Director’s Workshop

Cph Queer Theatre Festival  and The Association of Danish Stage Directors will have a workshop on Saturday 14/8 at 11-15.30 with the two directors Christoffer Berdal and Andrew Keates. Andrew Keates is an English director, internationally recognised for his political queer activist theatre. Christoffer Berdal is a Danish director who is wide-ranging in terms of genre, often directing performances that challenge society and are different from the mainstream in their expressions, although he does always stay true to the written word. Both directors are queer and curious to investigate which stories from the queer community can be included in the performing arts.

Together, they will lead a workshop for the directors involved in the Hot Meat project and also danish directors. The workshop main focus is on political theatre exchanges. You will get an up close and personal insight of both directors work methods, but also have the opportunity to bring your own work into play and in this way find new tools to take home and further develop. 

The workshop is for the members of the association, but since international artists also participate, it takes place in English.

Location: LiteraturHaus – Møllegade 7, 2200  Copenhagen 

Actors workshop

Cph Queer Theatre Festival  and The Danish Actors Guild will have a workshop the 14/8 at 11-15.30 with the world-famous Moira Finucane, who is known for her touring cabarets. The workshop will be for the actors participating in the Hot Meat project as well as actors from the Danish industry. For Moira, creating queer art signifies bringing herself into play as a queer artist in its broadest form. This is done by introducing everyday elements that fascinate and layering them with an abstraction that challenges both the artist and the audience. In this way, you are ensured that there is always something new at stake in each moment. Moira is also an expert in sustainable performance arts by her creations of amazing live stream theatre. 

The workshop is for the members of the guild, but since international artists will also participate, it takes place in English.

Location: Folketeatret Nørregade 39 – 1165 Copenhagen K.

Writer’s Workshop

Cph Queer Theatre Festival and The Association of Danish Playwrights will have a workshop on Tuesday 17/8 at 10-14.30 with playwright Tomas Lagerman Lundme and director Christoffer Berdal. Tomas has written a lot of queer drama for both television and theater and he writes queer poetry. Tomas is a poet – very interested in language and his work is based on his own personal story, on the life he has lived and lives today. He observes the world we live in from his own queer perspective. Gender and sexuality are fluid according to Tomas.

Christoffer Berdal is a Danish director who is wide-ranging in terms of genre, often directing performances that challenge society and are different from the mainstream in their expressions, although he does always stay true to the written word. 

Berdal finds it very important to create room in the performance arts for queer stories and queer inclusion. Together they have created the performance Hate Crime, which will be playing during the Copenhagen 2021 WorldPride at Teater Republique.

The workshop is for the members of the association, but since international artists also participate, it takes place in English.

Location: Literatur Haus Møllegade 7 DK, 2200 København
