In the 2016 edition of the SAND Festival we invite you to join us in exploring Interdisciplinarity in performing arts for young people. With interdisciplinary we refer to artistic expressions that explore and experiment with form, space, scenography, movement, technological and medial elements. We want to look into performing arts that challenge genre structures and experiment with multiple artistic forms of expression.
The artistic programme for SAND 2016 will consist of innovative artists and performances which in ground-breaking ways open up the understanding of what performing arts for young people can be and become. Thus providing room for new experiences.
The festival will as usual offer a broad professional programme suitable for international delegates. A wide range of workshops, seminars and talks to engage and include professionals in the field will be on offer. The programme will address issues in the field of interdisciplinary performing arts, and offer in-depth meetings with artists and experts. Participants will be able to actively explore and discuss the subjects at hand, and the professional programme will be relevant for both artists, researchers and students of arts and pedagogy.
We look forward to inviting both audiences and professionals to Kristiansand in September!
The complete programme will be launched in June – stay tuned!
