bibu 2020 will be held in May 2020 in Helsingborg, Sweden, exact dates to be announced.
bibu is a four day long festival, celebrated every second year. The first biennial was held in 2006. bibu 2018 was the seventh edition.
bibu is a forum where everyone interested in the performing arts for a younger audience can meet and be inspired; by each other, by the performances that are shown and by the seminars, workshops and meetings which you can attend during the four biennial days.
Independent theatres and dance companies, regional and national institutions, as well as international guest artists will have the opportunity to present shows of high artistic quality to venue representatives, cultural administrators, teachers, politicians, media and the public.
The presented shows, selected by a jury, together with a range of seminars and forums for discussion, makes bibu a natural place for analysis and reflection on the quality, status and possibilities of the art forms.
bibu 2018 took place 16-19 May in Helsingborg on the western coast of Skåne and right next to its Danish neighbour Helsingør.
bibu 2018 in numbers: 24 theatres and dance companies, by whom four are international. 107 performances. 49 seminars/workshops/meeting points. 156 events.
