a place

  • MELO Collective

In MELO Collective’s latest performance a place the space is shared by the audience, dancers, musicians, singers and students from Kung Saga Highschool and the Royal Swedish Ballet School.

"An interplay on equal terms. So beautiful and moving with a place for everybody", Anna Ångström SvD

With 22 people on stage, live music, singing and dancing a place invites the audience to an all-art performance where the boundaries between spectators, stage, movements and tones are blurred.
 

From 13 years

Motivation of the jury:

a place is a particularly unique production and experience. This is a piece where dance, choreography and music are performed by professional dancers, musicians and secondary school students with and without disabilities. Hierarchies about who can do what, and who has which technique or experience, are erased, and remaining is a performance in which more than 20 individuals together create dramatic art that is both ingenious and sensory.
