2020 Update

Due to the major disruption from the Covid-19 Pandemic we are unfortunately unable to follow through our spring 2020 projects a new work inspired by the emotionally charged and raw imagery of Francis Bacon the Irish born British figurative painter .

The time instead is being used for research and planning for 2 new works upcoming works in the autumn autumn 2020 to performed in Uppsala in October and November.

Although Sweden has not been in full lockdown as other European countries, there are still restrictions in place such as social distancing and limitations on public gatherings and events.

During the spring 2020 I have been guest teaching at the Royal Swedish Ballet ,Cullberg ,and Scapino Ballet ,whilst teaching at The royal Swedish Balett School and Svenska Ballet skolan .Some of these classes are conducted online in accordance to the rekommendations in place in Sweden .

Im looking forward to meeting our dancers and audience in the new season 2020 where hopefully we can start with the all important live performances and interactions with the public .Until then under Vimeo links a selection of works are available to watch .
