Performance – Kolonisterna

The common history of the Nordic countries goes back more than a thousand years. There have been periods of both friendship and war, but what colonial heritage and responsibilities do we northerners carry with us?


KOLONISTERNA is an interactive dance performance that directs a critical eye at our mutual history, which many prefer to forget, and at the colonial structures that prevail today. Embedded in a satirical atmosphere, the audience witnesses and participates in a study of power and the abuse of power.


KOLONISTERNA is a cascade of choreography, voice and musical interplay in an interactive context where five dancers occupy and conquer the stage.


"The consequences of colonization are one of the most urgent these years, when we in the Nordic countries are trying to face up to our own unpleasant history as colonists. Therefore, it is wonderful that KOLONISTERNA succeed so intensely as a current, dark dance of conscience with this multi-ethnic post-colonialist look at the past. Alongside the sensation of an authoritative leader’s grip on the shoulder."
