KIINNAT FESTIVAL 2021

 

Six actors from the Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium and six actors affiliated with the Greenland National Theatre are the participating artists in KIINNAT FESTIVAL 2021. The festival will also include the local community in nine different cities in Greenland in the period from 7 September to 2 October 2021.

Nunatta Isiginnaartitisisarfia (Greenland National Theatre) is celebrating their 10 years of existence with the traveling festival, Kiinnat Festival 2021, with participating artists from Denmark and Greenland creating performances, shows and barters with music and spectacular events together with the local community in the cities they will visit.

The model for Kiinnat Festival 2021 is taken from the Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium – Odin Teatret's cultural barter - a concept that Odin Teatret has traveled the world with and is particularly known for. The festival takes place through a close collaboration between the Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium - Odin Teatret and the Greenland National Theatre, and it aims to establish working relationships with the individual leisure inspectors, cultural houses and the like around in Greenland.

Nunatta Isiginnaartitsisarfia and Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium - Odin Teatret presents professional artists, actors and musicians who will travel to eight different cities, where they will make a festival in each city. The Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium sends six actors from one of their artistic ensembles Ikarus Stage Arts.

Artists are divided into a western group and a northern group, respectively.

NTL: Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium - the ensemble Ikarus Stage Arts.
