Dear Audience

It is quiet at the Dance House at the moment, but we don’t and can’t sit still!

We live in surreal times. Since March 12th we have temporarily pressed the pause button for all physical meetings between artists and the audience. We did this to ensure the safety of our employees, artists and you the audience.

The corona virus hits the Norwegian and International art sector hard. For many arts organizations, companies, artists and freelancers, this situation comes at the top of the already vulnerable situation for everyone working in the art field in general. My thoughts go out to everyone right now in this difficult time.

In line with ongoing infection prevention considerations, orders from Norwegian authorities and international restrictions, Dansens Hus has had to cancel all planned performances, events and sammenhenger activities until end of May. We are in the process to reschedule the canceled performances as much as possible to Spring 2021.

At Dansens Hus we believe that dance has the power to connect people across boarders, languages and cultures. It moves us, opens our minds and deepens our understanding of what it is to be human. Dansens Hus is a place where art and audience meet, a place where the investigation and realizations of ideas are taking place. A place where we together experience, think, feel, listen, watch, move and get moved. There is no more important time than now for us to come together, and if we can't do this physically, we can do it - temporary- virtually!

We are currently working on creating new ways of connecting with you, audiences and dance community, by sharing and creating alternative content over the coming months: digital ánd analogue (with the necessary social distance).

We will keep you updated with our plans on our website and newsletters or follow us on social media.

I can speak on behalf of the full Dansens Hus team and wish you all the strength and courage during this special period and we look forward to a coronavirus-free time in which our house is once again full of activities on and off the stage!

Stay healthy and take care of each other at a time when solidarity will be needed.
