NORDIC FOCUS DAY – including pitch session

The Development Platform invites, in collaboration with Det Frie Felts Festival, The Project Centre in Dansehallerne and CPH Stage, to a day where the focus is on co-production, touring possibilities and residencies in the Nordic countries. The goal is to strengthen artistic collaboration in the Nordic region and international collaborations in general within the performing arts sector.

11.45 – 12.45: Lunch and networking

12.45 – 14.45: International Pitch-session of Danish groups and artists In this last part a number of groups or artists from the scene in Denmark will present future projects, pitch new ideas or existing touring pieces, looking for co-producers, presenters or partners from the Nordic region.
