Weld Company


Weld, an artist-run, experimental platform in Stockholm, initiated Weld Company in 2013 – running three months per year. Weld Company is aiming to rediscover and re-valuate the old institution of a dance company and is updating the company form through a collective work conducted by one of Weld’s clearly given structures, with room for spontaneous, individual wishes and needs. Weld Company could be seen as an enabling structure where new constellations and ideas evolve. The main focus is on the space freed to practice the art form. To become the dancing body, the dancing community and through this pose questions about dance and choreography today.

The company gives commissions to choreographers and have so far worked with: Rebecka Stillman, Litó Walkey, Michael Kliën, Efva Lilja, Margaretha Åsberg, Julian Weber, Andros Zins-Browne, Georgia Vardarou and Matthias Sperling and the fall 2018 with Yvonne Rainer and Frédéric Gies

The company members are: Anna Westberg, Pär Sacklén, Caroline Byström, Elias Girod, Josefin Larsson-Olin, Robin Dingemans, Kajsa Sandström, Sandra Lolax, Sybrig Dokter, Noah Hellwig, Marie Fahlin, Robert Malmborg, Hanna Strandberg, Disa Krosness
