Minna Krook Dans
Minna Krook Dans is a dance company that performances for children and adults which was founded in 1999 and is led by choreographer Minna Krook. The company is based in Stockholm, but is touring throughout Sweden. The company has also made several guest appearances abroad. Minna Krook is one of the most established choreographers of dance performances for children and she has, among other things, created the first dance performance in Sweden for babies, “Ah, hallo baby”. Minna Krook Dans’ performances are colourful and surprising of them mixed dance, text, art and especially composed music. They have a subtle and humorous way to point to the small important things in life.
Inspired by dramatists such as Antonin Artaud, Jerzy Grotowski, Eugenio Ionesco and Samuel Beckett the physical theater company Iraqi Bodies was formed.
The members of the company were young theater and performing arts students studying at The Fine Arts Institute in Baghdad, Iraq. Starting out in 2002 they performed at festivals in Egypt, Jordan, South Korea and Iraq until 2007, when one of the members was killed due to the increased sectarian violence that took hold of the country after the US led invasion in 2003.
Tomas Rajnai and Jens Nielsen forms Osynliga Teatern (translated as ”Invisible Theatre”). They produce interdisciplinary performances focusing on experimentation and collaborative creations and invite their audiences to participate as well as observe.
Their work takes whichever form is best to tell the story and always responds to the site, setting and the imagination of the audience.
