East 15's Scandinavian Showcase in Denmark

Help East15 and the Mind The Gap ensemble put on their showcase in Scandinavia!


The Purpose

We're raising money to create an awesome devised performance showcase in Copenhagen. The Mind the Gap ensemble consists of Scandinavian East15 MA, MFA and BA graduates where we are inviting the Scandinavian industry to attend. The goal of the showcase is to build a bridge between the British and the Scandinavian industry in Performing Arts. The focus is especially to give Scandinavian East15 alumni the possibility of working across borders both in the UK and in Scandinavia. We want to show them how awesome East15'ers are and why they should hire us!


Mind the Gap ensemble

Mind the Gap was created in 2018 by East15 graduates with the desire to introduce Scandinavian East15 graduates to the Scandinavian acting industry.

From Then till now to the future

Mind the Gap has existed since May 2018, and had its first showing in September 2018 at Teater Grob in Copenhagen. The company was built with a common vision of creating great opportunities to showcase actors and the skills they learnt abroad, to the Scandinavian industry. With the previous showcase, Mind the Gap managed to show how East 15 actors stand out in front of a sold out audience. 

Now, Mind the Gap are working on their second showcase in the middle of a pandemic. But due to the history and the community that Mind the Gap stands for, we have managed to power through and get it going. Not only will the show be beneficial for us as newly graduated actors, but we also prove that this project is an ongoing opportunity for future Scandinavian East 15 alumni to annually showcase themselves to the Scandinavian industry.
