Stina Nyberg "Sweet"

Stina Nyberg "Sweet"

MDT is co-producing a new piece by Stina Nyberg, an artist that we have co-produced and supported in different ways over the last years. This time we present a new solo in one of our studios, which make it possible for the performance to run for a longer period. The piece will be present over three weeks, and become a double bill with to other LLB co-productions – dream beam by BamBam Frost and Merkurius by Gunilla Heilborn.

About the piece:
”That it will never come again is what makes life so sweet.” – Emily Dickinson

This story starts with the emergence of a new species, perhaps two hundred thousand years ago. The species does not yet have a name – in fact, nothing does – but it has the capacity to name things. Bit by bit, it spreads to practically every corner of the globe, reassembling the biosphere and the atmosphere on its way. It razes vast forests. It sleeps with its biological cousins and then kills them off. It is, in short, the very asshole of creation.

In a series of ten performances, Stina Nyberg departs from the mind-boggling perspective of billions of years in order to talk about her own assholeness. Or perhaps it is the reverse, departing from her own asshole to talk about eternity. In any case, aided by a dance practising the attention of a bird, she hones in on the details of existence, spanning from the very intimate to the very existential.

Sometimes Sweet is described as a choreography for the attentive. Sometimes just as a mortal dance.
