NORDEN - the nordic arts festival

International musicians and a wide range of workshops and activities at NORDEN

From Norway we may announce the post-punk band The Modern Times: In an exuberant feeling between youthful ignorance and gripping satire, singer Magnus Vold Jensen leads through the album "Algorhythmic Dance Music". After their 2017 debut never left Norway, Black Pop Records has unleashed the band across Europe in 2019, complete with unbridled live shows and hit record.

Full-blooded musician and one-man band Bror Gunnar Jansson from Sweden knows what moves people: and that is gruesome true crime. On his new album "They Found My Body In A Bag", released in 2019, he sings about real cases that happened in Scandinavia. Coupled with his garage sound with a mix of blues, country and folk, he brings his songs to the festival stage in Schleswig this summer!

Musical is singing, dancing and acting and above all everything at the same time. The MASH! Musical Workshop is for everyone who wants to try something new in this genre or who wants to do musicals together again and have fun after the long pandemic. Singer and musical director Claudia Piehl has been putting musicals on stage with a wide variety of people for 25 years and has been leading the Musical-Academy Schleswig-Holstein (MASH!) for three years, which has made it its mission to build and perform new musicals. The MASH! Musical Workshop will take place on 05.09.2021. MASH! will present the musical "The White Horse Rider" on Aug. 29, 2021.

Comedians say he is a poetry slammer, slammers claim he is a comedian and psychologists see him as an interesting research subject. Tristan Qi, who was born in Pinneberg, never wanted to choose sides, and this is reflected in his solo program. Under the motto "Smoke Horsehair Everyday", he combines his poetry slam lyrics and stand-up skills to create a funny surreal world where pot-smoking sheep sit in saunas and people ride alpacas across the streets. We look forward to humor and poetry in the Culture Tent.
NORDPOP - Your Local Music Weekend
The pandemic has hit cultural life hard, especially the area of live music. The makers of the NORDEN Festival have taken this as an opportunity to offer the local music scene from Hamburg and Schleswig-Holstein a stage with a new format: NORDPOP as part of the NORDEN Festival from 26 to 29 August 2021.
Global warming, rising sea levels and environmental pollution are the issues that preoccupy society and politics and draw masses of young people onto the streets. There is a demand to finally implement measures so that the politically agreed climate goals are achieved instead of focusing on sitting out and discussing climate adaptation.
For the festival year 2021, NORDEN - The Nordic Arts Festival is again looking for ambassadors for the cultural festival. This year, even more than in previous years, we are looking forward to support from the NORDEN community and to many messages from Northern Germany, Denmark and the whole world ...

Under the star of the German-Danish friendship: Border-crossing cultural program
