Bombazo Dance Co

In Milteri Tucker's words:
"Bombazo is a non-profit drum and dance company, whose mission is to preserve, educate and showcase traditional Afro Puerto Rican Bomba and Afro Caribbean and traditional folkloric elements. Thus, creating a new movement vocabulary while still preserving the authenticity of our culture. The word "Bombazo" signifies a Bomba jam. It is where the community gathers to celebrate life through its rhythms, song and dance. 
As choreographer and artistic director, our audiences experience how a simple element can be taken to new heights and beyond. Therefore, our mission is to further enrich the knowledge of all who come and support our dance concerts within the universal language of dance and dance education."​

From ballet to theatre

Four Freedoms Park

Franklin D. Roosevelt Four Freedoms Park is the first memorial dedicated to the former President in his home state of New York.
The Park celebrates the Four Freedoms, as pronounced in President Roosevelt's famous January 6, 1941 State of the Union speech.
Located on the southern tip of Roosevelt Island in New York City, it is the last work of Louis I. Kahn.

Dreaming of the lights

Lapporten means Goose valley in Northern Sami. Nevertheless, the gate to the valley looks straight from the Lord of the Rings and it was carved by glaciers during the last glacial period.

In January Orion rises between the iconic Nissuntjarro and Tjuonatjakka peaks, as a guide and as an invitation to go, following an inevitable urge to cross the frozen land.

Movements @ Malmö Stadsteater

Movements departs from the parallel stories of displaced people who arrived in Malmö in the fall of 2015 and of the volunteers who greeted them. It is also the tale of how taking pause can sometimes puncture a commitment to humanity and solidarity, creating a void where fear, distrust and divisiveness find space to grow.

These stories are expressed through individual voices and choruses, as well as through the physical language and magic of the circus. Movements is directed by Tilde Björfors with music created by composer Irya Gmeyner.

Limits

Cirkus Cirkör's voice as an advocate for crossing boundaries has grown stronger. In Limits the work and questions continue: Are limits real or imaginary? Are they a dead end, or a motivation to search for new paths?
Someone has drawn up lines and divided the world into various delimited areas. We build fences around our gardens, walls, barricades, place armed soldiers around our countries. But human beings have never wanted to stay in one and the same place.

Micros Labos Urbains

In the frame of the evolution of the project Grand Vernier-Meyrin-Airport a competition is launched by Geneva’s Canton to set up a community project leading to an exhibition involving the neighbourhoods’ residents and workers. This led to a participative photographic project aiming to rediscover Geneva outlying neighbourhoods of Meyrin and Vernier through their inhabitants and the surprising visual association between a displaced version of themselves and some usual still neglected places. The photographs have been mostly realised with a view camera in order to be printed in very large formats to reveal the details and dignify the neighbourhood and its inhabitants.
