MEDELGYMPA 1 Foto Chrisander Brun.jpeg

"Gympa" [ˈjʏ̀mːpa] is a Swedish form of group aerobic training.

 

MEDELGYMPA is your all-around fitness and art experience. We exercise to very traditional gympa music, and it can get sweaty if you want it to. Bring your metaphorical machete out. Touch down to the sound of creaking wood. Allow your body to turn into a marshmallow in a cup of hot cocoa. MEDELGYMPA is the kind of gympa that encourages laziness. It's gympa deluxe.

 

MEDELGYMPA is both a performing arts event and a session of gympa. The audience is led by a performer and through instructions in headphones.

Koreografin. Fotograf: Rebecka Holmström

THE CHOREOGRAPHY explores the world through movement and examines how the way we move can affect what we think, see and feel. In a small group, the audience follow instructions through headphones in which a voice tells them how to move, how to relate to their own body and to one another.

In THE CHOREOGRAPHY there are no dancers on stage, instead it is the audience that creates THE CHOREOGRAPHY together.
 

Available in 15 languages. Regardless of language, everyone can participate together and listen to the same instructions.

Post Wedding Depression_ Fotograf Jennifer Drotz R

POST WEDDING DEPRESSION is a generous performance for all ages.It explores lust, femininity and the dream of being a bride. In a rampant costume drama, the dancers move through square dance, postmodern dance  and foxtrot where everyone can join!


POST WEDDING DEPRESSION is suitable for rooms other than the stage. It does well in public contexts, on festive occasions, in schoolyards, conferences, festivals, inaugurations, department stores, museums, etc.

Dottertumören

In DOTTERTUMÖREN, dancer Linnéa Sundling and sound artist Cicely Irvine try different ways of dealing with grief, loss and the  sometimes contradictory feelings that can arise when you lose someone close to you. Based on lyrics from Ester Eriksson's comic book Dottertumören and her own experiences of grief, Linnéa and Cicely create performing arts that are on the borderland between dance, music, image and poetry.  

DOTTERTUMÖREN opens up for thoughts about the theme and in connection with the performance a conversation is held with the audience.

PERFORMANCE LENGTH: 30 min

TARGET GROUP: from 10 years

AUDIENCE: 60 people

Created and performed by  LINNÉA SUNDLING & CICELY IRVINE

I have never thought about what lying is and how it feels in the body when I lie. How do I escape when someone notices that I'm not telling the truth? And what should I do with this elephant standing in the middle of the room?

LIE! is a warm and eventful performance where we convince, exaggerate, hide and mislead. In the performance, the audience is invited to a trip to Disneyland, they get to see an elephant grow big and get warm by a campfire.

 
Konstnärligt
Konstnärligt

ARTISTICALLY explores the ballet's movement patterns and vocabulary with various contemporary choreographic methods. A carefree performance that takes ballet to its extremes. As usual, Johanssons pelargoner och dans do not do what you expect, but something else!  The performance is aimed at high school and adult audiences.

Alla dansar i otakt utom jag
Alla dansar i otakt utom jag

When the game during the sports lesson becomes bloody serious, the laughter is silenced and the struggle for survival begins. The rules are constantly changing, sometimes you are in, the second after you're kicked out. In sharp throws and high tempo, roles and positions of power within the group change. In the uninterrupted chase, the frustration and the question of what is really required grows.
