Biljetter & info
Performance length: about 60min
Valerie Solana’s honesty and vulgarity have been a source of inspiration for Ellinor Ljungkvist and her dancers as they worked on Angry Stories.
The performance is based on real events that the dancers themselves have been through. In a genuine and ominous way, they share their personal stories. Reveals taboo truths and embodies these scenes through various techniques and performative ideas.
Disapproval of emotional >> scenes << leads to fear of strong feelings, fear of anger and hatred, fear of confronting reality, as a confrontation with reality at first always leads to anger and hatred, combined with a lack of self-confidence when it is about managing and changing the world and when it comes to influencing their destiny in the slightest way.

Ellinor Ljungkvist is educated at the Salzburg Experimental Academy of Dance, Inter- University Center for Dance Berlin and Master of Choreography at the School of Dance and Circus in Stockholm. She has participated in a number of collaborative projects during her time in Vienna and Berlin together with contemporary dancers and performance artists in the free stage. But in recent years Ellinor has put more focus on establishing her own choreographic work, which has been supported by Studienstiftung des deutschen Volkes and Dans in Örebro county, among others.
Ellinor’s work is characterized for its combination of contemporary dance and performance art often based on real events described from a female perspective. Because of her educational background and especially her time in Berlin, Ellinor’s work is of conceptual approach when she creates scenic works based on personal and true stories.
