Stina Nyberg works with dance and choreography and graduated from the MA in choreography at DOCH in 2012. Her practice is related to the possibility to through conviction and illusion create new systems of logic in order to construct the world differently, and to act accordingly. Her departure point is always a feminist approach to the body; its social and political construction and ability to move.
Often working in collaboration with others – moving in between independent productions, collectives, state institutions, art and the music scene – she creates a method specific to every situation, including how we work into what we work with.
Stina has presented several independent works on the relation between sound and movement, as well as investigations of the polical history of the body. She choreographed the Shaking the habitual show with the Swedish band The Knife and performed on tour in Europe and US between 2012-14. In 2015 she choreographed a new work for the Cullberg Ballet. In 2016, she choreographed the performance Shapes of States which investigates the relationship between the healthy body and the healthy state, with a starting point in Meyerhold’s biomechanics. Nyberg have for several years collaborated with the choreographers Amanda Apetrea, Nadja Hjorton, Halla Ólafsdóttir and Zoë Poluch under the name Samlingen – investigating dance history from a feminist perspective.

Immunsystemet is a performance that in an intimate setting investigates the everyday and ordinary discomforts of the body. It departs from the political history of the body and the back side of well being, highlighting the soft, leaking, vulnerable parts of organic life.

In Splendour, sound is the origin of every movement. The seven performers on stage dance themselves sweaty in a corporeal translation from music to dance. Here, a ”techno practice” that focus on the affective capacity of music allows rhythm to enter the bodies of both dancers and audience. Splendour was created through a daily practice […]
