The heart beats, time stops and the senses are confused. In THE HEART by choreographer Mari Carrasco, we are placed in a box with the dancers. We find ourselves in a room, in a club, where a mood, an atmosphere and a shared experience are created and we become part of something bigger.



75 minutes

THE HEART is based on a movement language with groove and rhythm. It is a unique performance with a burning nerve. Together with Mikael Karlsson's magnificent string music, and Mira Svanberg's pulsating dramatic light, and Jenny Nordberg's magical set and costume, a dizzying, magnetic and visual experience is created in a small space. In THE HEART, we get so close to the dance that it almost feels like it is happening inside us.

"THE HEART" should have premiered in the spring of 2020 at Kulturhuset Stadsteatern Vällingby, but due to the pandemic the premiere was postponed. Through a collaboration between Dansens Hus and Stadsteatern Vällingby, it will now finally meet the audience.

The show "THE HEART" is performed for both schools and the public. School performances are booked through the City of Stockholm's Kulan.
