Celebrating “European Identity” and theatre across New York, the second anual European Month of Culture is running in conjunction with the Origin Theatre. A sister festival of European Month of Culture (which has taken place every May in Washington DC since 2013), European Month of Culture NYC runs May 2 to the 30th, and emphasizes encounters and collaborations between visiting artists and the sizable diaspora audience and artist communities living and working in New York.
Among the highlights are several multi-week festivals-within-the-Festival, including “In Scena!” the first Italian theatre festival of its kind, taking place in all five boroughs (April 29 to May 13); the acclaimed “Brits Off-Broadway” season at 59E59 Theaters, which annually curates work by writers and producers from the UK in the month of May; “Nordic Impressions” – a contemporary art exhibition showing artists from Åland, Denmark, Finland, Greenland, Iceland, Norway, and Sweden at Scandinavia House; and the “European Sounds Series” showcasing European jazz in New York during the Blue Note Jazz Festival (kicking off on May 27). In addition the Austrian Cultural Forum plans Month of May cultural programming, as does the French Embassy to the United States in partnership with Alliance Française.
