37 HOURS AND 3 MINUTES is a slightly deficient mapping of Tolstoy's masterpiece Anna Karenina. Five performers on stage. Music. Costume. Light. Video. Talking. Dancing. Singing. Premiere 9 Feb 2022 at Elverket / Dansens Hus Stockholm (SE).

For those of you who have not read the book or for those of you who have read it a long time ago and of course also for those of you who don't have the stamina to read it, 37 HOURS AND 3 MINUTES now offers a survey of Tolstoy's masterpiece. In this collective investigation, we are guided by five dedicated people who are not afraid to investigate issues such as; are we approaching the end of history? How exactly did Tolstoy walk? Who is the most likable character in the book? 37 HOURS AND 3 MINUTES is the time it takes for an average reader to read the whole novel.

"-People who are shocked by what is happening in the last three or four months in Russia are more likely to quote Tolstoy than Dostoevsky." Tanya, a literature student in Moscow.

HOOKED opens 15-17 Mar 2022 at theater Bora Bora in Aarhus (DK). Join us for this wild roller coaster ride that oscillates between euphoria and abstinence, fear and pleasure, the highest kick, and the deepest tragedy.

What is this hunger that drives us? HOOKED is a wake-up call in a scenic hybrid of dance, ritual, visual art, and performance art.

GOLDBERG VARIATIONS - TERNARY PATTERNS FOR INSOMNIA is remounted in Stockholm in June 2022. The work for 11 musicians and 5 dancers opened in 2015 at Dansens Hus in Stockholm. Now the work returns to Stockholm (SE) with performances at Folkoperan 2-3 June 2022.

Play the opening of the Goldberg Variations to someone today, and usually, they all have heard it – whether in its original form, one of the many transcribed and transposed versions, or in a completely different setting in a totally different genre. It started life as a study for harpsichord; a simple aria, and a set of 30 variations where the aria functions as a hard drive for the whole work. 2015, Örjan Andersson (Andersson Dance) and Jonathan Morton (Scottish Ensemble) added their own. 11 musicians and 5 dancers perform Goldberg Variations as equal partners – both choreographed, the result is a singular experience of musician and dancer performing as one. For more info go here.

Production: Andersson Dance, Scottish Ensemble & Nordberg Movement. Co-production: Andersson Dance, Scottish Ensemble ,Regionteatern Blekinge Kronoberg & Riksteatern 2015. Made possible with support by The Swedish Arts Council, Stockholm Stad, Region Stockhol, Musikverket, and Creative Scotland. Additional school performance presented in collaboration with DANSISTAN.
