About Us


The artistic trademark of hvid støj are engaging and visual theatre experiences with a twinkle in the eye.

hvid støj’s repertoire covers all ages within the children and youth theatre – from two-year-olds to the eighteen-year-old. Always addressing topics considering the specific ages with equally shared curiosity, respect, astonishment and crunch – whether it is a performance produced for the toddlers, the self-hurting teenager or the inquisitive minds of the seven-year-olds. We are fascinated when performing arts succeeds in affecting a feeling or a thought in us, so that we can sense and grow wiser on life … at all ages!

Since 2008 hvid støj has received continuous project funding from the Danish Arts Foundation, the Municipality of Aarhus and several private foundations to realize our artistic ideas and concepts for the children and youth theatre. Lately hvid støj managed to get through the eye of the needle receiving a two-year grant from the Danish Arts Foundation in 2014/15 and 2015/16. This grant has recently been prolonged for a three-year period in 2016/17, 2017/18 and 2018/19.

Carsten Jensen (editor at the Danish national web-magazine for Danish theatre for children and young people www.teateravisen.dk) wrote in the article “Last round with SKU” that hvid støj:

“indeed can take the liberty to consider the disposition of SKU as a qualitative seal/stamp of approval.”

On the basis of just two performances the Municipality of Aarhus awarded hvid støj with a three-year “basis-grant” for operation, consolidation, touring and new projects in 2012, 2013 and 2014:

“The Arts Council (red.: Aarhus) has followed hvid støj’s artistic work through the last years, noticing an ongoing development in the groups work with theatre for children and young people. hvid støj are able to take up difficult and challenging subjects, transform them into an easily understandable expression and make the subjects attentive and relevant for the target audience.
