Spring 2019 has been both intense and incredibly good. We premiered Miramos, our new performance for children created by Torgunn Wold and Paulo Serantes. Miramos has been presented for children and adults at Frölunda kulturhus and later at Hagateatern where we hosted shows during two weeks. It has been so rewarding to follow the work at Spinnstudion and later how the performance developed in the meeting with the young audiences.
May finally saw the Gothenburg premiere for the performance Skirtpower at Folkteatern. On May 10 and 11 we gave two nearly sold out performances for a touched and moved audience. Massive thanks to everyone who came and to Folkteatern for opening up your house for us!
In addition to this we’ve given workshops at Dalheimers hus in Gothenburg. We presented the performance Garden of Trees in Borås and gave the performances Kurvatur och Solo for a sold-out Palladium in Alingsås.
In February, the SVT program Sverige! did a segment about Spinn where they a.o. followed the work with Miramos and spoke both to our dancers Emilia Wärff and Felicia Sparrström as well with Veera Suvalo Grimberg and choreographer Torgunn Wold. The program is available over at SVT-play. Click here to see the program.
Our collaboration with Götebors Konserthus and the project Relaxed Performance continued with a highly acclaimed afternoon at Stenhammarsalen at the end of March. Below here you can have a look at a trailer from the performance in October last year.
In May Veera visited Scenkonstbiennalen 2019 to talk about the EU project Moving Beyond Inclusion during a talk hosted by Kreativa Europa Desk kultur.
During Spring we’ve also had the great joy of welcoming new dancer Felicia Sparrström to Spinn. Suring Spring Felicia has worked both with Miramos and Skirtpower and in April she was invited to Candoco Dance Company in London to work with the company under the direction of British choreographer Theo Clinkard.
And finally we would once again just like to congratulate our dancer Emilia Wärff who became a mother in April. So amazing!
