Davvi – Centre for Performing Arts

Venue specifications

During the residency you will have access to our fully equipped dance studio 24/7. The studio measures 16x10x4 meters. There is a PA, working and stage lights, mirror wall, dance floor, and a large window wall towards the harbour and city centre. The windows and mirrors may be blinded, turning the room into a blackbox. 

The studio is situated on the fourth floor with elevators available in addition to stairs. The whole building is wheelchair accessible with alternative step free access routes to all floors, including to the studio, our office, and the toilet/shower facilities. All main doors are button opened (to the side of the doors in wheelchair reachable height), however internal doors are not. There are some low doorsteps from the elevators to the studios. There is an accessible toilet near the studio equipped with a hoist, toilet chair and a changing bed for adults. In this toilet there is also a baby changing table.  


The residency house is not wheelchair accessible as it has steps to enter the house and is situated over two floors with no elevator. The house is located on a hill so if you have mobility problems it might be challenging to get to the house by foot. We have alternative housing in a hotel next to the Arctic Cultural Centre that can accommodate those that have mobility problems or uses a wheelchair.
