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.
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

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
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.
For children from 7-12 years old and
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.
