The DEN

The DEN - Dance Expo Norway is a meeting place for the dance industry!

This multiyear program from 2019-2021 includes expos and conferences for dance artist and producers offering opportunities to develop skills and enhance networks. 
During the international platforms artist will get opportunities to pitch and present their work to programmers from around the world. This will be the place to see first hand new and exciting dance from Norway!

The project is a huge collaboration between CODA and the five main dance venues in the Oslo capitol region, Perfoming Arts Hub Norway and five dance festivals across the land! 

Welcome!
 

GOALS:
The DEN has three main objectives:

1. Meeting place
To be a welcoming and open meeting place for dialogue, exchange, and opportunities across the dance community both nationally and internationally.

2. Dance Platform
An international platform to create opportunities for working dance artists to present their work to international programmers, venues, organizers and producers. Their work will be displayed and direct dialogue will be established between participants of the platform.

3. Conferences and skill development
To create awareness of the role producers have in developing artistic work, collaboration, communication and leadership. Within this is the goal to develop specific skills in the dance community to use all tools available to it's fullest potential.
The conferences will present four modules:

- Leadership
- Artistic Context and History Dance History
- Production
- Administration

The content of each module will be developed in close collaboration with the field itself, the partners and educational institutions in the Nordic region.
