Sweden's new dance artists are stepping into the spotlight.


26 Apr

Three cities. Three world premieres. Three of Sweden's leading dance companies. Welcome to a unique national collaboration between three of Sweden's leading dance companies: GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, Kungliga Baletten and Skånes Dansteater.

During the spring, a choreographer chosen by each company visited one of its sister companies and created a new work for its dancers. The result: three fantastic dance works performed by the country's top dancers!

Katrín Hall, artistic director of GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, Nicolas Le Riche, artistic director of Kungliga Baletten and Åsa Söderberg, artistic director of Skånes Dansteater, make the following joint statement on 3D:

"Our idea of the project is to create new opportunities for development through exchange. We are keen to nurture and stimulate our dancers' creativity and with this project we create a platform for new talents, a chance for dancers to develop as choreographers. This is the first time these three of Sweden's leading dance companies have come together in this way and it will be very exciting to see the results of this intense process."
