Breaker Aly Bardan shows his solo "Dream to live" dedicated to all those who have fleed their countries and their safety. The four dancers in Axakavat, with a background in hip hop and house, explore the courage to dare to be and the power that comes from daring. ሙሉ kokonainen تمامی is a group of four dancers who work as dancers, choreographers and educators. Their piece is about sisterhood, strengthening each other and backing each other up. To adapt the white room. To take over the room, to fill it.
What's up Sweden is a Malmö Dance Week initiative and together with Dansstationen and Riksteatern we made an Open call to the Swedish street dance scene where they applied with an idea, a performance or a short showcase. Tonight we get to see the three showcases that were selected by a jury consisting of Damon Frost, Camilla Tellefsen and Lars Eidvall.
Produced by Kulturföreningen Iver in collaboration with the City of Malmö with support from Region Skåne, Riksteatern Skåne and the Swedish Arts Council.
