10.00 – 10.30: INTRODUCTION. to the Danish performing arts scene [by Theatre Critic Monna Dithmer and Choreographer Tina Tarpgaard]


10.30 – 12.00: WORKING WORKS. Inspirational cases about how to work with works after the premiere.

  • Director and Executive Producer Glynis Hall from the agency Glynis Henderson Productions [United Kingdom]
    Glynis Hall is fascinated by productions with a universal appeal and, with over 25 years’ experience in the industry, she remains a leader in the theatrical field. She has presented numerous productions worldwide, including STOMP, which remains one of the UK’s most successful theatrical exports and the Danish show “BLAM!”. In this talk she shares what she looks for in a show and how she shapes a show for international touring.
  • Director/Designer Govin Ruben from TerryandTheCuz [Malaysia/Australia]
    Govin Ruben strives to create new forms that use interactive/visual stimuli to reflect and refract the changing socio-political landscape in the different cultural contexts we inhabit; to attract new and more diverse audiences to the arts. What happens to the performance and the production design when you navigate in various continents with different cultural mindsets?
  • Artistic Director Kira Kirsch at the venue Brut in Vienna [Austria]
    In coming years Brut will increasingly launch new projects in open spaces and in direct interaction with the city. New sites, ranging from shop vacancies or community halls to parking sites, peripheral industrial areas or churches, will be tapped as venues. What does this mean for the curating and production process? And how does this mission affect the venues programming on stage?


CPH STAGE facilitates three international days where International and
Danish colleagues meet each other. Living in a small country – we aim to
create a joyful atmosphere. We like giving people the best settings for
meeting and sharing reflections, perspectives and thoughts-in-the-moment.
This means that every day contains at least one informal or formal meeting- you event.

This year we are focusing on the art works. How do we work with them after
the premiere? How do we present them before they have been made? How
do we talk about them?

The Development Platform for Performing Arts is strategic collaborator at
CPH STAGEs International Industry Programme. CPH STAGEs International Industry Programme is supported by The Danish Arts Foundation and The Danish Cultural Institute a.o.
