A production residency that delves into the movement.


In May, the Madeleine Lindh and Anja Arnquist to work on their upcoming production V - an all-arts work that delves into the movement. With melancholic features, dystopian humour and an approaching positivism, the aim is to V put on the costume of being a family show and an experience for everyone between 11 and 99 years old.

is a sister show to the duo's previous children's show. WEB. But where WEB invited the audience to physically join Anja Arnquist and Madeleine Lindh in dancing their world forward, the V with its peekaboo perspective, the audience instead has the opportunity to be sucked into a series of suggestive and illusionary situations from a distance.

OR/OR describe themselves V as: a 'dance epic', set in the centre of a hollow nest. Like a floating printer on a futuristic platform, or a warped reflection of life.

The beautifully basic and functionally human nature of climbing, pulling and leaning emerges in the bodies' encounter with the scenography. In the midst of this world of grids, dance, with its sublime, sometimes weightless, hyper-constructed choreography, becomes a fiery comet on which to project one's gaze.

Together with the set designer and constructor Johannes Fäst, the lighting designer Tobias Hallgren, the costume designer Jenny Nordberg, the composer William Rickman, programmers and technicians Calle Mårtensson and the graphic designers Agnes Florin and Sepidar Hosseini OR/ELLER weaves another performing arts hybrid in the shape of a V.
