Founded in Copenhagen by Anna Berit Asp Christensen in 2008, Scenatet is recognized as one of the most innovative and experimental ensembles for music and art in Europe. Moving within a cross-genre field of music, drama, happenings, and more, the ensemble strives to present conceptual art works of the highest quality, by working in close collaboration with composers, directors, artists and filmmakers, as well as festivals and galleries to present music as part of a larger whole, whether theatrical or artistically unique productions or more traditional concerts.


Highly visible internationally, Scenatet has toured much of the world, having performed at traditional concert venues as well as in unexpected places — parks, libraries, backyards, and private homes — in Copenhagen, Graz, Istanbul, Bergen, Berlin, Hong Kong, and Shanghai, among others. A staple of Denmark’s contemporary music scene, with numerous performances at the SPOR and Klang Festivals, Scenatet has also been invited to perform at several of the world’s most renowned contemporary music festivals: among them Norway’s Ultima, Bergen, and Borealis Festivals, Belgium’s Transit, Holland’s November Musik, China’s Shanghai New Music Week, Germany’s MaerzMusik and Heroines of Sound, Poland’s Warsaw Autumn, Iceland’s Nordic Music Days, France’s Nuit Blanche, and Britain’s Huddersfield Contemporary Music Festival, and has represented Denmark in the prestigious European cultural project New Music: New Audiences (New:Aud).


The ensemble works with the modern generation of composers from Denmark and the world, presenting premieres and performances of composers such as

Peter Ablinger, George  Aperghis, Jeppe Just Christensen, Christian Winther Christensen, Juliana Hodkinson, Jacob Kirkegaard, Simon Løffler, Jessie Marino, Sarah Nemtsov, Marianthi Papalexandri-Alexandri, Niels Rønsholdt, Francois Sarhan, Salvatore

Sciarrino, Simon Steen-Andersen, Bent Sørensen, Manos Tsangaris and Jennifer Walshe and has recorded three CD’s on the Dacapo label: most recently Niels Rønsholdt’s “Me Quitte” in 2016.


SCENATET is supported by the Danish Arts Council, the Danish Arts Foundation,

Conductors Association, KODA, Sonning-Fonden and Wilhelm Hansen Fonden.EndFragment
