The DEN Platform

The DEN – Dance Expo Norway is a platform for sharing Norwegian dance art. By creating an arena for performances, studio performances, pitches and networking, the DEN contributes to promoting works by dance artists living in Norway to foreign promoters, festivals and stages.

In October 2021, CODA invites experts from all over Europe to Oslo, where we will show what is happening within Norwegian dance art today. The platform runs over three days, and includes an exciting and wide program.

The program has been curated by the artistic directors and producers from CODA, Dansens Hus, Black Box teater, Riksscenen, Bærum Kulturhus og Den Norske Opera & Ballett.
