Nordic Performing Arts Days is a unique chance to see, experience and learn while meeting new colleagues from all over the world. These days will take the form of a caravan of performing artists who will be travelling through the four largest cities in Denmark, from Aalborg via Aarhus and Odense to Copenhagen. Streets and theatre spaces will be alive with performances, workshops and celebrations, including a visiting program for international presenters and much more.
Each city where the caravan stops will offer a new perspective on the performing arts – in Aalborg the focus is on new collective creation processes, in Aarhus on new and emerging platforms, new methods and possibilities and their impact on performing arts – primarily within the field of dance and performance art, in Odense on performing arts for young audiences and in Copenhagen on dramatic art.
- Aalborg – NEW COMMUNITIES: lectures, workshops and performances
- Aarhus - New and Emerging Platforms, new methods and possibilities and their impact on performing arts
