Dear all, subscribers, colleagues and friends,

This Newsletter number 63 sent to you from Stockholm, Sweden reaches you in turbulent times. Many of us had to cancel our travels, our tours, our planned repertoires, congresses, meetings and premieres. Culture is crucial and more important than ever. Due to the strong actions decided by politicians, organisations and incorporations, there is hope. We send our best wishes to you all. Take care, and use all the digital tools you have at hand, to keep up the good conversation, creative thinking, strong networks and international exchange so crucial to our performing arts, all over the world.

Convoi Exceptionnel and Jon R. Skulberg are currently touring the performance FOR EVER FOUR SEASONS that both pleases and disturbs the audience. The performance investigates the contemporary role of humanity as natural power – especially how we, directly and indirectly, inflict the natural world through control of power, but also when we cannot keep control, and it ends in disaster.

FOR EVER FOUR SEASON's world premiered 27 Aug 2019 at Bora Bora – Dance and Visual Theatre, Aarhus, Denmark. It was performed in Copenhagen, Denmark the 12-13 March 2020 as part of Dansehallerne's Spring Program. Next stop will be Sandnes Kulturhus, Norway 7 May 2020 as part of RAS – Regional Arena for Samtidsdans.

 - Performing in KUCKEL by Alexander Ekman

photo: Fabian Kriese

Charlotta Öfverholm is performing in Alexander Ekman's newest production KUCKEL. In KUCKEL there is a double bottom where each individual situation can be a scheme ("kuckel"). But it is also something larger where the audience has the opportunity to be in a world where there are no boundaries for what might happen. What do we actually do against our will? What happens without us seeing or understanding? Performances at Orionteatern, Stockholm (SE) until 12 April 2020.

"High tempo and a choreographic sharpness" "The subject for Kuckel may be serious, however the interpretation is both elegant and entertaining" - Aftonbladet (SE)

"Kuckel portraits a lovely ensemble work" "Dreamlike, drastic and absurd" - Dagens Nyheter (SE)
