- Premiering TRANSPLANTATION at Norrlandsoperan (SE) in November
photo: Mats Bäcker

19 Nov 2021 is the premiere of Charlotte Engelkes latest work TRANSPLANTATION, at Norrlandsoperan in Umeå (SE). Together with the dancer and choreographer Sofia Södergård, as drag king, Engelkes creates a performance about identity, existence, life and death.

In TRANSPLANTATION we get to experience choreography, standup, opera, music, comedy and drama – with inspiration from bone marrow transplantation, love stories and Wagner. The personal story is at the centre. One woman carries a Y chromosome after a bone marrow transplant. The other woman carries a drag king identity. And both ask themselves: Where do I end and where does the other begin? Can I be everything?

TRANSPLANTATION is a musical, dramatic, choreographic and humorous work with specially written music by German composer and sound designer Willi Bopp, scenography and lighting design by Karl Svensson, costume design by Anna Ardelius and in collaboration with the Norrlandsoperan Symphony Orchestra, music from "Tristan and Isolde" by Richard Wagner - a show about love for the other, for oneself and for life. Read more here.

TRANSPLANTATION will be shown at Dansens Hus in Stockholm (SE) in 2022.

Andersson Dance and Riksteatern present three more performances of PROMISE LAND by Örjan Andersson and Helene Billgren at Kristianstad Konsthall 15,16,17 July 2021, in the midst of Helene Billgren's exhibition ”Internmeddelandenh". For more information and booking, go here.

Radio station P4 Kristianstad interviewed Örjan Andersson about presenting the work in a new context and returning to meet audiences again after a long hiatus. Listen to the interview in Swedish here.

PROMISE LAND - which opened at Dansens Hus in Stockholm (SE) last fall - is the result of an encounter between visual artist Helene Billgren and choreographer Örjan Andersson - and is created with and performed by Brittanie Brown and Jenny Nilson. Based on Helene Billgren’s work, Örjan Andersson creates a fragmentary, dreamy landscape inhabited by two women where bodily narratives with free inventions and absurdities take place. In Andersson's new work we meet his choreography in a closer, smaller format, for two dancers. All in true surrealistic spirit. Co-production Andersson Dance and Riksteatern, supported by Kulturrådet, Stockholms Stad and Region Stockholm (SE). More info about PROMISE LAND here.

photo: Jonath Mathew

Viktor Fröjd's FESTEN opens 2 Sept 2021 at Dansstationen, Malmö (SE) and is presented at Dansens Hus in Stockholm (SE) 7-18 Sept and 18-20 Nov 2021.

Maybe festen (the party) is the last resort where we can embody our longing beyond language and thought. A longing away from structure, symmetry and measurability demanded by modern life. FESTEN is the tribute to the human and the spiritual. To dance and to using the body to experience all the inherent possibilities in the human being, together as well as alone. Everyone who participates in FESTEN is also part of creating it. DJ Cheza takes us on a journey through the world of house music and we are guided by our host Yared. A co-production with Kulturföreningen Iver, Dansens Hus, Norrlandsoperan and Dansstationen. Supported by Kulturrådet, Malmö Stad, Region Skåne and Konstnärsnämnden (SE).
