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.
