International Days Programme 2020

RISING TOGETHER

– REFLECTING | ACTING | SUSTAINABLE


CPH STAGE facilitates three international days where International and Danish colleagues meet each other. This is where we continue and start conversations with each other. We aim to create a joyful atmosphere.

This year takes place either in the shadow or in the aftermath of COVID19 locking down (the performing arts) world as we know it. How do we go on from this excruciating period? How do we adapt and develop new ways of reaching people with the arts – when ‘the live experience’ isn’t a given? How do we overcome the long-term consequences of the performing arts venues, festivals, professional meeting places shutting down? We’re facing different national strategies that values and supports the arts in different ways. We’re facing closed borders – not knowing when this will change and how the world will look like afterwards.

This year it has been an intention from the beginning to focus on new ways to talk about the performing arts. Both in a live and digital version, it is important to nurture organic ways of reflecting the performing arts – how we collaborate, the role of the performing arts in society and how to create meetings with the audiences. Organic ways of meeting and rising together.

Please note that CPH STAGEs International Days includes a showcase programme – accessible to both Danish and International Participants.

We encourage you to keep the dates 28. – 30. May in your schedule – and await further notice. We follow the national and international updates regarding the Corona virus – as well as the national guidelines and recommendations provided by the Government Offices in Denmark – protecting the people vulnerable to the virus and the health care system.

If we’ll have to cancel/reduce a live version of CPH STAGEs International Days we’re working on different digital formats – let’s continue the conversation.

Choose one of these organic sessions

Session 1: The artist, the producer and the festivals!

Facilitated by CAMP (Creative Agent Manager Producer]

This informal peer-to-peer conversation opens up to fruitful perspectives from a producer, an artist and a presenter’s point of view. They all hold a key role in the specific festival and touring programs. How do they nurture development and implementation? How do they facilitate exciting opportunities and contexts for the arts? We are looking forward to this openhearted conversation which will touch upon tendencies and urgent issues as well as revealing the interdependence in our sector.

This conversation is facilitated by CAMP and is a co-operation between CAMP and CPH STAGE. CAMP (Creative Agent Manager Producer) is an investigation initiated by four self-employed agents, producers and company managers in the performing art field, aligned to curiously question and review the role of the creative agent manager and producer.

Facilitators: Betina Rex, Lene Bang Henningsen

Speakers: TBC

Session 2: Touring Ideas to Postpone the End of the World

Facilitated by artistic company hello!earth

How are artists and presenters finding new approaches to international touring and changing their criteria and practices in a moment of climate emergency? Inspired by the book “Ideas to Postpone the End of the World” by Ailton Krenak, hello!earth’s artists Vera Maeder and Jacob Langaa-Sennek and creative producer/curator Eduardo Bonito will activate and moderate this debate with a flavour of participatory methodology.

Facilitators: hello!earth aka Vera Maeder, Jacob Langaa-Sennek and Eduardo Bonito

11.00 – 12.00:

Festivals – pitch of festivals

Every festival is created to solve a problem. Some are born and rise in political response. Some are empowering a city, a milieu, a particular mindset. Some again are there to make a point, to develop the arts, to bring the arts to people – making a Dionysian experience for a small or huge mass of people. This session is a pitch of different festivals – with different ways of working.

Speakers: Festival creators TBC
