NORDWIND was founded in 2006 by Ricarda Ciontos and since then has continuously grown into a platform and festival. In the beginning, the festival was dedicated exclusively to the Nordic countries, but by now the festival functions more as a platform for the encounter between Nordic and international artists. In the 2017 edition of NORDWIND, productions from abroad and co-productions with artists from the Arctic region, Nordic countries, African continent and Berlin and Hamburg will be shown at six different performance venues: Kampnagel, SAVVY Contemporary, Silent Green, Studio 1 in the Art Centre Bethanien, Galerie Wedding and the Theatre of Nations in Moscow. Nordwind will also cooperate with the KW Institute for Contemporary Art for certain projects.
