IKARUS STAGE ARTS is an international performance group and platform for artistic exploration directed by Carolina Pizarro and Luis Alonso, Odin Teatret actors. We are a part of NTL – Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium, in Holstebro, Denmark since 2017. We are a group of performers dedicated to explore different strategies of scenic creation, always using our daily training as a bridge to it. Our aim is to help develop autonomy, creativity and the capacity to intervene in our society through art.
Among the wide range of activities we organize, it is possible to find meetings with art professionals and masters from all over the world, “Summer day” camps for children, workshops, theatrical concerts for families, street parades and performances. We seek to bring our work to places and people who do not normally have access to theatre. This aim has taken us to perform in some unusual places such as Arts Galleries, factories and the elderly home , the refugee centre and the women protection centre of Holstebro.
However our activities are not only limited to Holstebro. We have also performed in Landsskuet Herning, Kulturmødet Mors and ARoS Aarhus Art Museum and some of our members are currently developing personal projects in Guinea Bissau, Argentina, Colombia, Ecuador and China.
We have recently been invited to the WUZHEN THEATRE FESTIVAL (Oct- Nov 2019) to participate in the nonstop Outdoor Carnival in the ancient streets of Wuzhen (China) with our theatrical concerts and to the 1st Hispanic American International Festival of Rhode Island (USA), with the performance “Te duele”.
Among our members there are performers from Argentina, Chile, China, Colombia, Denmark, Ecuador, France, Great Britain, Guinea-Bissau, India, Italy, Korea, Mexico, Peru, Portugal, Puerto Rico, Romania, Russia, Spain, Slovakia, Sweden, Taiwan, Turkey, USA and Venezuela.
