Right now I am in NYC to plan for a future in the city. If you are here, hook me up for a meeting or a dance-off and we will make the hot walls crumble.
On the 13th of October I perform Trio A by Yvonne Rainer at Eric Ericssonhallen in Stockholm. It is performed as part of the symposium Within Practice.
Shortly after, I begin the tour of Thunderstruck with Riksteatern, visiting 11 Swedish cities from the 20th October – 18th November. If you are in Malmö, Lund, Vadstena, Kil, Skärhamn, Kungsör, Askersund, Göteborg, Jokkmokk, Piteå or Haparanda – come see the electricity!
(Thunderstruck is one part of the Tesla project. You should also check out the rest. In June I presented the outcome of the collaboration with the choreographers Andros Zins-Browne and Diederik Peeters under the name Spectrophilia, at BUDA in Kortrijk, where also the concert Alternating Currents with musician Maria W Horn was presented. I also keep developing my investigations into the wireless in my choreographed talk about the two geniuses Nikola Tesla and Stina Nyberg, in The Woman who Lit the World)
On the 11th of August Andrahandskontraktet.had its premiere at Gubbängsfältet in Stockholm. With 5 dancers, a samba orchestra, the Isadora Duncan-dancing children, an accordion player and the visual artist Olof Marsja we created a live show about the shitty situation of finding a home in Stockholm city. After all, it turned out to a nice political outdorr dance and art event which will re-awaken through a film made by filmmaker Marta Dauliute in fall 2018.
