With the programme ‘Artistic Pairs’, the Development Platform for the Performing Arts facilitates a pairing between two artists working within the Danish performing arts scene.
On a theatre production, you often stand alone as a stage director, playwright, costume designer, sound designer, choreographer etc. with your professional practice and skills.
Through the programme, two peers can follow each other’s work in the theatre season 2022/23 on up to three productions. This enables them to get a qualified, equal sparring partner from their own professional field.
