The DEN – Dance Expo Norway

The place to discover new dance from Norway

The DEN seminar for producers


The DEN – Dance Expo Norway is an industry event initiated by CODA Oslo International Dance Festival in collaboration with 12 other dance institutions for the dance field, organizers and producers in dance arts.

The project lasts for three years and has two main elements:

  • A platform for Norwegian artist to showcase their works and ideas to national and international organizers and producers

  • Seminars and skill development for producers and self-producing dance artists

The seminar programme runs over three years and is held at festivals across Norway. The program can be followed as a comprehensive academic course, or you can attend the seminars separately. Those who follow the entire series will receive course certificates upon completion of the course series in 2021.

The organizers behind The DEN make up a large part of the dance field in Norway and are a targeted initiative to strengthen the industry and provide viewing opportunities for dance artists from Norway.
