Today we are highlighting Airport one of the latest pitch projects introduced to our delegates during the New York 2015 ISPA Congress. Airport is a theatrical work which takes place in an airport created by and created by Kristján Ingimarsson and produced by Neander (Denmark) and Reykjavik City Theater (Iceland) in co-production with REPUBLIQUE (Denmark).
There has been some great development since the pitch presentation in January. Hear directly from the producer of Airport, Kristján Ingimarsson/Neander:
The premiere of AIRPORT is set!
We are happy to announce that our upcoming production AIRPORT will be premiered November the 12. 2015. It will happen at the Republique theatre in Copenhagen, the same theatre where we premiered our success show BLAM in 2012. Republique has also stepped in as a co-producer for AIRPORT instead of the National theatre in Iceland. Due to logistic problems we decided it would be best to produce the show in Denmark instead of Iceland. Airport will be visiting Iceland as a guest performance instead.
Be a part of AIRPORT
We want to thank you for the great response and interest we got at the ISPA meeting in New York. We just received a grant from the Wilhelm Hansen Foundation in Denmark but are still working on finding the last 40.000 USD. Therefore we would like to welcome 2 new co-commissioners to support AIRPORT with 20.000 USD and become a part of what we believe will be a mind-blowing project.
ISPA in Malmö /Copenhagen
We look forward to seeing you soon in Malmö/Copenhagen. We can start talking touring possibilities in 2016-17. Kristján Ingimarsson will be attending the conference on May the 28th. Please don´t hesitate to contact us for any inquiries to learn more about Airport, touring or the future projects of Kristján Ingimarsson / Neander.
