“The Choreography” is a performance filled with galloping horses, confetti, bold movements, imaginary hamsters, and dance. The piece explores the world through movement and examines how the way we move can affect our thoughts and what we see and feel.

“The Choreography” is a performance based entirely on the audience’s participation. All participants receive a pair of headphones, and a guiding voice gives them instructions on how to move, how to relate to one’s body and how to relate to one another. In other words, there are no dancers in the performance. Instead, the members of the audience create “The Choreography” together.

Concept, choreography, script and set design: Anna Haglund, Annica Styrke, Johan Sundén and Karin Wiklund

“The personal choice is fundamental, and each instruction is voluntary to perform. With an initial assurance that ‘everything will turn out right within The Choreography’, a firm foundation is created, and needed, in order to dare to discover both the inner conflicts and the fields of tension, and also the spread of joy and building of community that emerges during the act’s half-hour. Choreography where everything turns out right” – Västerbottens-Kuriren 2017: Choreography where everything turns out right
