The international students can stay at the Art Culture Center in an open creative atmosphere in which it is easy to be inspired by the island's magic & overwhelming nature, from wonderfully long beaches to dramatic high cliffs. The farm is situated at the island Bornholm, one of the most beautiful magic islands of Denmark situated in the Baltic Sea, central for the Baltic-and Nordic countries as well as Poland and Germany. Max 3 hour’s from Copenhagen, with direct connection.

Nordic School of Butoh is an independent, nonprofit, alternative school for dance, body and performance in Copenhagen.
The organisation of the school is a formal structure with a board approved by the Copenhagen Municipal Cultural Department, and an economy based on private fonds, the Municipality of Copenhagen, and first of all the workshop fees of the students.

The school is not entitled to receive Danish `SU`( the State Education Grant), but the situation might be different in other countries for students outside Denmark.
Students living in Copenhagen may ask the municipality to support the expenses of the education. Students from other European countries have a good chance to apply different foundations for support during their studies. Students might ask the Sleipner foundation for support of a 4 month study ( 1 module ), or a workshop and summer camp. Also 'Teater og Dans I Norden' might help your travel expenses if you are a dancer or actor or a young artist.

We would like to help you with invitation and documentation.

Scandinavian grants and useful addresses:
