POP-UP CULTURE HOUSE
In the beautiful rooms of the Old City Hall at Stænderpladsen in Viborg, a culture house popped up in 2017 – a melting pot of cultural meetings across theatre, installation, storytelling, technology, light, sound…
Carte Blanche and a handful of international artists moved into the house and created four performances, specifically made for the place and the city. The culture house was also an open platform into which local and cultural innovators contributed their own projects and shared their ideas, visions and experiences.
Here the audience met all sorts of cultural projects: a labyrinth performance, a site-specific staging of the city, a wine-bar, an aesthetic playroom for families, a lounge-installation created by and for young people as well as a series of talks and presentations.
The culture house popped up in June and culminated during the festive week of Viborg SNAPSTING.
Carte Blanches four productions were:
IN THE OLD HEART OF THE CITY
A sensorial labyrinth-performance in the basement of old City Hall
An à la carte menu of mini-performances
An immersive performance installation
The history of the POP-UP CULTURE HOUSE – An installation and interactive museum
POP-UP CULTURE HOUSE was the culmination of Carte Blanche’s project “The Art of Listening” which was the theatre’s contribution to European Capital of Culture Aarhus 2017.
