What we do
We work to support, promote and raise the profile of Danish performing arts internationally by coordinating the Danish presence at international fairs abroad. In 2016 this includes:
Organisation of a Danish presence (stands, individual attendance etc.) at
- Tanzmesse NRW in Düsseldorf, Germany
- CINARS in Toronto, Canada
We work to support a number of funding programmes and grants schemes for the independent performing arts sector and local and regional theatres in Denmark. We are also responsible for the distribution of national lottery funds within this branch of the arts.
For foreign companies wishing to collaborate with Danish partners and for Danish companies wishing to work internationally we offer support in the shape of funding, information and help in making contacts.
We administer a number of grant schemes – providing, for example, travel grants for Danish artists, and dispensing support and advice to international partners. We run a number of visiting programmes for international festivals, stage directors, theatre companies and other exponents of the performing arts in order to increase awareness of Danish performing arts. These visiting programmes are tailored to suit the specific interests of the individual visitor or group.
