International Distribution – Workshop/Conversation 

Meet Julia Asperska, who the last 7 years has been working with Stockholm based – Key Performance, an arts management company who primarily works on an international level. Julia will during this event facilitate a small workshop and conversation.

Julia elaborates:

During the workshop we will use Key Performance modus operandi as one of many possible models of working in the performing arts sector. We will speak about good practices and we’ll look into some case studies. I would like us to speak about strategies, ethics, quality and context, slow networking and finding the right partners and co-producers. We will speak a lot about failure. I have a particular fondness for (my) failures and I hope that after our conversation you will too.

There will be no team building exercises nor “elevator tests”.  I will not give you any straight answers nor easy recipes on how to be effective and successful in international diffusion. I will ask many questions though and I hope that they will help you figure things out yourself.

The workshop is for all that works in the performative arts.

PLACE: The Development Platform – Otto Busses Vej 5A, building 48, 2450 København

New Production Strategies for the Choreographic Sector

The Danish choreographic sector is undergoing rapid developments. Choreographers, dancers and other artists dealing with choreography, establish new artistic constellations, new work- and production formats, engaging their audiences in new and innovative ways. All this at the backdrop of a difficult financial situation; Basically more artists sharing an ever dwindling budget for performative arts. Artists and producers find new ways of collaborating, applying new business models and finding new strategies to develop sustainable models for production.

The event series International Encounters is organized in collaboration with Dansehallerne and Statens Kunstfond. #statenskunstfond #kunstgørenforskel
