Borealis is a festival for experimental music and adventurous listening held annually in Bergen, Norway every March since 2004. Borealis is committed to gender-balanced programming, and in 2017, the festival was awarded the first Gender Equality Prize from the Norwegian Society of Composers. Borealis 2018 features equal gender representation in both the composers and performing artists throughout the 28 scheduled events over the 5 days of the festival. We asked 5 questions to Artistic Director Peter Meanwell about Borealis 2018 and inclusive programming ahead of this year’s festival, which is scheduled for March 7-11.
