A STATEMENT IN RELATION TO COVID-19
It is with a heavy heart that we have to say we will not be going ahead with New Nordics Festival this week. Following the latest Government announcement, we and The Yard have made a joint decision not to continue our plans and postpone the festival indefinitely.
With the exponential escalation of this public health emergency our responsibility lies with our incredible team who have worked so hard on this project, insuring their health and safety comes first. We are heartbroken we will not be able to share this festival with you and celebrate the incredible work of the writers, directors, actors and creative teams from the Nordic countries and the UK. With the current conditions we are facing around the world, we will show solidarity with our UK and international friends, and although we will not be presenting any performances this week, we hope you will join us in celebrating international connections even if we can’t physically do it together.
We are very much hoping to bring the festival back when the time is right and will be keeping you all updated on the development of this.
We just want to say a huge thank you to everyone who has been part of this festival, for sharing all your ideas with us, for being so open and supportive of international work, and for sticking by us to the very end. Thank you to all of our supporters and partners for enabling us to make this work and encouraging more international collaborations.
Our team has created a beautiful festival together and we look forward to the day we can share it with our audiences, in better times. It definitely won’t be the end of New Nordics.
Our thoughts go out to all of those who are affected in London, around the UK and across the world. Stay safe.
