The event also questions the boundaries and definitions of the generally accepted roles of the "presenter” and the “presented”. Participant artists are encouraged to play an active role in managing and facilitating it, and to use their creativity not only in their own work but also in the creation of the event itself. For instances, My Linblad and Gry Raaby , two Copenhagen-based choreographers/ dancers are helping to coordinate and organize a team of other Copenhagen-based artists. The Dance Department of the Statens Scenekunstskole has agreed to be part of this and to help to co-produce part of the event, as this will be of great benefit for its students. In every edition of the Not Festival a conceptual framework is offered to the participants and it is embedded in the title chosen for each occasion. The title chosen for the Copenhagen edition, Not Festival: An atypical point of view, if you allow me, is open to the artists’ own interpretations.
