Helsingør Teater - Passage festival
Helsingør Teater organises PASSAGE Festival, the biggest street theatre festival in the Nordic countries. The festival takes place annually at the end of July/ beginning of August. Activities take place centrally in Helsingør as well as in the periphery of the municipalities, in natural as well as urban settings. The PASSAGE programme consists of traditional street theatre performance but also challenges the concept of street theatre by programming more exclusive performances and other activities like poetry readings and philosophical talks. Especially non-language based disciplines as circus, street theatre and contemporary dance are of great interest of the festival, as they have proven very efficient in including a diverse audience.
