What is Junge Hunde?

A Junge Hund is a young and up-and-coming professional performing artist with great talent who’s on the brink of a breakthrough. But not quite yet. The main reason for the festival’s existence is to help these artist further towards their artistic goals, and to create contact with a greater audience both nationally and internationally. There is also room for artists who want to put something new to the test, but experience a lack of network, competence, or merely a platform from which one can try out and examine one’s ideas.

The main focus of the European festival Junge Hunde Festival lies on the participants and their opprtunity for networking. We can offer workshops, master classes, brass talks, process analysis, academic feedback, arrangements and much much more. Every participant gets to perform twice during the festival.

Thank you all for six grrrrreat festivals!

The last Junge Hunde Festival to be hosted by us took place October 18th-27th 2012 in collaboration with the new production center in Aarhus – Godsbanen – and the theme of the 2012 festival was interdisciplinary performing arts.

We would like to thank all participants, partners, volunteers and audience members for helping us make our festivals barking successes with plenty of performances/activities within the genres: Dance, performance, films, installations and cross over projects.
