SAMARA is a Baltic-Nordic-European contemporary performing arts network established by 8 internationally active performing art organizations:

Kanuti Gildi SAAL (Eesti) -

Baltic Circle/Q-teatteri (Soome) -

Bora Bora (endine Entré Scenen) (Taani) -

Lokal Festival (Island) -

MDT (Rootsi) -

Black Box Teater (Norra) -

Kampnagel (Saksamaa) -

Nordwind Festival (Saksamaa) -


SAMARA was initiated by organisations that had been collaborating for longer on one to one basis or on smaller scale projects in various combinations. SAMARA partners joined forces based on commonly agreed existing needs to create new opportunities for emerging Nordic and Baltic artists to co-produce and tour their work. Aiming to facilitate a place for dialogue, networking and long lasting collaborations.


Samara is a type of fruit with a flattened wing around the seed. The shape of a samara enables the wind to carry the seed further away than regular seeds from the parent tree. We hope that this network will assist artists and arts practitioners in developing an extra set of wings.


Supported by Nordic-Baltic Mobility Programme for Culture via Long-term Network Module financed by the Nordic Council of Ministers and the Ministers of culture in the Baltic countries.
