Locus is a place where people breathe, live and change through movement and rhythm. It is a place that says yes to life at a time when many have lost faith in the future.
Is Locus a utopia? Perhaps not. Maybe we just need to change our view of the reality we have created. Because things are always what they are, not what they seem.
On stage we see the three dancers Anton Borgström, Joanna Holewa Chrona and Abigail Vrede who, like Viktor Fröjd, have a background in street dance. Together with the dancers on stage and the audience in the auditorium, video and light installations create a shared space in transformation. The newly written music moves between acoustic and electronic, between everyday and distorted where rhythm and resonance arise and change.
Viktor Fröjd is a dance artist based in Malmö. Through both commissions and his own productions, Viktor creates works for larger and smaller stages. Being rooted in street and club dance means that improvisation is constantly present in his work. And also that he has an understanding of the social, that everyone who is in the room affects the mood of the room and what arises there.
Anton Borgström has won several prestigious battles/competitions around the world. He works with a number of choreographers such as Kenneth Kvarnström, Fredrik "Benke" Rydman, Cristina Caprioli and Örjan Andersson.

Viktor Fröjd, dancer and choreographer, holds a workshop at Elverket at 10-12. The class is open to everyone, professionals and beginners, with or without house experience. In this workshop, Viktor Fröjd focuses on finding the experience in the dance. With house music, swing, rhythm and polyrhythm, we go through different states, drills and footwork. Viktor teaches some basic steps that are used in various exercises and shorter choreographies.
