Nordic Pulse is new of this year, but the concept and model builds on Norway Now, developed by Performing Arts Hub Norway (PAHN). The concept is now being further developed into a Nordic version together with our partners in Nordics Combined .
The Nordics Combined network consists together with PAHN of Dance and Circus Info Finland, The Swedish Cultural Council, the Danish Arts Foundation and Performing Arts Centre Iceland. We collaborate on joint Nordic initiatives on international platforms, and Nordic Pulse can be seen as a dynamic development between these Nordic countries. This year’s version will be presenting works from Sweden, Iceland, Denmark and Norway.
We look forward to present highlights from the current independent performing arts scene within the Nordic region!
