Movement poetry by Kenneth Kvarnström & four dancers.Tickets
Kenneth Kvarnström is one of the most experienced contemporary dance choreographers in the Nordic countries. In the early 2000s, he was head of theatre at Dansens Hus for a number of years and has been at the centre of Swedish dance for three decades. Now he is back, this time with a dance work in which he cross-fertilises dance with visual art and piano music.
The four dancers Ida Holmlund, Matthew Branham, Anton Borgström and Ole Kristian Tangen. are some of the best of their generation. They are four differences that meet, separate and combine in new constellations. Together with Kenneth, who also appears on stage, they create a collage in dissolution.
The show is set to music by the prominent German musician and composer Nils Frahm, known for his way of combining piano music with electronics.
Kenneth Kvarnström has a unique position in Swedish dance life, both as a beloved choreographer and as a leader of major dance institutions such as Dansens Hus and Kulturhuset Stadsteatern in Stockholm. He has often worked with his own K. Kvarnström & Co, but has also created commissioned works for the Sydney Dance Company and GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, among others. .
