In collaboration with the Swedish Institute, we are, together with Assitej Sweden, inviting and coordinating a number of international guests who will attend Bibu. Bibu is a festival where everyone interested in the performing arts for a younger audience can meet and be inspired; by each other, by the performances that are shown and by the seminars, workshops and meetings which you can attend during the four biennial days. This year’s edition of Bibu will take place May 18-21 in Helsingborg. If you are interested in visiting the festival and want to have some more information, please send a mail to my project manager Lovisa Björkman; firstname.lastname@example.org.
If we don’t meet in Helsingborg, I hope to see you in Stockholm in the fall. October 23-25 are the dates for the next edition of Swedstage. Swedstage is the opportunity to see and experience the very best of Swedish performing arts for children, youth and adults. During three days in Stockholm, we will present exclusively selected Swedish performances, able to tour and available for an international audience. The program will be published in May and the registration will open in June, but you can already find some information about the showcase festival at www.swedstage.se.
During the year, we also plan to collaborate with the Alexandrinsky Theater in St Petersburg, Russia, make a program during the Stockholm Pride Festival where performing arts and LGBT–activists can meat, coordinate seminars during the Swedish focus at the Maribor Theatre Festival in Slovenia and much much more. We are always interested in international collaborations, so feel free to contact us if you have a great idea where you think we could take part!
