Cullberg Ballet, KammarensembleN and Fotografiska collaborate in a new work, specially composed for Fotografiska. Musicians and dancers meet in this improvised work, based on the collaboration between the varying textures in dance, music and image.

Five instrumental solo pieces from the 20th century form the basis and images from the photographer Fanny Oldenburg projected on the walls, create landscapes together with dance and music. The work is presented within the frame of Cullberg Out in context, the company’s site specific project that takes parts of the company’s activity out of its usual context to other settings than the traditional.

Sunday 6 May, Fotografiska at 13:00-14:00 and 15:00-16:00

Cullberg Ballet
Cullberg Ballet has performed all over the world and is an important element in the international presentation of Swedish culture. The company also engages in national outreach through its tours within Sweden. The company collaborates with a variety of national and international choreographers and performing artists who create works for large as well as small stages. Cullberg Ballet’s activities encompass projects and productions including site specific appearances and collaboration with dance training programs. Anna Grip is the company’s artistic director. Cullberg Ballet was founded by Birgit Cullberg in 1967 under the auspices of Riksteatern. The company currently has 16-18 dancers from nearly as many countries. Since its inception, the stage personalities and technical strength of its dancers have been Cullberg Ballet’s defining characteristics. Cullberg Ballet is part of Riksteatern, Sweden’s National Touring Theatre.


KammarensembleN (KeN) was founded 1984 in Stockholm and has since the beginning had a leading role on the Swedish scene for new music. In collaboration with directors, lighting designers, and video artists, KammarensembleN has presented several acclaimed concerts, in Sweden as well as abroad. The ensemble has 18 members, since Franck Ollu is the artistic director.
