Programming at Dansens Hus

Next application deadline will be in August 2024. TBA.


Dear dance artists.

Dansens Hus would love to receive inquiries for inclusion on its programme from Norwegian choreographers and choreographers living and working in Norway. These are reviewed jointly by Artistic Director Stine Nilsen and the Artistic Council, which is made up of selected Norwegian and international advisers who are experts in Norwegian and contemporary dance.

The Artistic Council meets twice a year, when it carefully reviews the applications received and then presents its recommendations, which the Artistic Director then uses when drawing up the artistic programme.
Application deadlines for the Artistic Council are synchronised with those of the Norwegian Cultural Fund and Audio and Visual Fund.

You can apply for:
- letter of intent for a production that is still in the pipeline, or which has applied for funding
- inclusion on the programme as a guest artist with a finished production

The Artistic Council is made up of:
Stine Nilsen: Artistic Director at Dansens Hus.
Other members will be announced in due course.

Application (form)
Due to the international nature of the Artistic Council, we kindly request that you submit your application in English.
You can find the application form here.

Please attach the following to the completed form:
1. Project description – no more than 1 A4 page*
2. A short biography of the contributory dancers and artistic team – no more than 1 A4 page
3. A short Curriculum Vitae of the choreographer.

* If necessary, you may submit the project description as an oral presentation of no more than two minutes in Vimeo or YouTube format.

Because the new Artistic Director will step into the position on 1 August 2024, projects which have applied previously may apply again in this round.
After this date, applications which have been reviewed by this Artistic Council will not be reviewed again.

If you have any questions, please contact Saskia Wieringa:

Kind regards,
Stine Nilsen
