Aaben Dans

Aaben Dans is a regional dance theatre, based in Roskilde Municipality just 30 km outside of Copenhagen.

The theatre produces two new performances every year whereas at least one is for the young audience. The performances are showed in our venue in Roskilde, before they tour a lot, both nationally and internationally.

Most performances are created by choreographer and artistic leader Thomas Eisenhardt and director Catherine Poher, but Aaben Dans also invites in new choreographers to create work.

Aaben Dans works in many different levels with outreach, education and teaching alongside with arranging residencies, open labs showing upcoming choreographers and the biannual international festival for the young audiences SWOP.

Aaben Dans has an open-minded approach to dance and movement and wants to move people physically and emotionally in all ages.
