We, the jury, are very happy to present the artist of Ice Hot Oslo 2024. From a record-breaking number of applicants, we have chosen 39 artist which we believe is one of the strongest Ice Hot programs ever!
The selection process has been a fascinating journey, and it is a profound privilege to work on a Pan-Nordic project, including the Arctic region, and to think of the impact of dance art for the whole region. In the forefront of our selections was how to make dance sustainable both environmentally and for the work and production of dance itself.
This year the jury was expanded with selected artist members to help broaden the programming discussions, and every short list was discussed with national advisors to expand our reach, knowledge, and gaze.
Ice Hot should be an important generator for connections and actions toward a stronger ecosystem for dance in the Nordic and Arctic region. The selection process has been a fruitful challenge for all partners and colleagues, and with an ambition to create a common language and common goals, we invite you all to meet our artist, get inspired by their art, and become a part of the development of dance in the north.
The artistic selections for Ice Hot Oslo 2024 are made by a jury consisting of ten jury members, two from each Nordic country. The jury members are responsible for the final selections in collaboration with the platform organizer.
