Production Details / Press Releases
In their latest work, Stina Nyberg, Rosalind Goldberg and Sandra Lolax explore the everyday unpleasantnesses of the body. Beginning with the political history of the body, “Immunsystemet” explores the flipside of well-being, emphasising the soft, vulnerable parts of the organism. The three choreographers’ collaborations reveal their ongoing interest in the biological and sociological constructions of the body. Their personal enquiry into bodily failures and defects focuses on corporeal activity and the question of what this activity represents.
Rosalind Goldberg, Sandra Lolax and Stina Nyberg have been working together since 2008. Their collaboration is rooted in a common interest in the biological and social construction of the body. Their performances are choreographic investigations into how our environment, our biology and our lived experiences shape the body and its movements. For each project, they reconceive the form of their collaboration and their working methods. Their works have been shown at the Tanztage in Berlin, Lofft Leipzig, Schauspielhaus Bochum, the Diversion Dance Festival in Kostroma (Russia) as well as Moderna Dansteatern and Weld in Stockholm.
