MY BODY MY NATION choreographed and performed by Israel Aloni looks at the correspondence between Self and Body. A one-person, multidisciplinary performative act, where the ownership over the physical body is examined within social, political, and ethical contexts. In the era of campaigns such as #MeToo and Black Lives Matter, Aloni would like to interrogate the archaeological and anthropological identities of our physical bodies. Via autobiographical elements and by responding to current political and social narratives, MY BODY MY NATION attempts to decolonize the physical body from the cultures and manners that have been imposed upon it.

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).

We seem to have a constant need to reflect oneself with other persons and we do not seem to get enough in our trying to imitate and compare ourselves with one another. How do I become who I am and how do I change through the people I meet? Read more here. Watch a trailer here.

Helena Franzén creates dance works where she generously shares her universe of delicate and passionate engagement in movement and music.

- A solo, a monologue, a dance and a lecture, all in one
photo: Märta Thisner

The title I SJÄLVA VERKET could in Swedish be read in two ways within this context. As a saying it would translate to "In fact", but it can also be understood as "In the actual piece". Swedes also use it as an expression saying "I praktiken" meaning literally "In the practice" saying "in the real world" or "In the actual". The title contains and projects the ambition with this performance. It comes from a strive of wanting to answer and open up conversations that Säfsten has had the last 8 years with audience members regarding contemporary dance, theories of dance practices, and why some work might look or be read in a certain way. In I SJÄLVA VERKET he attempts to talk and dance, sometimes simultaneously, to show, visualize, explain, question, and juggle the complicated issues at hand. Co-production between Säfsten Produktion and Riksteatern.

The piece will tour through Sweden with Riksteatern in the fall of 2022. The physical premiere takes place at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern in Stockholm (SE) 24 Sep 2021. Additional performances: 25 Sep, 1-3 Oct and 7-9 Oct 2021.
