With 150 to 200 performances at each festival, it is one of Northern Europe’s largest living street theatre festivals, presenting performances in the streets, at the harbour, on the beach and in the surrounding areas. The ambition is to create a festival that is diverse, accessible and enjoyable for everyone.

Chicks is a speechless show is full of physical comedy that makes all ages laugh. PASSAGE Planet, a platform at the festival that addresses the human situation in connection with the climate crisis, will be part of this year's festival. The platform aims to create space for sharing thoughts with each other and inspire hope with events such as the Dinner Conversation on Climate and Biodiversity Crises, hosted by Susanne Danig, on questions such as how can we even find visions for new ways of living together that do not disrupt the balance of the Earth as well as the work “SOLASTALGIA – Book of Songs“ by Madeleine Kate McGowan, an audience-engaging choir work that invites reflection on climate-related grief.
