International Distribution

Julia Asperska facilitates a workshop/conversation as a part of International Encounters .

“During the workshop we will use Key Performance modus operandi as one of many possible models of working in the performing arts sector. We will speak about good practices and we’ll look into some case studies. I would like us to speak about strategies, ethics, quality and context, slow networking and finding the right partners and co-producers. We will speak a lot about failure. I have a particular fondness for (my) failures and I hope that after our conversation you will too.

There will be no team building exercises nor “elevator tests”.  I will not give you any straight answers nor easy recipes on how to be effective and successful in international diffusion. I will ask many questions though and I hope that they will help you figure things out yourself.” Julia Asperska.

International Encounters

Dansehallerne and The Development Platform are collaborating on a series of events during the spring of 2018, with the objective to develop concepts for new sustainable production strategies. The objective is to find international inspiration for ways to operate on a changing market.

New Production Strategies for the Choreographic Sector
The Danish choreographic sector is undergoing rapid developments. Choreographers, dancers and other artists dealing with choreography, establish new artistic constellations, new work- and production formats, engaging their audiences in new and innovative ways. All this at the backdrop of a difficult financial situation; Basically more artists sharing an ever dwindling budget for performative arts. Artists and producers find new ways of collaborating, applying new business models and finding new strategies to develop sustainable models for production.


INTERNATIONAL ENCOUNTERS is a part of Dansehallerne’s ILN initiative
The Innovative Leadership Network (ILN) is a Nordic cross-disciplinary platform focusing on the development of artist-led initiatives in the contemporary choreographic performing arts. The network establishes a cross-disciplinary exchange between artistic activities (choreography), universities (academic research) and the market (from production to presentation spaces). ILN aims at providing a frame to question classic models, tackle old-fashion interdependences and rethink practices in the contemporary creation value chain. Read more about ILN
