Andersson Dance

Andersson Dance is an ever-changing constellation of artists in the field of dance collaborating with choreographer Örjan Andersson, based in Stockholm, Sweden.

Andersson Dance, based in Stockholm Sweden, is led by choreographer Örjan Andersson. Since 1996 Örjan has created numerous works for various contexts, from the intimate to the larger format. An exploration of music has always been in focus, regardless if newly composed electronica, folk music or classical works. Andersson Dance continuously invites artists – dancers, composers, light designers, set designers, costume designers, video designer, et al –  for cooperations in various formats. 

Andersson Dance is analogous to Örjan Andersson’s artistry and a language of derived from vastly different experiences of creating choreographic works. This language and his fascination with space and the amount we take hold of has been and is still in focus. Whatever the context, this side of the choreographer has been the common denominator – the movement in space and time. Örjan Anderssons investigation and fascination with movement has been conducted in many disparate contexts. Early on he received opportunities to create choreography for the large institutions nationally and internationally. This gave him an opportunity to develop his language and his view on the larger stages. At the same time Örjan Andersson founded Andersson Dance.

Andersson Dance is funded by the Swedish Arts Council,
the Arts Grants Committe and the Cultural Capital of Stockholm.
