Our vision is to nurture and broaden the view of baroque dance by working with different choreographers and project-based teams in a large variety of contexts. Be it productions based on repertoire choreographies, or new creations using the baroque aesthetic as a point of departure, the work is driven by the conviction that the 17th and 18th-century dance arts have an intrinsic value, independently of their historical context.
In 2015-2017 we played a key role in the production of Lully’s opera Armide, staged and choreographed by Deda Cristina Colonna in Innsbruck, Potsdam and Warsaw, featuring dancers based in Sweden, France, Germany, Czech Republic and the US.
Since 2014 we organize the International Summer Academy of Baroque Dance at Löftadalen Conservatory, a two week summer course south of Gothenburg, which each year attracts over 50 teachers and students from all over the world.
