 - Swedish premiere and tour in March

Fusing music and movement, musicians and dancers, PRELUDE - SKYDIVING FROM A DREAM is the second collaboration between contemporary dance company Andersson Dance (SE) and pioneering string orchestra Scottish Ensemble (UK). Combining astute, inquisitive choreography with razor-sharp live musical performance, PRELUDE - SKYDIVING FROM A DREAM takes three rich pieces of music that push at the boundaries and restrictions of artistic expression and creates something entirely new – a dark, pulsating playground of ideas teeming with the paradoxes grooved into the edges and corners of the human subconscious.

Tour in Sweden in March 2019:
19 March 2019 Dansstationen, Malmö, 20 March 2019 Kungsbacka Teater, Kungsbacka, 22-23 March 2019 Dansens Hus, Stockholm, 25 March 2019 Vara Konserthus, 27 March 2019 Västerås Konserthus.

"You leave feeling as if you have gorged on the very stuff of life. Chaos, calm, disharmony, beauty, fear, connection, isolation – it's all here, conveyed through music, movement or both." The Scotsman

Dalija Acin Thelander will premiere her new durational performance/installation for babies 0-12 months LUMI OR IN THE HEART OF THE LIGHT, on 18 April 2019, in Klaipeda, Lithuania.

LUMI is conceived as a surreal, celestial-like, minimalistic performance/installation. It invites its audience to wander and explore its ethereal sphere, to drift among luminous objects responsive to touch and movement, to surrender to curious sensations. It explores the possibilities of an event-world rather than an object world - something more dynamic and relatively unpredictable. It aims at diverse sensory experiences and a heightened sensitivity towards the immediate physicality of the world by interlacing movement, dance, music, visual art and light design. The performance is co-produced by Šeiko šokio teatras, Klaipeda, Lithuania. For full credits and contact information - please read here.
