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 were 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.
