Who starts with "av­ant­garde" must fin­ish with "Bo­chum"

Even if Bo­chum is of­ten re­garded as a party town with a gen­er­ally main­stream pro­gramme, there is still a vi­brant and fas­cin­at­ing fringe theatre scene and sub-cul­tur­al punk and av­ant-garde mu­sic to be dis­covered here. All this is not al­ways so easy to find. If you are brave enough to get close to the Bo­chum red light area on Rott­strasse, you?ll find a fas­cin­at­ing loc­a­tion dir­ectly be­hind the rail­way bridge and un­der the bridge arches. In the ?Rott5Theat­er?, ex­cit­ing, pro­fes­sion­al and ex­per­i­ment­al theatre is per­formed on stage. Un­der oth­er bridge arches, sub-cul­tur­al, loud mu­sic is played.
