International Industry Programme 2019

>>> CPH STAGEs International days 27. – 29. May 2019

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 and a possibility to get to know Danish performing arts. The days consists of an international artistic programme (both selected and fringe), an industry programme and international visitor’s programme for professional presenters, producers, self-producing artists and press.


CPH STAGE 2019 – international industry programme
This year we’re focusing on the works. How do we work with the art works after the premiere? How do we present them before they have been made? How do we talk about them? We like giving people the best settings for meeting and sharing reflections, perspectives and thoughts-in-the-moment. That means that every day contains at least one informal or formal meeting-you event.

Book your seat at the international industry programme (424,99 kr. / 57 Euro – including booking fee) – which covers administration, lunch and beverage – no matter if you attend one or three days
