Street Cut

Næstved’s International Festival of Street Theatre

We and our partner, Grønnegades Kaserne Cultural Center, have with a bleeding heart decided to cancel STREET CUT 2020.

 We considered that while the current guidelines for reopening theaters in Denmark allow us to play for a seated audience in a fenced area, the guidelines do not allow us to create everything that also belongs to a festival. Here we think of interaction between artists and the audience; theater performances and mobile events in the city; festival grounds with - beer - water and street food stalls, playground and live music between performances; artist café where Danish and foreign artists can hang out and exchange experiences and get inspiration. Faster Cools Cake Table with Faster Cools Foam Orchestra, crazy waiters and free coffee and cake for the audience who were on the program this year would also be a “no go” and likewise the swing concert on Saturday night with pre-dance lessons. Added to this was the uncertainty as to whether the foreign artists would be able to come up with this at all.

 A lot of time and resources have been spent on making a great program this year and we hope we can persuade the foreign artists from France, Italy, Spain and Germany to be part of the program in STREET CUT 2021 that will be run in weekend August 20-22.

 

STREET CUT is an annual recurring event organized by Dansk Rakkerpak & Faster Cool and Grønnegades Kaserne Kulturcenter in association. The festival offers a program of artists and comedians from abroad together with the best Danish street theaters and contemporary circus groups. Performances take place in Næstved city center and pedestrian streets and at the cultural center, where there is also a festival venue with children's activities, street kitchens and events - in addition, there are a few individual "pointers" in the municipality.
