Johanssons pelargoner och dans (SE)

The Choreography
| Saturday 2 July
At 10:30 – 12:30
Tanssin talo - Dance House Lobby

The Choreography explores the world through movement and examines how the way we move can affect what we think, see and feel.

The Choreography is based on audience participation. Everyone in the audience gets a pair of headphones through which they will hear a voice telling them how to move, how to relate to their body and how to relate to one another. In other words, there are no dancers in the performance, but it is instead the audience who create The Choreography together.

The Choreography is available in 15 languages. Everyone can listen to the same instructions and have a shared experience, without understanding the same language.

Artist / Company Bio

Johanssons pelargoner och dans is a performing arts group that likes the broad, the kind and the intuitive. We create performances involving the audience physically, focusing on the bodily experience of those who participate. Our work is usually aimed at children and young people and we have a great interest in pedagogical encounters, regardless of target group. Since 2009, we have been holding workshops, producing tour performances, giving lectures and running projects. The founders of and those who work with Johanssons pelargoner och dans are dance educators, choreographers, and dancers.
