In the Solo Performance Commissioning Project the dancers commission a solo dance from Deborah Hay. She guides and coaches them in the performance of the solo during an 11-day period in a residency setting. At the conclusion of the residency each participant signs a contractual agreement to a daily solo practice of the new piece, for a minimum of three months before their first public performance.
The solo At Once was created for Stina Nyberg in August-September 2009. Together with Marcela Donato I premiered the solo at Tanztage Berlin in 2010 with further performance at Dansens Hus in Stockholm in January 2011.
