Guiding principles

Bora Bora presents, produces and co-produces national and international dance performances, organizes festivals, conducts artistic experiments and initiatives residencies and workshops.

Through exchanges with partners in different networks across Europe, we want to show our audience the newest and freshest in visual performing art. We also work together with partner to internationalize production possibilities for a wide range of artists locally and nationally. We facilitate contact between the Aarhus audience and European artists, and between the artists in general.

Festivals are an important part of Bora Bora. Through festivals, audiences can meet artists from different countries, exchange views and experiences, and initiate long-lasting collaborations.
