Nordicana: Nordic Noir & Beyond Live 2015
06 June, 2015 - 07 June, 2015
From 6th-7th June 2015, fans with a criminal curiosity for provocative Nordic crime dramas can flock to the Troxy theatre in London for Nordicana – Nordic Noir & Beyond Live. The event plays host to the brightest stars from the Scandinavian television shows and crime fiction that we in the UK have come to love, including The Bridge’s icy leading lady Sofia Helin and none other than Sofie Gråbøl, who played the iconic Sarah Lund in three seasons of The Killing.
In addition to these shining lights of the genre will be stars of the hit Danish show The Legacy and the brand new BBC FOUR series 1864 – which will come to its dramatic conclusion with final episode screenings at the event with cast-members in attendance.
Nordicana will premiere 3 brand new series with episode one exclusive screenings of ITV Encore’s Jordskott, More4’s new 6 part WWII drama The Saboteurs and the new French Crime series from Channel 4 – Witnesses.
The festival is designed to allow audiences the chance to explore the intoxicating realm of Nordic Noir and to get up close and personal, with an interactive collection of cultural activities to choose from. A tantalising range of food, drink, design and culture combines the excitement of a cultural expo with the flair of a film and literary festival.
The evolution of the show continues in 2015 with a brand new team taking the concept into a fresh, revised format. All ticket holders will enjoy their own numbered seat for the day and can relax in-between talks and screenings. We will have a focused set of events on one main stage across the entire weekend and for more intimate and alternative events, there will be a secondary space whilst Book signings will be ongoing at the Nordicana bookstand.
Sunday events will mostly mirror those staged on Saturday, but with a twist for those wishing to attend over the whole weekend
All scheduled events and appearances are subject to change as actors own schedules are open to last minute filming changes; a full schedule of events will appear nearer the time.
