ACTHOW - Exchange Learn Perform

ACTHOW - Exchange Learn Perform

Come and experience two exciting, intense and educational weeks with professional artists at Nordic Theatre Lab (NTL).
Participate in the theatre lab's learning-rich workshops and contribute to a performing arts exchange that produces theatre across time, traditions and genres.

ACTHOW is a reflective research platform that invites artists to participate in new collaborations and artistic constellations. The aim is to explore the question "ACT - HOW?" through both language and body language.

We encourage artists from all disciplines within theatre and performing arts to participate, exchange knowledge and work together. There are also a few places available for those who wish to participate through observation only.

NTL has historically been an international meeting place for artistic encounters and research. The theatre has undergone some major changes and faced some incredible shifts in recent years. As we evolve, we are constantly trying to redefine our purpose and respond to new and current issues. When recurring questions arise, we can't expect the answers to remain the same as when they were originally asked. 

On the first day of ACTHOW, participants will introduce themselves and share their practices. The purpose is to establish relationships between the participants and those working at NTL.

Participants will work with NTL's artists on physical training and on creating a production based on Henrik Ibsen's play 'Peer Gynt'. During the daytime, spaces for reflection and exchange will be created, followed by evening performances and work demonstrations.
In addition to the performing arts activities, there will also be opportunities to meet with members of the theatre lab's Archive - called Kuben (The Cube) - and the other artistic and administrative staff at NTL.

Further information about preparatory tasks will be sent upon registration.
