Ekmans Triptych - A Study of Entertainment
A full evening work in three parts by Alexander Ekman. Three separate works weave through a multitude of expressions, where dance meets dialogue, wit becomes wistful and the meaningful cohorts with the meaningless. What is entertainment?
At Kulturfestivalen in Stockholm Cullberg Ballet will appear with dance installations by Alexander Ekman, originally created as a gift to Moderna Museet in Stockholm for its 50th bithday.
High heels too
Canadian choreographer Benoît Lachambre creates a new piece for six of the Cullberg Ballet dancers. The idea for the new work came when Lachambre took part in a contemporary dance project at one of Montréal’s burlesque clubs, and created a solo on high heels for a dancer.
The Cullberg dancers once again present their own works at MDT in Stockholm. Choreographers: Alexandra Campbell, Adam Schütt, Andrea Martini, Hanako Hoshimi-Caines, Shumpei Nemoto, Johanna Lindh and Isaac Spencer.
The dancers present their own works on our home turf at Riksteatern in Hallunda, south of Stockholm. Join us for dancers in motorcycle helmets, video art installations, visual art, and a new version of Hamlet!
Negro con flores
Johan Inger was the artistic director of Cullberg Ballet from 2003 to 2008. As a choreographer he has created numerous prominent works and his Negro con Flores was a huge success when it premiered in the autumn of 2005. Johan Inger is the recipient of many awards.
Three works by three choreographers. This autumn Cullberg Ballet tours to Korea and Norway with three works by three contemporary choreographers - xspectacle by Crystal Pite, Negro con Flores by Johan Inger and the dance film 40 M UNDER by Alexander Ekman.

The Strindberg Project
Opinions on August Strindberg are many and divided. In spring 2012 Cullberg Ballet will be inviting dancer and choreographer Tilman O’Donnell and director Melanie Mederlind to be inspired by, comment on or oppose this Swedish icon.
The Way Things Go
The Way Things Go is a choreographed chain of causes and effects. Treating the body as a combination of controlled will and factual mechanics, the dancers continually reinvent the circumstances to which they are subjected.
Opinions on Swedish icon author August Strindberg are many and divided. In director Melanie Mederlind's new work for Cullberg Ballet; Translations, the company encounters Strindberg in a new form. Exclusive, unexpected and up close. Translations is one of two works in The Strindberg Project with premiere in March 2012.
True Stories of Castaways and Other Survivors
Norwegian choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen created a new piece for Cullberg Ballet in spring 2011; True Stories of Castaways and Other Survivors. Eight of Cullberg Ballet's dancers perform in this illustrative piece.
xspectacle was originally created for the dance company BMJ Danse in Montréal and was highly acclaimed by the audience and press after its premiere in 2004.
In November 2009, for the first time ever, Cullberg Ballet made an entrance on the Stockholm House of Dance’s small stage with two new pieces. One of them was Canadian choreographer Benoît Lachambre's first cooperation with Cullberg Ballet; JJ's voices. The dancers carry Janis Joplin's songs through their bodies.
In Cullberg Ballet's Playback the audience gets to chose theme and movement character for what is going to happen on stage. With those choices as starting point the dancers improvise in different constellations and new combinations emerge. Together the audience and the dancers create unique combinations.
