Vestjyske Holstebro lever op til sit ry som det vilde vesten. Byens tre-årlige festuge, anderledes og fuld af særegne, kulturelle indslag, danner rammen om borgernes gentænkning af sin by i samarbejde med 150 inviterede, internationale skuespillere, dansere, musikere og andre kunstnere i mere end 200 usædvanlige, underholdende og tankeprovokerende begivenheder.

 

Siden den første festuge i 1989 har den særlige kerne i Holstebro Festuge været, at kommunens borgere ikke alene optræder som tilskuere, men deltager aktivt gennem deres arbejde såvel som fritidsinteresser. Festugens specielle dynamik involverer diverse lokalmiljøer, som finder sammen og etablerer samarbejder og sætter gang i nytænkte projekter. De efterfølgende initiativer og situationer fremstår overraskende og kan beskrives både som organiserede forestillinger og uventede indslag. Sportsklubber, skoler, fritidsordninger, kirkerne og deres sognebørn, kulturinstitutioner, etniske og religiøse minoriteter, dragonkasernen, politiet, brandvæsenet, byens forretninger og foreninger, sundhedssektoren, ældrecentre, etc., danner rygraden i de ni dage, festugen varer. De mange lokale miljøers tværgående aktiviteter udspiller sig i en teatralsk ramme, skabt af Odin Teatret i samarbejde med de mange, inviterede gæstekunstnere.

Holstebro, a town in Western Jutland, lives up to its reputation as the wild west. Its Festuge, a festive week embracing diversity and culture, enables the inhabitants - along with 150 invited foreign actors, dancers, musicians and other artists - to reshape their town with more than 200 unusual, funny and thought-provoking events.

 

Since the beginning in 1989 the particular characteristic of Holstebro Festuge has been that the inhabitants are not only the audience, but they participate actively through their work and recreational interests. The Festuge's dynamic involves different local milieus which come together establishing collaborations and realising innovative projects. The subsequent initiatives and situations are surprising and can be described both as organised performances and as unexpected stagings. Sports clubs, educational institutions, churches and their parishioners, ethnic and religious minorities, the army, the police and firemen, business and commercial associations, kindergartens, schools, hospitals and old people's homes are the backbone of these nine days of celebration. More than a hundred different milieus participate in a host of interrelated activities within a theatrical framework created by Odin Teatret and the invited artists.

 

The Holstebro Festuge 2017 is a combination of three major cultural events:

Holstebro Festuge (www.odinteatret.dk), Aarhus 2017, European Capital of Culture (www.aarhus2017.dk) and Caravan Next (www.caravanext.eu).

ORGANISED BY

Holstebro Festuge is coordinated by Odin Teatret. Several development meetings were held during 2016 to exchange ideas and share information between organisers. The overall theme, proposed by Odin Teatret, serves as the unifying wall, against which all organisers are bouncing off.
