DEEP DIVE ACTIVITIES
We have challenged the international artists to take a deep dive down in their own practice – and to open up to all curious souls!
This has resulted in a line of exciting workshops and lectures from monday to friday at AFUK under the headline DEEP DVE ACTIVITIES.
The Critics Lab is created in collaboration with Rie Hammer/iScene and Monna Dithmer. Here danish-speaking participates can improve their ability to give professional critic of dance, physical theatre and New Circus.
C!CAF is supported by Statens Kunstfonds Projektstøtteudvalg for Scenekunst, Kultur- og Fritidsudvalget, Københavns Kommune, Spar Nord Fonden, Østerbro Lokalpulje and Nordea-fonden.
