In the flier for NORD5 the following, among other things, is written about Performing Arts Network (of Norway):

"Performing Arts Network (of Norway) finds it important that Norwegian performing arts are to be part of an international market. We stimulate to this through an expansive range of international contacts, plus regular musterings in which Norwegian performing arts are programmed by Performing Arts Network (of Norway) for corresponding institutions abroad (Brussels/Kaaitheater 2002, Belgrade/Cenpi 2003, New York/PS122 2005).

However it is as important to us to make Norwegian performing arts part of the international market through importing contemporary, up-to-date performing arts to Norway. One will not become an organic part of a market solely through selling one's own to others. One also has to receive and be open to impulses from the outside. That way the home arenas become international too."
