About the performance
Three dancers, a forest of streetlights and a sacred groove. Locus is a place where people breathe, live and change through movements and rhythms. It is a place that says yes to life at a time when many have lost faith in the future.Is Locus a utopia? Maybe not. Perhaps we just need to change our view of the reality we have created. Because things are always what they are, not what they seem to be.

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. Video and light installations together with the dancers on stage and the audience in the salon create a common place 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 own productions, Viktor creates works for larger and smaller stages. Having his foundation in street and club dance means that the improvisational 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 atmosphere in the room and what occurs 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.

Joanna Holewa Chrona is a dancer, choreographer and DJ active in Sweden and South Africa. With her background in street dance and from West/South African cultural dances, Joanna is active in the international battle scene and contemporary dance.

Abigail Vrede is a Dutch dancer. After starting with hip-hop and house, she has also trained in contemporary dance in Norway, Sweden and the Netherlands. She is now active in Norway.

Locus is a co-production between Riksteatern and Scenkonst Sörmland.

About Viktor Fröjd
Viktor Fröjd, dance artist, is based in Malmö, Scania. Through both commissions and own productions, Viktor creates and choreographs works for larger and smaller stages that tour around Sweden. With the conviction of dance's potential as a path to a deeper understanding of being human, the work in recent years has revolved around honesty, beginnings, time (not time) and the social force. Having its foundation in street and club dance means that the improvisational is constantly present, the understanding of the social, that everyone (and everything) that is in the room (performers and spectators) affects both the mood and what actually occurs.
