is about adapting the white room to us. It's about taking over the room, filling it. It's about being there for each other, backing each other, strengthening each other. It's about our siblings. ሙሉ kokonainen تمامی is not an explanation, it is not a display of our traumas, it is an experience that is for us.

Vita Strumpor

Vita Srumpor is an interactive show for children aged 4-7.

Vita Strumpor is an interactive show for children aged 4-7 years. The dance game Vita Strumpor has been the world around and met a lot of children. But unfortunately Vita Strumpor has to fall asleep after every game, and then it forgets al the children it has met. To awaken its memory the audience and the dancer gets to play a game with it. This task takes the audience and the dancer on an adventure where the game makes the participants move, memorize a dance & song rhyme, and put together different letters different words. The performance is interactive. We work in the borderland of a performance, dance session and concert.

The piece will tour in Botkyrka, Järfalla, Sandviken and Ljusdal in 2022

Lucky numbers
by Stina Nyberg

In Lucky numbers the dancers get through everyday relationships with warmth and humor. There will be chopped up dance styles and rapid changes - all in a meeting between choreography, textile art and sporty humor to the club's pumping base. A bit like stepping into a world where all the senses become alive.

Untitled (Entitled) by Jacqueline Hoàng Nguyễn

Nguyễns konst uppmärksammar vår tids konstruktion av identitet och belyser dolda maktstrukturer. I till synes vardagliga händelser och historier visar hon på politisk relevans. Verket Untitled (Entitled) bygger på intervjuer med personer med invandrarbakgrund som känt sig tvingade att byta namn i ett försök att undgå diskriminering. I en textbaserad installation, bestående av rörliga strukturer med lentikulärtryck, visas de medverkandes namn enligt modersmålet, men också deras tagna västerländska namn. Vid ett antal tillfällen under utställningens gång kommer dansare att aktivera installationen i form av en performance, koreograferad av Nguyễn, och som har sitt uruppförande på Bonniers Konsthall. Dansarna rör sig till musik komponerad av enkla fraser som används vid språkinlärning, till exempel ”jag heter”.

Skiftet av Johanna Fröjd

With its origin to the house dance tradition, the dancers create a playful space to explore the importance of a rite in a collective celebration and healing.
      If a rite is extinguished in one place, it will occur in another
     In the performance Shiftet, the dancers examine what it means to get together, create symbols and celebrate life. By paying attention to details and exploring the power of seductive and sensual grooves, the Shift is about the sanctity of the body and mind as well as being able to transform the dramatic lives of human and the world. The piece was planned to have premier in Decemeber 2020 but is postponed to October 2021. Fanni Ijäs will substitute for Ama at the premier.
