After much interest from all over the world as a result of the showing at the ICE HOT Reykjavik Nordic Dance Platform in December 2018 Gunilla Heilborn and Theater im Bahnhof now put THE WONDERFUL AND THE ORDINARY on the road for some exclusive showings in Russia and Germany this summer and the show is presented at Tanz im August in Berlin (DE) 14-15 Aug 2019. More info here.

What makes us remember? And what about all the things we forget? THE WONDERFUL AND THE ORDINARY inquires into all sorts of memories, raising the question if it’s only the amazing stuff that is worth to remember. The audience is invited to stroll along in a haze of long time forgotten and not so important memories. This performance is a collaboration between Gunilla Heilborn and Theater im Bahnhof

The Danish theatre company DON GNU is back at the Edinburgh Fringe with a tragicomical look at the dream of old age and the fear of reaching it. Featuring the all-male company’s trademark rawly physical stunts and slapstick comedy mixed with bittersweet reflection on life and humanity, RAIDERS OF THE GREY GOLD seamlessly merges contemporary dance with daredevil acrobatic antics and moving musical poetry. In a battle against time, they throw themselves into a blazing acrobatic quest for "'the grey gold' and to find the bittersweet beauty in ageing. Watch a trailer here.

RAIDERS OF THE GREY GOLD is shown at the Edinburgh Fringe, ZOO Southside 4-10 Aug 2019. For allocation of tickets, please contact international producer Malene Cathrine Pedersen at

Andersson Dance and Scottish Ensemble are performing GOLDBERG VARIATIONS - TERNARY PATTERNS FOR INSOMNIA at the Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival (SHMF) in Kiel (DE) 18-19 Aug 2019.

In 2015, the declared aim of the Swedish choreographer Örjan Andersson and the director of the Scottish Ensemble, Jonathan Morton, was to extract something completely new from the frequently played work. In fact, they achieved a big hit with GOLDBERG VARIATIONS - TERNARY PATTERNS FOR INSOMNIA. Eleven musicians and five dancers stand together on the stage and perform Bach’s work as equal partners. More info here.

"Impulses are not only transferred from the music to the dancers, but the dancers and their movements also influence the music – it’s simply fantastic!" Schleswig-Holstein Musik Festival.

photo: Jessica Arneback

ilDance's project based professional junior company, ilYoung, presents two new works: ARRIVAL is a vivid examination of the meeting point between our expectations and what we actually meet upon arrival at a situation. The piece captures that significant moment of realization that we have come to meet a person or a place with many preconceptions and expectations and that might or might not be met during the actual encounter. TIME OF OUR LIFEis a shared intimate experience between the performers and the audience. The work is based on stories from each of the ten artists personal lives and explores the sense of nostalgia.

Swedish tour in August and September:
24-25 Aug 2019 Balettakademien Stockholm, 26-27 Aug 2019 Balettakademien Göteborg, 31 Aug 2019 Glashuset Gislaved, 7-8 Sep 2019 Länsmuseet Härnösand,10-11 Sep 2019 GIBCA Göteborg. Tickets here.
