOVE is tragic, comic, painful and infectious: the constantly changing programme with a title that always remains the same triggers lasting dissatisfaction with simple explanations and encourages people to think and act for themselves. For almost three and a half hours, the cabaret artist passionately argues the case for enlightenment and compassion, against double standards and a consumption-driven couldn’t care less attitude. Change is possible – if we want it.

Worth Knowing For Your Visit

  • Performance Venue Grosser Saal

    The event is taking place in the Großer Saal, the heart of the Historische Stadthalle. Its famous acoustics, spectacular sense of space under a ceiling that is 17 metres high, its décor and galleries take one’s breath away time and again.

Corona update

The FAQs for visitors and event organisers should answer questions concerning your visit or event organisation.


The Historische Stadthalle is located in the heart of North Rhine-Westphalia and lies in the centre of Wuppertal-Elberfeld. We are easily reached by public transport. The ICE train station and local bus stops are in the immediate vicinity.

This is where you will find detailed directions.

Parking Flat Day Rate

Make use of our flat day rate for parking. It only costs 4 euros. One useful tip: you can pay at the pay stations in the multi-storey car park itself or in the stairwell either when you return to your vehicle or in advance of attending events. That will save you time waiting at the pay stations after the end of events.


It goes without saying that the Historische Stadthalle is equipped to provide access for disabled people.

Wheelchair ramps and lifts (with announcement) will provide you with easy access to all rooms.

Parking spaces for disabled people are available both in the multi-storey car park and in the Südstrasse car park.

Toilets for disabled people can be found on the ground floor (to the right of the main entrance) at the eastern end of the foyer. They are clearly signposted.

A wheelchair is available in the building.

An unlimited number of wheelchair places is available in the Großer Saal.

Our concierge, foyer team and culinaria staff are happy to help should you need assistance at any time.
