When Jeppe Nedergaard started art school in Sønderborg seven years ago, he had never painted before. He had previously drawn and done graffiti, but painting was new to him. Today, he has found his style in contrasts and semi-abstract expression, and he makes a living from his art, which is primarily sold at Galleri Maxus101 in Augustenborg.
Are you into the royal ballet or revue comedy? A wide variety performances tread the boards in Sønderborg.
During the theatre season, there’s plenty to choose from – whether you want to sit in the audience or participate actively. Because Sønderborg Theatre puts on both the big commercial bestsellers and smaller experimental performances – and is also where Denmark’s third largest summer revue, Sønderborg Summer Revue, takes place. At the Lille Teater in Gråsten, you can experience committed and ambitious amateur performances, and you too can take part. As for dance, you’ve got the South Jutland Dance Academy, which offers professional ballet lessons.
