Two acclaimed Nordic choreographers each present a new work created for GöteborgsOperans Danskompani. Although very different, the choreographers both share a down-to-earth humanism and a dreamlike portrayal of universal human hopes.

Johan Inger

Swedish choreographer Johan Inger has created works for some forty top dance companies worldwide, and has been both artistic director of the Cullberg Ballet and house choreographer at Nederlands Dans Theater. His latest work in Gothenburg was the suggestive Falter (2010) involving nine dancers and 64 ropes. His Carmen – awarded a Benois de la Danse (the dance world’s equivalent to an Oscar) – was performed here as a guest performance by the Spanish National Dance Company in spring 2018. Now he presents a new work inspired by the dancers’ creativity and individual artistry.

Choreography by Alan Lucien Øyen


Don’t forget that we offer introductions on the Small Stage before all dance performances (except premieres and guest performances).

Spoken introductions

Spoken introductions shed light on the work and the choreographic process. They start 1 hour before the performance and last about 20 minutes. Free admission, limited number of places.

Physical introductions

Physical introductions are held on selected occasions. Here you can gain deeper insight into the performance you are about to see by watching and trying out movement together with dancers from the company and other audience members.

Physical introductions start 1 hour and 15 minutes before the performance and last around 45 minutes.

More information about the upcoming physical introductions and how to book tickets will be published on this page as the premiere approaches.
