Dans. Katapult is a way for the dancers to develop and challenge their creativity, as well as for the audience to meet the dancers in a more intimate context.
katapult Latin catapu´lta, from the Greek katape´ltēs, ’to throw’, ’to hurl’

Watch a film clip from Katapult
For two evenings, dancers from GöteborgsOperans Danskompani show off some different sides of creative talents. Come and meet them and the way they interpret the theme of this dance season – Mind & Spirit – in photo exhibitions, films, installations and, of course, dance. To challenge and develop their creativity, dancers at times work with art-forms other than dance. This time, the audience gets the chance to see Katapult, which is also to be part of the Gothenburg Dance & Theatre Festival.
