Aeroe’s First Ever International Mask-Festival
Aeroe is one of the few place left in Denmark that has a living mask tradition. The people of Aeroe celebrate the “Twelfth Night or Shrovetide”, walking from house to house wearing masks. That’s why Aeroe is the perfect and natural place for the first ever international mask festival in Denmark. There will be a mixed variety of mask traditions-world wide including performances, workshops, exhibitions and a scientific gathering. People are coming from the USA, Italy and many other european countries.
The opening of the festival will take place in the city of Soeby. Here you will initially see 3 artists from the US called “Gateway Productions” with their show “Illusions”. There will be parades through the streets of Aeroeskoebing with many other entertainers.
