EUTOPIA INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL

FULL MOON EVENT
Presented by Aarhus 2017 and Aarhus Municipality

Theatre, debate, dance, new circus, music and food from across the world. EUTOPIA INTERNATIONAL FESTIVAL is a multicultural festival that is all about meetings. Meeting art, meeting each other, meeting other cultures, meeting the known, meeting the unknown, and, most importantly, meeting oneself through eye-opening experiences. What could be a more natural setting for such meetings than Gellerup, where more than 80 nationalities live in close proximity?

During the five-day festival, Eutopia 2017 brings artists from 23 different countries to Gellerup. You can experience ”Hamlet Short” directed by Christoffer Berdal with the actors Thure Lindhardt and Chadi Abdul-Karim, sharing the role as Hamlet. The performance interprets Shakespeare’s classic in private homes in Gellerup. Additionally, you can see ten Denmark premieres under the festival: Circo el Grito (Belgium) with the performance “Johann Sebastian Circus”, the Lebanese choreographer Omar Rajeh and the dance group MaHa from Teheran in “Zaafran” as well as a drum performance by the Japanese Taiko-drummer Ichitaro.

During the day go backstage where a number of artists and debaters meet in conversations about themselves, their art and life in our modern, multicultural world. Performances will take place outdoors, in tents, on the EUTOPIA Stage and in private homes across Gellerup. Evenings will feature first performances and Danish premieres of international shows, leaving audiences with time for contemplation, reflection and a little chuckle at nightfall.
