OPE-N is an OPE-N platform for OPE-N processes with OPE-N formats. It was founded by Louise Beck as a cross-disciplinary and collaborative performing arts platform that focuses on how to OPE–N frames of minds. OPE-N initiates all sorts of artistic exchanges; such as symposiums, workshops and artistic research programs, which explore how art can OPE-N for new ways of looking at the world – and vice versa: how the surrounding society can stimulate artistic expressions and bring art to life.
The aim is to develop projects that celebrate diversity and salute both our common ground and unique differences in the Nordic countries. Together with a range of partners and hundreds af artists we have so far created the following interactive events: Disturbances and Into the Void in Copenhagen, Destination Helsinki in Helsinki, and Break the Ice in Iceland.
The newest project on our OPE-N platform is The Story about a Feast an interactive performance revolving around Karen Blixen’s beautiful novel Babette’s Feast about the French refugee Babette, who brings new life in the form of one exquisite meal to a circle of starkly pious villagers. The performance will be presented in Denmark and Norway during 2018.
OPEN is the essence of OPERANORD and draws from the knowledge and experience of our sister platform.
