About the theater

About the theater

Bora Bora – Dance and Visual Theater presents dance and performing arts from Denmark and the rest of the world, organizes local, national and international festivals and is a production center for the local dance environment in Aarhus.

Bora Bora’s global outlook is a natural approach to a type of performing arts that is not limited by language barriers and which has interaction and exchange across cultures as one of its most distinctive features.

With a large number of partners in various networks in Europe, we try through exchanges to show the audience the latest and freshest that is being produced within visual performing arts. At the same time, we work with these partners to create the best possible working conditions and production opportunities for a large group of Danish and international artists – including through the Bora Bora Residency Centre.

We strive to create a unique exchange of thoughts, ideas and experiences between the Aarhus audience and European artists and between the artists themselves.

Festivals are an important part of Bora Bora’s profile and work. It is on these that artists from many countries and audiences meet and exchange views, experiences and sometimes initiate long-term collaborations. In 2017, Bora Bora was among other things the host of the major international dance festival Spring Forward.

Bora Bora has existed since 1 July 2011, when the organization behind the theater Entré Scenen took over the administration of the dance stage at Brobjergskolen. The dance stage was officially opened on February 17, 2012

HeadQuarters

HeadQuarters is an oasis in Aarhus, where good music, good times and a cozy atmosphere are paramount. Every week there’s a variety of concerts with primary focus on new original music. Thursday, Friday and Saturday HQ transforms into an authentic nightclub, where one easily gets pulled back to the original discotheques where everybody would dance all night long. It is based on the idea that music is not only what you want to hear, but also what you didn’t know you wanted to hear. As a nightclub HQ has its musical offset in soul, funk and disco, which you also quickly sense when you step into the room with its 60’s and 70’s vibe.

With its relaxed atmosphere, a variety of delicious drinks at reasonable prices, comfortable cozy corners and a friendly service, HQ provides the perfect setting for a good evening.

Since HeadQuarters and Bora Bora share entrance they have made a cooperation where the cozy setting and staff of HQ forms the foyer to all of Bora Bora’s performances and events. You can relax and enjoy the atmosphere before and after every show.
