Since 1997 LAVA-Dansproduktion has been involved in numerous teaching and performance projects in Sweden and internationally. We have collaborated with dance artists, actors, physical performers, composers and visual artists. By returning regularly to the countries where we have been invited to bring our work to, we have built relations and collaborations with artists that stretch over many years.
Lava-Dansproduktion was founded in 1997 by choreographers/ performers Benno Voorham and Sybrig Dokter. The aim of the organisation is to stimulate development of contemporary dance and dance-theatre both in a national and international setting. We are striving to forge relationships between artists and organisations across borders. Lava-Dansproduktion has collaborated with dance artists, performers and visual artists.
some previous projects
The project Tomorrow’s Witnesses took place in Hammerfest, Luleå and Rovaniemi 2018-2019. It occupied itself with the events in the North of Scandinavia during the end of WW2 and more recent events. It links the stories of people that survived the atrocities of WW2 with the stories of refugees today that fled from wars to find a safe place in the Nordic region.
