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.

Also available free of charge and without accreditation in live stream at the Tanzkongress.NITEhotel.
