With 12 Songs, choreographer Kenneth Kvarnström presents Ane Brun’s music in an innovative guise. In a close collaboration with the artist herself, GöteborgsOperans Danskompani, the Göteborg Opera Orchestra and guest musicians, he creates a dazzling new work for our Main Stage. A flourishing ornament that unites the serious with the ridiculous in a mix of dance cascades, poetry, universal human longing and joyful curiosity.

Since her debut in 2003, the Stockholm-based Norwegian singer has gained a large following in Scandinavia and the rest of the world. A multiple award winner, Ane Brun has made numerous acclaimed stage appearances with symphony orchestras. She has performed at sold-out stadiums as well as in connection to the Nobel Prize ceremony.  

Kenneth Kvarnström, from Finland, is one of the Nordic region’s most successful choreographers. After several years as the dance director of such cultural institutions as Dansens Hus and Kulturhuset Stadsteatern in Stockholm, he has returned to working as a freelance choreographer. Infused with subtle surprises, his choreography speaks a clear language where a musical flow of movement is interwoven with sung lyrics.

Costume Design by fashion and costume designer Astrid Olsson, whose stage creations are an experience in their own right. The costumes crescendo in pace with the twelve songs, developing from minimalist to extravagant.
