Welcome to WAVES Festival in Vordingborg and surroundings

WAVES Festival has been organized by The Regional Theatre of Vordingborg Municipality, every second year since 1991.  The festival presents the latest in a wide range of world-class performing arts genres. International artists show current trends in theatre, dance, performance, new circus and interdisciplinary forms of expression. The performances are predominantly visual and sensory based, so they can be understood regardless of language and nationality. There is something for every taste and for audiences of all ages.  

WAVES Festival consists partly of an indoor program which is shown at the city’s main venues, Vordingborg Theater and Pavillon K, partly of an outdoor program that is presented in various locations in the city, with free access for all, and partly of a music program that is presented at the city’s music venue Stars.  

WAVES Festival also consists of the school program SKVULP! and WAVES Xtra, which is the festival’s program dedicated to the local and national performing arts community. 

This year we initiated, as something new a climate initiative which, among other things, includes planting of 300 trees in Denmark and a ceremony to mark the initiative during the festival. Read more HERE.

Malco Oliveros was the production manager and curator of the 2023 edition of the WAVES Festival
