The Wild West – Roots and Shoots

Holstebro Festuge 10th – 18th June 2017

Holstebro Festuge is a cultural celebration by and with citizens of Holstebro and their guests! More than 200 unusual, entertaining and thought provoking events are created in the meetings between local citizens, associations, cultural institutions and 150 invited international actors, dancers, musicians and other artists. With this 10th edition of Holstebro Festuge entitled The Wild West – Roots and Shoots, we aim high. Through cultural events we rethink the Wild West as a space where the impossible becomes possible and where boundaries are broken down, when roots and shoots emerge in new and different shapes and forms: theatre on the streets, horses on the beach, music in the air, performances by the sea, theatrical wild cats and wild dogs, real centaurs and much more…
The Wild West – Roots and Shoots is a project under the European Capital of Culture – Aarhus 2017 and a part of Caravan Next, a large scale European Social Community Theatre with Nordisk Teaterlaboratorium as leading partner. Read more about Holstebro Festuge on www.odinteatret.dk
