PASSAGE is an international street theatre festival that unites the Danish city of Helsingør with the Swedish city of Helsingborg across the Sound in a unique collaboration between Helsingør Theatre and Dunkers Culture House. For the past decade the festival has presented high-quality international street theatre artists, with a strong focus on rooting these in the local communities. PASSAGE creates artistic experiences in public spaces – in both old city centres and peripheral housing zones.
