The programme has been released and registration is open for the 2024 edition of the Ice Hot Nordic Dance Platform in Oslo - a collaboration between the Nordic countries where both new and established names in Nordic contemporary dance are presented.
With 130 applicants from the Swedish field, five choreographers were selected to present during the days in Oslo. Three more Swedish names are among the More More More presentations.
The Ice Hot platforms attract a large number of professionals from all continents. Hundreds of international guests as well as Nordic artists and artistic directors come to see more than twenty live performances and fifteen "More More More" pitch presentations, as well as participate in several seminars during the platform days. The goal of the Ice Hot Nordic Dance partners is to increase opportunities for international touring, work opportunities and collaboration for Nordic artists.
The jury consisted of ten people, with each partner country represented. From Sweden, Johannes Öhman, Dansens Hus Stockholm, and Erik Linghede, choreographer, were present. Everyone has the same vote and there is no veto; the only thing that can affect the selection is whether the technical conditions mean that a production can or cannot be realised. Furthermore, in connection with the open call and before the final jury meeting, each country engages a national external jury, which for Sweden this year was Karina Sarkissova, Ninos Josef and Nassim Beki.
