Dance Experimentation in Sweden – by DUG

In the end of November, Dancers without borders tested their own method in Stockholm. With support from the cultural center and Anna-Karin Åberg who let us use their wonderful dance studios. We had the opportunity to meet a group of unaccompanied refugee girls (from ensamkommandes forbund) to dance and to share the space together. Ninna and Sofi from DUG facilitated the exercises and the girls showed to be super fast learners. Some of them had done some little dancing previously and some had no experience, due to themselves. The different exercises were more or less difficult to follow for the individuals but in the end during the cypher everyone could express in their own unique way, bringing their own experience and movement into practice. It was beautiful to see and we had a lot of fun, good talks and requests for more dance!
