CONNECTIONS

CONNECTIONS is a resource provided by Performing Arts Platform in 2017-19 to connect fellow artists in order to create, share artistic practice and explore the potential for future collaboration and production in Aarhus/Central Denmark Region. The program is open to emerging professional choreographers based in Denmark in a joint residency with an international counterpart. Throughout their joint residency they commit to assist, push, inspire and challenge each other artistically – and to engage with the wider community.

PERFORMING ARTS PLATFORM

PERFORMING ARTS PLATFORM is a network organization for the independent performing arts sector in Aarhus. We are not a production house nor a theatre but a platform that collaborates closely with the whole arts community – including theatres, production houses, entrepreneurs, organizations, faculties, independent artists etc. Performing Arts Platform brings people together, ensures and facilitates knowledge, reaches out and provides framework and visibility for the performing arts community in the region.
CONNECTIONS is a three-year strategic project (2017-2019) supported by the Danish Arts Council, Central Denmark Region, Bikubenfonden and the City of Aarhus to contribute to a continuous vibrant and dynamic performing arts sector in the region.

NEXT DEADLINE

An Open Call for CONNECTIONS 2.0 (2018) will be announced in autumn 2017.
