Production house of dance and visual theatre

Bora Bora presents, produces and co-produces national and international performances, organizes festivals, conducts artistic experiments and initiates residencies and workshops.

Through exchanges with partners in different networks across Europe, we want to show our audience the newest and freshest in visual performing art. We also work together with partners to internationalize production possibilities for a wide range of artists locally and nationally. We facilitate contact between the Aarhus audience and European artists, and between the artists in general.

Festivals are an important part of Bora Bora. Through festivals, audiences can meet artists from different countries, exchange views and experiences, and initiate long-lasting collaborations.

With the opening of Bora Bora, Entré Scenen started a new era as a production house of dance and visual theatre.

The official opening was February 17-18, 2012 with the performance, “This Door Is Too Small (for a bear)”. The “birth” of Bora Bora started a bit earlier  – July 1, 2011 – when Entré Scenen moved to Brobjergskolen and took over the dance stage under its new name, Bora Bora.

Bora Bora is supported by The Performing Arts Committee of the Danish Arts Council and The Municipality of Aarhus.

This website is created with financial support from Tuborgfondet.

Projects

Bora Bora takes part in a number of national and international projects because we wish to further the development of European performing arts, create more opportunities for the artists, and bring high-quality international art to Aarhus.

In the years 2012-2015, our main projects opened up new possibilities for producing and presenting performing art by building new creating platforms and co-producing selected works from interesting Nordic and Baltic dance and performance companies.

Aerowaves

Aerowaves is a hub for dance discovery in Europe that creates cross-border performance opportunities for emerging choreographers. The network shares resources and insights to actively enhance connections between dance artists, programmers and audiences across Europe.

Aerowaves now has partners in 33 countries. The network brings together the professional knowledge, personal insight and love for dance of 45 members. Each year in October, these partners vote for the next group of Aerowaves artists at an intensive meeting where hundreds of videos are watched and discussed.

In April 2017 Bora Bora will be presenting the annual Spring Forward Festival in Aarhus, a meeting point for the network’s partners that features performances by Aerowaves artists.
