Our Aim is to support and empower Danish PERFORMING ARTS in an international framing

Our agenda with the curated international programme is to advocate the Danish Performing Arts on a global scene by using the international days at CPH STAGE to showcase some of the best Danish productions – while creating a meeting place where performing arts professionals from all over the world can begin or continue a conversation. Dialogue and exchaning perspectives is an essential value in Danish culture.
