Snapsting – Rethink your Audience

Presented by Snapsting Viborg, Carte Blanche and Kulturprinsen and others

Participatory and unusual experiences for the whole family. We meet in Viborg to a fantastic week filled with art, culture, debate, sports, party and great music.

In the beautiful rooms of the Old City Hall at Stænderpladsen a culture house is popping up – a melting pot of cultural meetings across performance theatre, installation, storytelling, technology, light and sound. Theatre Carte Blanche and a handful of international artists moves into the house for a month and creates performances especially made for the place. Moreover, the culture house will be an open platform into which local and cultural innovators can contribute with their own projects, share their ideas, visions and experiences. You are able to meet all sorts of cultural projects: a labyrinth-performance, a site-specific staging of the city, a wine-bar, an aesthetic playroom for families, a lounge-installation created by and for young people as well as a series of talks and presentations. The culture house is popping up for audiences in June and will culminate during the festive week of Viborg SNAPSTING and boom – it’s gone a again.

EUROPEAN PLAYGROUND – Snapsting for børn: 18th-25th June
The park Borgvold in Viborg will be buzzing with life, joy, movement, singing, music, and dancing – there will be no audience, everyone is an active participant! All children aged 0-12 in schools and daycare in Viborg are invited to participate in co-creative workshops together with children and artists from the Nordic countries. Children will challenge each other as artist assistants. Everyone is welcome to participate in events and workshops across generations, experience lunch-box talks on topics that are meaningful for the children as regards the celebration of the Reformation. On Saturday June 24, the week will culminate in a great family concert at the Cathedral Square in Viborg. Children from Iceland, Norway, Sweden, and Latvia will join each other and recreate the five town gates of Viborg – entrances to the future.

The celebration of 2017 in Viborg starts on June 2 from 16h00 at the POP-UP CULTURE HOUSE with a common FULLMOON OPENING – a festive marking of Viborg as a part of Aarhus 2017. On this day you can get a foretaste of some of all the activities popping up during the next month, and get a peek into the process of transforming the empty space into a vibrating culture house for the whole family.
