A dance installation that reactivates the site of exercise.

On three occasions during the day, five dancers will take possession of Telefonplans torg outside Midsommargården. With sound and light, the place the gym becomes a stage! Each installation takes 15 minutes. DaAnnNCeeR speculates on the body ideals we jog towards in the gym, a renegotiation of bodily logics, representations and our panting sounds (when we lift the grocery bag at ICA). Because how do we actually tense our muscles on the yoga mat?

Sebastian Lingserius is a freelance choreographer and dancer based in Stockholm. In 2010, he completed his Master education in choreography at the University of Dance in Stockholm. Shortly thereafter, he started his platform KASS production. Sebastian is a choreographer that looks in the outer edges of dance. He has turned Superman inside out, given the audience a calf-massage during performances, dived into the post-cyborgian and let a robot explain its bodily straints, dissected the philosopher Deleuze thought-body, and had a worm dance Gaga. In his work there is a strong interest in constructing psycho-somatic practices, non-straight bodies and to reclaim the language of dance. To dissect the power that governs the body’s philosophy and politics. Sebastian has been active in the Swedish dance field for the past twenty years. He operates in both the intimate and the large dance formats. Works with a multitude of cutting-edge artists annually and prefers courage over predictability.
