The New Institutions
The new institutions see themselves as young and innovative. They are immensely important to ‘emerging artists’. One of the self-imposed tasks of the new institutions is to enable access and to advance political and aesthetic discourse with a certain radicality. However, Carte Blanche (founded in 1988), Kampnagel (1993), Skanes Danstheater (1995) and Club Guy & Roni (2002) have all ‘come of age’. They embody the spirit of the independent scene, but are nevertheless institutions with production facilities, a repertoire, salaried staff and regular funding. Small yet large, poor yet rich, demanding yet careful. Four artistic directors and a choreographer who is a frequent partner of new institutions talk about their goals and needs, and about how you can stay flexible despite fixed structures, and stay hungry despite better facilities.
