CODA aims to strengthen dance as an art form in Norway by presenting a diversity of national and international contemporary dance through a biennale of the highest artistic calibre.
The festival aims to contribute to the development of Norwegian dance through performances, workshops, seminars and other events and highlight Oslo and Norway as an international arena for contemporary dance.
CODA Oslo International Dance Festival was founded as a non-profit in the spring of 2001 and produced its first festival in the autumn of the following year.
Since 2002 CODA has brought national and international dance to new audiences in Oslo and beyond, and this year is the last festival under the directorship of its co-founder and artistic director Lise Nordal. As a festival with significant history, yet at the threshold of a new era, we have in this year’s programme particularly explored the notion of time and sharing.
