Open Stage

We realize how important it is to be able to try out ideas and present your work to a supportive audience. During Open Stage, we provide choreographers and performers with the possibility to present work (maximum of 10 minutes) to an audience of friends, colleagues, and the interested public.

Our theatre space has basic amenities for light and sound so we can ensure that the evening looks and sounds brilliant. The atmosphere is informal, and the space will remain open after the presentations to chat and discuss.

The next Open Podium is taking place on 16 November 2024. It's no longer possible to registrate for this edition. Would you like to come and watch? Click here for more information and tickets.
