Nordic Baroque Dancers’ 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 preserved choreographies from the 17th and 18th centuries, 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.
The company was founded in 2007, since which time its performances have included appearances at the Drottningholm Court Theatre, the Warsaw Opera Kameralna, the Innsbrucker Festwochen der Alten Musik, the Musikfestspiele Potsdam Sanssouci, the Swedish Royal Festivals, and as part of the Stockholm Early Music Festival.
