New Nordics Festival

Bringing new voices to the UK and shining a light on Nordic theatre makers and culture, the New Nordics Festival is a thrilling five-day celebration of live and digital contemporary works from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. The festival seeks to showcase the diversity of theatre, artists and culture across the Nordic countries, with each platforming their own theatrical culture and style in an impactful and unmissable way through these premiere productions.

Presented by Cut the Cord, the festival works with emerging UK-based theatre-makers to explore what Nordic theatre is and how it can enrich UK theatre. Each day of the festival will see a play from a Nordic country as well as Q&As with the Nordic playwrights and artistic teams. The festival also includes workshops, online talks and discussions.
