NUDans 2017

Sweden’s most promising young dancers.

Twelve of Sweden’s most promising young dancers are taking the stage in a piece created exclusively for them by choreographers from GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. The work is inspired by the over-all theme of the dance season: Icons and Iconoclasm.

The choreographers for NUdans 2017 are: Ján Špoták, Pascal Marty, Dorotea Saykaly and Arika Yamada.

Try not to spill, in process

Try not to spill

Try not to spill by Dorotea Saykaly and Arika Yamada is a piece for three dancers looking at the nature of androgyny. We’re allowed a peek into what seems to be a living room. Or is it an observation room? Someone is watching the room’s habitants, overlooking how they deal with the cycle of iconoclasm within androgynous development.

Choreography: Dorotea Saykaly and Arika Yamada

Dancers: Kajsa Nilsson from The Royal Swedish Ballet School, Felicia Rivera Cetre and Linnea Hult from Balettakademin Stockholm.

The grass is greener on the other side

In The grass is greener on the other side, Ján Špoták reflects the ongoing human conflict between how we perceive ourselves versus how we are perceived by others. Is the being we see looking into the mirror consistent to who others see looking at us? Will it be possible to find the icon within ourselves?

Choreography: Ján Špoták
Dancers: Shannon Taylor and Teo Aracic from The Royal Swedish Ballet School,  Hampus Larsson and Josefine Gracia Slaaen from Balettakademin Stockholm and Inez Söderberg from Balettakademien Göteborg.

Ananke, in process

Ananke

The Greek goddess Ananke, the title of Pascal Marty’s work, was necessity personified. Incorruptible, inescapable and with more power than fate itself, she meted out reward and punishment alike. Here she is interpreted through emotion rather than visually, through bodies rather than human figures. The choreographer asks the question: Why did humans feel the need to create a goddess like Ananke? And why have we turned away from her?

Choreography: Pascal Marty
Dancers: Elin Ryman Myllyvainio and Daniel Vängelin from The Royal Swedish Ballet School, Elias Bäckebjörk from Balettakademin Stockholm and Mira Jägemar from Balettakademien Göteborg.
