International Visitor’s Programme 2020

During the 8th edition of CPH STAGE in 2020 we organise an INTERNATIONAL VISITOR’S PROGRAMME within the International Days May 28th to 30th, where international and Danish colleagues meet each other and exchange experiences in a cosy and relaxed atmosphere.

CPH STAGE’S INTERNATIONAL VISITOR’S PROGRAMME is aimed at international programmers, producers, artists and professionals who are interested in Danish Performing Arts. Here you can experience works of originality, relevance and quality from the Danish scene – while networking with international and Danish colleagues.

This year, after a sold-out response in 2019, we open for the subscription for the international visitor’s programme 2020. In the end of December we’ll have picked a special selection for the international programme – with 6 Danish works and 8 pitches. In the end of February 2020 we’ll present the final programme at the CPH STAGEs International days 2020.

Tickets for this year’s International Visitor’s Programme will be available for 600 DKK, including VAT, food, transportation and tickets for the selected performances. Have a look right here to visit our website programme and this PDF document to check out some guiding notes, to learn more about the shows.

We’ll also be happy to recommend a specific hotel where you can ​get a special CPH STAGE discount (to be continued).

Book your ticket here.


LAST YEAR’S PROGRAMME

CPH STAGE 2019 – Focus: THE WORKS
We focus 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.

///////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////////

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?
