KURAGE - PERFORMANCE LECTURE 2018
PRODUCER & DANCER

This performance are used as a lecture to talk and discuss how different discrimination and power structures are taken. How we are all a part of structures. Both as victims and rulers. How has it affected us as individuals and as a group? We will show a glimpse of reality. A reality that is brutal, unfair, true and above all comprehensible. No one will be left untouched.

THE HIPHOP SYMPHONY 2018 - CURRENT
IDEA & ARTISTIC LEADER
A unique set where hiphop dance meets an entire orchestra (55 musicians). Together with legendary conductor Leif Karlsson we celebrated hiphop music. The audience will follow a musical timeline and the dancers own personal experiences about meetings. The Hiphop Symphony is a meeting between two different artistic worlds and a performance about daring to meet. How did we meet before and now? What meetings separates and which unites? It`s an artistic cultural clash like no other.
