Each of us is an autonomous individual seeking our own objectives, yet we are also members of groups - groups that constrain us, guide us, and sustain us. Just as each of us influences the group and the people in it, so, too, do groups change each one of us.

DaTha III is a remake of the original version from 2009.

"Wide Long Road is a dance piece tracing a choreographic pathway born in the meeting between Brazilian choreographer Thiago Granato and the second-year contemporary students at The Royal Swedish Ballet School. Over 5 weeks of consistent work, layers of the body were exposed through practicing distinct qualities of attention. This collective journey allowed new bodies to unfold; feelings direct thought while curiosity slips into movement."

About searching for deep waters, about following your instincts and really listening- inwardly and outwardly.

"Every human being is a half-open door that leads to a room for everyone

The endless ground below us

The water shines between the trees

The lake is a window to the earth"


"Every man a half-open door leading to a room for everyone.
The endless ground beneath us.
The water shines between the trees.
The lake is a window to the earth".
