11. April 2018
Just came home from a beautiful Easter holidays at BIRCA – and we had a big snowstorm – in April! But the fire was on and you could remind yourself that spring is coming somehow soon also in Denmark. And the sun came and left this amazing landscape.
We could not do any outdoor work. So work was done on indoors with development of ideas and new programs for my company and BIRCA. Realized I need to regain my role a creative producer – developing new projects together with the artists and finding the funding, branding and selling. Ready to work in collaboration with 4-6 Danish artists more permanently. And then I have developed programs for Artistic Entrepreneurship and how to sell your work internationally. Very exciting times waiting ahead.
But most of all, it’s soon BIRCA time. With all the peace and joy the island brings. Easter inspired me to make a little video about what’s waiting for you, based on photos from last year. Share it with friends and spread the message about BIRCA pleasures. Spring brings this program (there are still space and you can read more on BIRCAs web):
29/4- 13/5 Island Connect Mallorca residency – link
18-21/5 Yoga Retreat with Mette Lønhardt – link
23-27/5 Capacity Building workshop on Artistic Entrepreneurship – Link
The Capacity Building workshop is the first of its kind and it’s especially cheap in May because we want to test our material – if you want to join the first ever event Sofie Haag and I do together – with participation by Pia Buchardt – so it’s soon time to commit.
And we have found the two winners of our Island Connect Croatia: the Danish part is Gunilla Lind Danseteater, who will be working on a project where nature meet the body in The natural Vs The Unnatural. From Croatia it will also be a choreographic project under direction of Tatjana Vukadinović, who works with nature in contact improvisation. Two young dancegroups – great times ahead! We look forward to seeing them at BIRCA in September, where they will also be a part of our program for Bornholm Cultureweek. But first they go to Croatia in June.
Embrace the spring
