Description

Imagination and nature come together in one of Scandinavia's biggest annual cultural festivals held in Aarhus since 1965. The city is surrounded by woods and bordered by beaches, and the program incorporates the inspiration of nature into art. And it is amidst trees and beaches several hundred performances and events take place. Art is defined as many things, and celebrated within a wide range of disciplines, including drama, opera, ballet and dance, classical and contemporary music, sport, exhibitions, film and video. Previous performers have included Birgit Nilsson, The Rolling Stones, Simon Rattle and Gunter Grass, though up and coming artists are included. To best generate talk about the intersection of art and life, the festival focuses on a broad annual theme, such as ""motion,"" ""open,"" and ""interaction."" "
