Ellen Söderhult

Ellen Söderhult is a dancer and choreographer living in Stockholm. Her most recent piece GROV / ROUGH deals with the monstrous feelings and textures of bittersweet love. Previous choreographic works have often concerned the collective as a protagonist and texture in sound and movement. As in the team-sporty punk ballet How to do things and with Romance and Rudy, as well as in pieces where choir singing and vibrating base has been central elements such as Shane et al and DUNKA DUNKA.

Her work has been shown at venues such as Heizhaus (Berlin), Black Box (Oslo), Dansehallerne, Danseatelier (Copenhagen), Bastun och Båthuspaviljongen (Mariehamn), Ateneum (Helsinki), Dansstationen (Malmö), Dansmässan/Scenkonstmuséet, MDT, Weld, Hägerstensåsens medborgarhus (Stockholm), DansPlats Skog (Stråtjära), Dansinitiativet (Luleå) and Massmanska kvarnen (Ronneby).

In 2015 she initiated an open source platform for exchange within artistic practices called Nobody’s Business together with Eleanor Bauer and Alice Chauchat. Ellen is educated at DOCH/SKH and received the Cullberg award in 2022.

Ghost Dances

Dancing as in: to fall apart and collect oneself in a different way all the time

Anna Grip

Beginning upon and within the soft surface between dance and dancer, environment and self, Ghost Dances / Spökdanser is a return to past dances and imprints of the solo dancer: experiences, histories and doings that engraved themselves and softened edges – things that maybe deserve a tribute dance or, possibly, a question mark.

Ghost Dances / Spökdanser is a collection of dances, dances that echoes in the body of the dancer.
