    Taktloss

Der Berliner Künstler Taktloss ist eine der einflussreichsten Figuren in der deutschsprachigen Rap-Szene. Mit provokativen Battle-Rhymes als Antithese zum damals spaßigen Mainstream- Rap legten er und sein MC Partner Kool Savas Ende der 1990er Jahre den Grundstein für eine neue, unmittelbarere Art von Rap-Musik. Während Savas und nachfolgende Gangster- und Street-Rapper nun selbst im Mainstream angekommen sind, hat der selbsternannte „letzte tighte N*****“ seinen Ruf als kompromissloser Verfechter des Untergrund- Raps gefestigt. In seinen Schizo-Reimen im Stakkato-Stil über rumpeligen Lo-Fi Beats werden Gewalt und Obszönität mit viel Witz ins Absurde überhöht und sind mehr dadaistische Sprachkunst als scheinbar authentischer Ausdruck von Straßenkultur.

Kampnagel is a theatre in Hamburg, Germany. It is Germany's biggest independent production venue for the performing arts. It is based on the premises of a former mechanical engineering factory in Winterhude, founded in 1865. Since 1982 it has been hosting and producing cultural activities, theatre and dance performances and concerts.

The International Summer Festival Hamburg takes place for three weeks each August at Kampnagel and selected places in the city of Hamburg. Since its beginning in the mid 80s, the festival has held a position as one of the big European festivals, presenting theatre, dance, visual arts, performance, music and theory from all over the world. András Siebold has been Artistic Director of the festival since 2013. His programme focuses on the entanglement of pop culture and avantgarde and the interdisciplinary expansion of genre boundaries. Invited artists stand out due to their interest and engagement in the present and radical aesthetic approaches. An essential feature of the International Summer Festival is the high proportion of world premieres and co-productions, as well as European and German premieres, which are realized within a worldwide network of partners. Each year the festival invites or produces about 50 different works that attract around 30.000 visitors from Hamburg and abroad.
