In addition, top athletes from Aachen will be honored. 

 

Impressive Acts in the Air and on the Floor

Between sequined dresses, Rhön wheels and combative displays: spectators can be captivated by spectacular performances in the air and on the ground at this year's University Sports Show. In addition to cheerleaders, impressive acrobatics and oriental dance, martial arts groups will also demonstrate their skills on stage. As usual, participants and spectators can look forward to the musical support of the Big Band of the FH Aachen "Full House".

Opening Performance with Impressions from the Current Situation in Iran

This year's opening performance was choreographed by Shahin Sadatolhosseini. Born in Iran, Sadatolhosseini came to Germany at a young age and discovered wheel gymnastics while living in Aachen. As an artist, he travels the world with his rhönrad. In 2017, he traveled on foot with his rhönrad from Aachen to Iran. He was also there in 2022 when the protests began. His impressions of the current situation in Iran are now included in the opening show. The performance will be musically accompanied by the Iranian-born singer Sanaz.
