The Nordic Drama Train
In June 2014, the Danish ITI is hosting the Nordic Performing Arts Days as part of the presidency of the Nordic Theatre Union (NTU) in the same year. During these days, the Nordic Drama Train will make its first stop. The Train is a way of promoting Nordic playwrights and every second year, a national jury selects plays from its own country. The plays ill be translated and in different ways promoted in all the Nordic countries. The Swedish jury has selected Jag målar min himmel orange by Sofia Fredén and Författarna by Alejandro Leiva Wenger. The two plays are currently being translated into English.

William Stockholms Musikteater
Set in London in 1592 the humorous and playful new musical ”William” examines Shakespeare’s deepest and complex thoughts in this tour de force musical. His 154 sonnets, written with Shakespeare’s unbridled lust for life, his humour, passion for love, budding insanity, impotence and jealousy, reveal much about Shakespeare and his time. ”William” takes a deep look at these sonnets and tries to find the answers to a 400-year old mystery – who was William Shakespeare?
