We are GöteborgsOperans Danskompani

GöteborgsOperans Danskompani is one of the most prestigious contemporary dance companies in Europe. The 38 dancers, of over 20 different nationalities, all have strong individual creative identities and collectively form an energetic, dynamic force.

Our repertory consists mainly of original and exclusive works, created on location in Gothenburg, by some of today’s most renowned choreographers and emerging artists in collaboration with international teams, composers and musicians.

Our distinctive character has proven to be highly attractive on the international dance scene. We are constantly in demand as an acclaimed guest at prominent festivals and venues all over the
world, receiving more invitations than we are able to meet. The 2017/2018 season, GöteborgsOperans Danskompani will be guesting places such as Luxembourg, Paris, Winterthur, Geneva, Fribourg, Ludwigshafen and Wiesbaden.
