Autumn 2022

Summer is knocking and happily greets that now it is time for holiday! Before Spinn takes a summer break, there are a few things left on the agenda. We also take a look at what awaits us this autumn.

Guest visits, residence and projects
Spinn’s artistic director Veera Suvalo Grimberg visits Helsinki and the dance festival Ice Hot Nordic Dance. Veera participates July 1 in the seminar Equity in dance production: What are we doing and what are we missing?. During week 26, Spinn’s dancer Emilia Wärff goes to Scenkonst Gerlesborg at a dance residence for her upcoming solo project. On September 1, Emilia participates in the Conference on Culture and Disability at Moderna Museet in Stockholm.

We are also incredibly happy that Hannah Felicia is going on tour in Iceland! For two whole weeks we are there and play. The performance will also participate with an excerpt on the Swedish pavilion during the Tanzmesse in Düsseldorf. Not only that, Spinn will also present Hannah Felicia on November 10 during Dansmässan at Dansens hus in Stockholm.

Workshops
Of course, there are a lot of workshops booked this autumn and among these is a new addition! Dansa en bok / Tanssia Kirja is a multilingual workshop in Swedish, Finnish and body language. It is a method where dance and music are used to stimulate reading and language learning and self-creation. The workshop is led by Veera Suvalo Grimberg and is for children 4-7 years.

This and more exciting things are waiting and surely it sounds exciting? Spinn wishes you a happy summer!

Throwback of the spring

What have we done this spring? A lot! We look back and review what we did in the spring of 2022.

Stabat Mater
We started the year a bit sluggishly with a few canceled workshops that warned of another uncertain semester. But then it turned around! When the restrictions eased in early February, we could finally see the light in the tunnel. From January to April, there was rehearsals of the performance Stabat Mater. A project that was carried out in collaboration with members from Högsbo Church. April 3rd was the premiere and what a success it was!

Workshops
There have been many workshops. Vågade vågor, Klot & Klimat and Lika Värde workshops have been held for children and youth around the region. There have also been some visits outside the region. Spinn has, among other things, visited Värnamo and Lunnevad Folkhögskola and held workshops for students. In May we visited beautiful Falkenberg and in Härryda kommun more than 20 workshops were held. What a thing!

Resor och föreställningar
Several exciting trips have taken place during the spring. At the end of April we were on our way to a tour in Norrland where we played in Piteå, Pajala and Arvidsjaur with our lovely family performance Miramos. June 12, it was time for the world premiere of Poetissan från Aarenvaara – Paradisets barn which was shown at Studio Acusticum in Piteå! Felicia Sparrström was last week away in a lab in Athens with the Eurpean Beyond Access Lab. This is what Felicia says about the trip: “So fun to meet dancers from all over Europe and share experiences. I brought with me many good tips and ideas about exercises for creating my own material.”

With that in mind, we at Spinn would like to thank everyone who has participated and gilded the spring of 2022. Participants, organizers and of course the audience!

European Beyond Access Lab in Athens

In a few days, it’s time for departure for dancer Felicia Sparrström, to Athens in Greece. For just over a week, Felicia will participate in a lab, organized by the European program Europe Beyond Access. It will be extremely exciting to hear more from Felicia about the lab!

The fifth and last Europe Beyond Access artist laboratory will be hosted at Onassis STEGI in Athens, Greece, from 7 to 12 June. It is aimed at disabled dancers from the project who want to engage in a creative research process and to explore the field of choreography.

Artistic practices and tools of choreographic composition, dramaturgy and contemporary practices, identity and accessibility are some of the topics that will be researched in the lab. This program will be coordinated and curated by choreographer Maria Koliopoulou and dancer/choreographer Demy Papathanasiou. Read more about the event here.

The core partners of the project are British Council (operating for this project in the UK and Poland), Skånes Dansteater (Sweden), Oriente Occidente (Italy), Onassis Stegi (Greece), Holland Dance Festival (The Netherlands), Kampnagel (Germany), and Per.Art (Serbia). It is co-funded by the Creative Europe programme of the European Commission.
