The Göteborg Opera and the Gothenburg Dance and Theatre Festival jointly celebrate their 30th anniversaries with a fusion of dance and live music.

The Gothenburg Dance and Theatre Festival and the Göteborg Opera’s dance season will both open with a world premiere, in celebration of their joint 30th anniversary.

In Atlas Song, international star choreographers Imre and Marne van Opstal and the singer, musician and composer Anna von Hausswolff combine dance and live music in an innovative, ingenious and poetic production.

The van Opstal siblings are a creative duo from the Netherlands who, after enjoying successful careers as dancers at Nederlands Dans Theater (NDT) and the Batsheva Dance Company, are taking dance stages worldwide by storm with their expressive and imaginative choreographies.

Anna von Hausswolff, from Gothenburg, is known for her uncompromising music, where her soulful voice hovers in unusual musical landscapes accompanied by the pipe organ. Since her breakthrough in 2009, she has mesmerised listeners worldwide with her concerts, in which the audience is drawn into her musical world with ritual-like intensity.

The van Opstals and von Hausswolff team up to create a type of performing art that we have never previously experienced.

A collaboration between the Göteborg Opera and the Gothenburg Dance and Theatre Festival. Part of the Göteborg Opera’s 30th anniversary celebrations.
