The BaNd network is Baltic/Nordic contemporary performing arts platform established by eight internationally active performing art organizations from Estonia, Latvia, Lithuania, Finland, Norway and Sweden.

BaNd:expanded is a series of transdisciplinary ateliers for young performing arts professionals aimed at establishing long lasting, transdisciplinary international collaborations.

Six ateliers or LABS, one in each of the participating countries, will focus on artists’ mobility, professional training and mentoring, creative exchange and work-in progress presentations. Each atelier will have a unique theme and working format introduced by the hosting country, following a given umbrella theme – Definition of Tomorrow.

The ambition of the BaNd network is to explore what is the theatre of future and what role it could play in our rapidly changing society.
