‘After.New order’ – the Scandinavian programme

Vaba Lava is turning its gaze towards Scandinavia and the Nordic countries, involving experts in theatre from Sweden, Norway, Denmark, Iceland and Finland. The curator for the next two seasons at Vaba Lava is Norwegian actor and producer Harald T. Rosenstrøm. The ideas selected for the curator’s programme will become original or co-productions of Vaba Lava’s Tallinn and Narva theatre centres, premiering between September 2021 and July 2023.  The programm will be announced in September 2021.

Curator’s vision : ‘After.New order’

We don´t know when the pandemic will end, or to what extent it will change us. How will it change the way we understand ourselves and the world around us? How will it change the way we understand theatre and performing arts, and will the audience still need the forms we have today?

‘After.New order’ is designed to emphasise major changes. How do you make a start after life-changing events? What is the new order, and how does it work? About the projects I am looking for projects that are open to exploring both the theme and the world that we live in now, that are open to exploring the changes within people, while at the same time being open to the forms of what theatre is today. How do we interact with the audience? What has changed? The theme is meant to be open, and can emphasise all sorts of major changes in people’s lives. The focus will be Scandinavia: Sweden, Norway, Iceland and Denmark, but also Including their Nordic neighbour Finland. Projects linking the countries are welcome, but not required.
