Expanding Territories

Expanding Territories is funded by the support of EU's Leonardo da Vinci programme.

This is an expansive European symposium consisting of four intense workshops, lectures and debates for professional performing artists who seek to research and determine their own creativity and conditions of work!

How do we strengthen our curiosity and artistic courage? How do you motorize your own artistic production and knowledge production?

The workshops will investigate different artistic approches and processes related to developing new ideas and new ways of working and will be led by director Caroline McSweeney (Ireland/Denmark), choreographer Taavet Jensen (Estonia), director Daniel Wetzel (Germany), and writer/director Ant Hampton (England).

Expanding territories is an event that gives the artist a unique opportunity to meet and work with colleges from other countries. An event where the focus is on the process and where there are no expectations towards the product.

KHIO International Acting festival - an international meeting of acting methods and approaches - will take place at the same time. The workshop participants will have the opportunity to meet Lenard Petit from Michael Chekov Acting Studio, New York, and the Norwegian choreographer Jo Strømgren.

Working language

The working language will be English.


A maximum of 50.

DOCH and StDH offer 18 Swedish participants free travel, hostel/hotel and lunch (maximum 3 000 SEK).
