We welcome our new member Bobbi Lo Produktion!

Bobbi Lo Produktion is a dance company that focuses on creating dance performances for a young audience. The artistic work is in direct contact with the world around us and it is characterized by openness, challenge, and risk-taking. The company’s artistic director Lava Markusson is interested in human behavior and how the art for a young audience can question and create dialogue around this. It is important for the company to create performances that speak to all senses and that therefore become open and inclusive. The body and the movement are always the core of the work and it is often integrated with interactive elements that lead to emotions, understanding, and insights that are difficult to reach whit a sitting audience.

Bobbi Lo Produktion is based in Malmö (SE) and has been creating and working in Denmark, Greenland, Norway, and The Farao Islands. The company has a strong Nordic connection and has been collaborating with a number of Nordic cultural institutions.

THE DAWN CHORUS reflects the hour between day and night. The meeting between those who awaken and tread the streets towards jobs that keep the wheels turning, and those stumbling home after a night on the town. THE DAWN CHORUS invites the audience to visit a moment at dawn when the fog both covers the fields and the dance floors. Choreographer Stina Nyberg and Norrdans blur the border between the real and the magical as the mystical hours of dawn harken for possibilities and change. The performance explores this time of day and night with undertones of environmentalism, speculative dystopia, and a belief that humanity is at its strongest when we work together. Info and tickets here.

THE DAWN CHORUS premieres on 10 Mar 2022 at Dansens Hus/Elverket, Stockholm (SE).

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. With the body as a battlefield, HOOKED sheds light on addiction as a phenomenon – whether it be in the form of gambling, apps, shopping, alcohol, sex, drugs, or painkillers. 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.

HOOKED is created by a team of international artists, including Danish/Swedish director and performance artist Annika B. Lewis, the Italian/German choreographer and performance artist Morgan Nardi, as well as the acclaimed, border-defying Swedish visual artist Peter Johansson.

HOOKED is coproduced with Bora Bora – dance and visual theatre and theatre FFT. Supported by the Danish Arts Foundation, The City of Aarhus, Knud Højgaards Fond, Overretssagfører L. Zeuthens Mindelegat and DMF.

Created with the support of Swedish Arts Council, Region Stockholm, Gula villan in Järna, Sala municipality, and Danscentrum Stockholm.
