Meet Christine at the Nuuk Nordic festival


Christine, who won the Nuuk Nordic Pitch contest – where participants were encouraged to send in their idea proposals for culture and arts projects – will be presenting her idea live during the festival. To learn when and where this will be taking place, please click here.

In preparation for this most excellent presentation we decided to have a chat with her to hear her thoughts on why she chose this project to pitch, what her aspirations are for the presentation at the Nuuk Nordic festival, and how she aims to continue to develop the idea in the future.

Can you tell us a little about yourself?

In my childhood I lived in both Denmark and Norway, so I feel that both Danish and Norwegian are my native languages. I have a great love for the performing arts, and I have a bachelor’s degree from Norges Dansehøyskole. Though my interest has always been to create good a framework for the performing arts and to come up with ideas, which is my I studied for a masters degree via Performance Design og Virksomhetsstudier at Roskilde University. The last years I’ve been working with theater and dance production in Copenhagen.

Why did you decide to participate in the Nukk Nordic Pitch contest?

I figured that it was a good opportunity for me to expand my idea, and that it’d be good for me to try and explain the idea in under two minutes. I believe that often when you dare to share your ideas, you gain something in return. If one only keeps an idea for her- or himself, then nothing happens 🙂

Why did you choose this idea to pitch?

Because it’s a project which I feel really strongly about and want to get started with. The young and elderly in our society are groups of people who both provide – and need – care, and I want to create a Nordic project that can spread happiness and create new meetings between them. I can see many perspectives in the project, which I want to continue to work with in the future.

What do you think will attract visitors at the Nuuk Nordic Festival to see your pitch live?

I’m hoping that other visitors will be curious to hear more about the idea, and that they want to share their own thoughts about how the idea can be expanded upon. The festival attracts wise people, and their options would be very precious to me. Maybe I’ll be lucky enough to meet someone who will want to participate in the project?

How do you believe that your visit to the Nuuk Nordic Festival will affect you?

I feel inspired just by reading about the lineup, so I’ll definitely be experiencing new perspectives at the festival. This is the first time I’ll be visiting Greenland, so I also look forward to experiencing Nuuk.

In what ways will you be developing your idea in the future, do you think?

Firstly, I want to find Nordic partners to cooperate with in a development workshop, where we may conduct research and dive further into the project’s themes. I believe that it is a good idea to make a pilot project, where a short show may be performed for about 10-15 minutes in front of a test audience, together with a place’s elderly and their grandchildren. For this pilot project I wish to apply to OPSTART from the Nordic Culture Fund.
