How does Weld Company reactivate the choreography embodied in the company archive? Weld Company revisits Rebecka Stillman’s choreography from 2014 and will research through bodily memories, notes and choreographic instructions.

Rebecka is often interested in protocol-controlled choreographic processes and has a preference for ways of working where you cannot know how the product will ultimately behave. She often works in the form of translation or transposition. In this 2014 work, Rebecka Stillman suggested an exploration of history as a trampoline against unknown territories.

Choreography: Rebecka Stillman
Dance: Caroline Byström, Elias Girod, Per Sacklén, Pavle Heidler, Josefine Larson Olin and Anna Westberg
