The Performance

 

The Choreography explores the world through movement and examines how the way we move can affect what we think, see and feel. In The Choreography there is no wrong move you can make, everything turns out just right!

The Choreography is an interactive performance 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 one’s body and how to relate to one another. In other words, there are no dancers or actors in the performance, but it is instead the audience itself which creates The Choreography together.

 

A performing arts experience in 15 languages

In The Choreography, each person in the audience can choose whether they want to experience the performance in Arabic, Dari, English, Farsi, Finnish, Kurdish (Sorani), Meänkieli, Northern Sami, Pashto, Romani (Arli), Russian, Turkish, Somali, Suthern Sami or Swedish.

The audience can listen to the same instructions and have a shared experience without understanding the same language. We hope that The Choreography can serve as an equal meeting place for people who don´t speak the same language.
