Happy New Year!
2019 kicks off like last year with a trip to New York for both our general manager Anne Larsen and project manager Vanessa Storm. From 4th to 8th of January they will be in New York as part of a delegation from the Norwegian performing arts scene, promoting both brand new works and current touring productions by Jo Strømgren Kompani.
The main event during these days will be the seventh edition of the convention Norway Now, taking place Sunday January 6th. Norway Now serves as an opportunity for North American presenters, curators and festival directors to discover a wide range of independent Norwegian artists creating exciting new works in film, dance, physical theater, opera, live music, puppet theater and video art. The event is organized by Performing Arts Hub Norway and held annually in New York City at the renowned Scandinavia House, where seventeen artists and producers give a 5-minute pitch highlighting one work that is ready to tour. This is followed by networking opportunities for international collaboration, co-production and presenting. Anne and Vanessa will give a 5-minute pitch about our up and coming production The Breakdown.
During their stay in New York Anne and Vanessa will also be available for meetings. Please contact them at firstname.lastname@example.org to set up a coffee date!
