Ice Hot – Nordic Dance

Posted on October 5, 2010

The first Ice Hot – Nordic Dance Platform will be held in Stockholm on December 1–4, presenting Nordic contemporary dance to an international audience of programmers, artistic directors, agents and the public.

Organised by Dansens Hus in Sweden, Dance Info Finland, Dansens Hus in Norway and Dansescenen in Denmark, Nordic Dance Platform is planned to continue as a biennial, with a new host country each time. The 21 performances, chosen by an international jury, include works by the Cullberg Ballet, Carte Blanche and Helsinki Dance Company, and will be accompanied by presentations, discussions and seminars. See nordicdanceplatform.com for the complete programme.
