Mission and Vision
Himherandit Productions artistic vision is rigorous, with a high ambition to make performance projects that push, provoke and engage audiences into a discourse around important subjects. To achieve this Himherandit Productions believe in an artistic freedom not compromised by popular culture but instead seek to address important themes and show audiences that performance can be a space for reflection, spark dialogue and question the world we live in.
Himherandit Productions develop meaningful performances for presentation locally, nationally and internationally, and 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 Himherandit Productions practice extends into an ongoing developing artistic, social and academic research that results into performances, exhibitions and community engagement projects, promoting social change through art. Himherandit Productions endeavor to touch people's lives through performance practice and to be un-shy when addressing topical subjects.
