About Cullberg Ballet

Cullberg Ballet has performed all over the world and is an important element in the international presentation of Swedish culture. The company also engages in national outreach through its tours within Sweden. The company collaborates with a variety of national and international choreographers and performing artists who create works for large as well as small stages. Cullberg Ballet’s activities encompass projects and productions including site specific appearances and collaboration with dance training programs.
 
Cullberg Ballet was founded by Birgit Cullberg in 1967 under the auspices of Riksteatern. The company currently has 16 dancers from nearly as many countries. Since its inception, the stage personalities and technical strength of its dancers have been Cullberg Ballet’s defining characteristics. Cullberg Ballet is part of Riksteatern, Sweden’s National Touring Theatre.
Cullberg Ballet's activities can be divided into four categories:
 
Cullberg large stages
Cullberg Ballet's productions for larger stages in Sweden and abroad.

Cullberg up close
Cullberg Ballet's more intimate pieces for smaller stages. These productions enable the audience to get closer to the dancers and the company to tour to new places.

Cullberg out in context
Cullberg Ballet's site specific project that takes parts of the company's activity out of its usual context to other settings than the traditional. The choreography plays with the space's  unique composition of architecture, history and environment and is created through investigating its hidden meanings. Out in context wants to challenge artists and audiences and reach out to more with an invitation to share impressions and expressions. 

Cullberg to come
Cullberg Ballet's focus on the next generation dancers, choreographers and audiences. To come includes internships and cooperations with dance educations.
