Gunilla Heilborn touches the minds and hearts of her audiences. With cinematic timing and dry humour, she shows us the extraordinary by presenting the ordinary. Her interest lies in themes such as collectivity, self-inflicted alienation, idealism, nonsense philosophy, and the humour in imperfection and in the failing of grand ideas.

The company gives around 30 performances annually; in Stockholm, at Dansens Hus, MDT or Kulturhuset/Stadsteatern, and on tour nationally and internationally.

Productions like Potato Country, Alaska, The Five Year Plan, This is not a love story and Gorkij Park 2 have rendered her invitations to some of the most prestigious performing arts festivals in Europa and Asia. In the season 2014-2015 Gorkij Park 2 and This is not a love story are on the repertoire and a new production, The Knowledge, is on its way. In Gorkij Park 2 the bitter cold and fading dreams of utopia play the leading roles. In This is not a love story, the story becomes not about the destination, but the transformation and the reflection along the way.
