Young Swedstage 2022

Young Swedstage 2022!

Since 2012 Swedstage has been arranged in Stockholm every other year to present the best of Swedish performing arts for international agents. The 2022 edition, however, was presented during Bibu – the Swedish Performing Arts Biennial for Youth and the ASSITEJ Artistic Gathering, May 17 – 22, under the name of Young Swedstage. Young Swedstage focuses on marketing well-chosen Swedish performing arts for children and young people to an international audience. Eight productions was presented live in Helsingborg, all able to tour and available for an international audience.

”The goal is to give more swedish productions and producers the opportunity to find their path to international scenes and festivals”, says Niclas Malmcrona, general manager of ASSITEJ Sweden, one of the organizers of Swedstage together with Swedish Performing Arts Coalition.

If you weren’t able to visit Sweden in May you now have the possibility to see specially filmed presentations of all selected productions here on the Swedstage web-site. Eight productions ranging from theatre and dance to cirkus and interactive experiences are presented by their creators mixed with images from each production. Essential information about each production is also available as well as contact information to the companies.

What are we looking for?

welcome to a webinar about international touring

In the framework of Young Swedstage we´d like to invite you to a conversation about international touring with Swedish creators and producers and international festival directors, programmers, and practitioners.

We´ll talk about what is topical, passable, taboo, and interesting in different countries, contexts, and traditions. What differs TYA in Sweden, Europe, America, or Africa? How do we ensure presence of the unexpected? What are our fellow programmers and festival directors looking for when programming festivals and venues?

Invited to take a lead in the conversation are from Sweden Viktoria Dalborg, artistic director of Kompani Giraff, and Sophia Segrell, artistic director of Dockteatern Tittut.

Joining us from outside Sweden are Eibhlin de Barra, director at Young at Art/Belfast Children’s Festival, Boomer Stacey, Executive Director at Professional Association of Canadian Theatres (PACT) and former executiv director of IPAY, Gerhard Verfaille, director of Cultuurcentrum Hasselt and artistic director of Krokusfestival and Etoundi Zeyang, artistic director of FESCATEJ in Cameroon.

The discussion will be led by Niklas Borefors, CEO of Bibu – the Swedish performing arts biennial for children and youth, and Mario Castro Sepulveda, producer at Ögonblickteatern and board member of ASSITEJ Sweden. Both Niklas and Mario were part of the committee selecting the eight productions for Young Swedstage 2022.

The webinar is introduced by Niclas Malmcrona, director of ASSITEJ Sweden.

The webinar takes place on Zoom, Monday November 28th, at 15:00 (3 pm) CET and last for 75 minutes.
