New Nordics is a week-long festival in London in March 2020 showcasing the best new Nordic plays from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. We are working with emerging theatre-makers from the UK and abroad to explore what Nordic theatre and culture is and how it can enrich theatre in the UK.
The festival will consist of a play from each of the Nordic countries, each led by a creative team of emerging directors, designers and actors chosen for the festival. All the plays will receive a staged UK premiere with one performance as part of the six-day festival. At the end of the festival, Cut the Cord will host a day of talks and workshops around the plays, Nordic theatre, and making Nordic work more accessible in the UK.
We think it’s time to shine a light on new Nordic plays, modern Nordic theatre and Nordic approaches in the UK. And what a perfect way to do this, engaging some of the most exciting London-based theatre-makers in the world’s theatre capital!
