If possible

Premiere March 2016

Exciting work has been taken place in the creation of If possible. Together with children age 7-11 we explored how to create a dance performance in the space of a classroom. If possible turned out to be an adventure and a magic place where anything is possible. It is a dance performance where we question the idea of rules and regulations, participation and adaption. In the performance the audience is encouraged to dare to be oneself.

For Children 7-12 years old

Listen to the wind
A journey through the biting wind.
Obstacles appear – we have to get past.
It takes courage and cleverness.
To dare.
A classic theme in a new work by choreographer Ingrid Olterman.
The percussionist fills the performance with rhythms, music and song. The dancer Micke Strid is pushing his limits in this energetic and clever dance tale. The performance is followed by a workshop, where the children sing and dance together with the artists.

Feed me!

Premiere 2014 at ZebraDans, StockholmA performance where we question the difference between man and machine through dance and music. We are in a space surrounded by musical apparatus that need to be looked after and taken care of in order to function. The three caretakers have to show consideration, have technical knowledge, be patient and determined at the same time. As the caretakers work they notice that the apparatus do not act the way they want them to. They are facing difficulties together in which their relationship is being tested but when collaborating laughter and sweet music appears.

For Children from 5-9 years old and family

Shelter trees

Premiere 2013

The sighing is in the trees in the leaves on the ground in the pine needles in our wollen hats in our hair in the pockets of our jackets. Eva Lindström

We are building a cabin, a cabin of branches. Now we are trailing the branches. It is quite hard. It is ready! I´m sitting inside and you are out there/outside. Can you see me? Now we both sit inside the cabin, cosy! Together we experince the joy of sharing something nice with a friend, of being there and laughing /together/ but also having to endure the sometimes pricky feeling.

For Children 3-6 years old and family

Cycling back to front

Cycling back to front has played over 250 performances since premiere 2012.

Two dancers and one musician work with the interior of a room. Furniture become instruments, bodies start to move. The performance integrates the ability to look for possibilities, re-use, re-make and allows us to look at the things we have got and reflect on questions about life itself from the perspective of a child.

Carrier

Carrier is a performance where contemporary music and dance exist side by side in a visually strong, shared space. This circular piece surrounds and captures the audience with its different elements.

The piece has the shape of a circle in which you as audience are experiencing circularity through composition in movement, music and in space. Inside the circle, as the music surrounds you, you witness a changing landscape, a grand piano and a carrier.
