NOBA is getting ready to welcome you to Tartu!

The next NOBA meeting will take place in Tartu, Estonia on April 17th-19th 2015. Save the dates!

NOBA Tartu will offer a concentrated range of seminars, workshops and performances, connected in context and providing a chance of gaining experience and knowledge on creating dance for young audiences. Anne Eknes (NO), Joan van der Mast (NL) and Erik Kaiel (US/NL) will host workshops and seminars about going beyond the confines of the stage with dance art for young audience. ‎

In addition to the seminars and workshops there will be performances connecting to and bouncing off each other. NOBA open call winner Music from Movement (We GO, Denmark) will start the performance program. We are also happy to host Finnish company Glims&Gloms Dance Company’s papulaBOX, Erik Kaiel’s No Man is an Island and Estonian choreographer Renate Keerd’s KAMA. And of course, NOBA participants will also have the great opportunity to join Festival School Dance (Koolitants) showings during Saturday and Sunday evenings. There you can have a look at Estonia’s most popular dance festival for children and youth, a festival that just celebrated its 20th birthday!  Last but not least, Joan van der Mast is moderating a panel discussion after School Dance evening showings. So it is going to be a three-day festival full of new ideas, practice and learning from sharing and exchange.

The NOBA Tartu team will be glad to help you with anything from time schedules to local accommodation bookings. ‎We recommend you arrive to Tallinn on April 16th, spend the night in Tallinn and travel by train or bus to Tartu in the morning on 17th. NOBA program will end around 16:00 on April 19th, so you have time to travel to Tallinn and take an evening flight home around 4 hours later. There will be Festival School Dance showings on that evening also, so you are of course more than welcome to stay overnight and leave on Monday, Aprill 20th if you want to!

For registered participants there is no participation fee. Registration will include 4 performances on April 17th at 13:00, 14:00 and 19:00 (double bill).
