Between the 24. February and 1. March 2023, Pikene på Broen will stage Barents Spektakel in Kirkenes, Norway – an international festival consisting of contemporary art, theatre, music, debates, film, performances and a bar concept. Through these different elements the festival will again become a meeting place for everyone with an interest in the cultures and contemporary issues related to the high north.
The festival first started in 2004 and in February 2023 will transform Kirkenes into a Barents Metropolis for the 19th time. The full programme will be launched 11. January. In the meantime, you can find more info about the festival, theme and programme here: barentsspektakel.no / Facebook event / Instagram
