HIMHERANDIT Productions was founded in 2003 by Brtish born interdisciplinary artist Andreas Constantinou.
HIMHERANDIT Productions produce high-quality, innovative and bold performances that range from Contemporary Dance productions, Physical Theatre to Live-Art Performances. It is a project based company that strive to cultivate new crowds of audiences outside of the usual theatre environment. Each of our productions vary in size with collaborators and performers entering and exiting the company on a project basis. This enables our company to continuously grow through cultural and artistic exchange.
HIMHERANDIT Productions performances are Co-Produced with Bora Bora - dans og visuelt teater in Aarhus, Denmark, where they are In House Artists since 2012.
HIMHERANDIT relocated to Aarhus, Denmark in 2009. Since relocating HIMHERANDIT have built up a number of successful projects that have received financial support from Statens Kunstråd (The Danish Arts Council), Aarhus Kommune (Aarhus Arts Council), Silkeborg Kommune with additional support from a vast amount of organizations.
HIMHERANDIT Productions has been growing into a reputable company, catching the eye of the press, audiences and programmers both nationally and internationally. Specifically with a growing reputation of being "The Cutting Edge Queer Performance Company in Aarhus", they have attracted the attention from multiple European theatres and festivals interested in their performances and in 2015 were selected for Aerowaves16 as one of the 20 most exciting dance makers in Europe.
In 2014, Andreas Constantinou (Artistic Director/Choreographer of HHAI) was awarded by The Danish Arts Foundation for the performance ReDoing GENDER, and in 2015 for a second year in a row, he received the same award this time for the performance The WOMANhouse. In receiving these awards the committee named HIMHERANDIT "an exciting new name in the Danish Performance Scene".
HIMHERANDIT Productions are currently touring their performances nationally and internationally to a growing interest from programmers, theatres and audiences.
OUR VISION AND MISSION
We are rigorous in our vision and motivation with a high ambition to make performance projects that push, provoke and engage audiences into a discourse around important subjects. To achieve this we believe in an artistic freedom not compromised by “popular culture”. We instead seek to address important themes and show audiences that performance can be a space for them to reflect, spark dialogue and question the world while still having fun.
We seek to develop meaningful performances for presentation locally, nationally and internationally. We aim to create a space for the marginalized, disregarded, diverse and queer, bringing important subject matters such as gender, sexuality and identity to the for front of dialogue. To do this we offer performances, workshops, educational programs, research labs and artist talks to promote social change through art. We endeavour to touch people’s lives through our projects and to be un-shy when addressing topical subject matters.
Organizationally we seek to expand our partnerships locally, nationally and internationally creating an intercultural exchange through residencies, projects and touring. We aim to bring our cutting edge and thought-provoking performances to the widest audiences possible and prove to ourselves and to others that you don’t have to be entertainment driven to be successful.
