New Nordics was a 4-day festival in London 18-21 March 2020 showcasing the best new Nordic plays from Denmark, Sweden, Norway, Finland, Iceland and the Faroe Islands. We worked 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 consisted 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.
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!
