When Dancenet Sweden last met Stina Nyberg it was on a sweaty dancefloor with pumping techno. This time Stina enters deeper into generations of movement languages, to refurnish and to find something new.

Stina Nyberg is a choreographer who moves within different border lands, thematically and in terms of form. She has turned Mozart inside out, created seances in a tent and dissected the male genius Tesla. The base of her artistry lies in her interest in undervalued knowledge, magical practices and the language of power. Whatever she tackles she always starts with the political and social history of the human body – Make Hay While the Sun Shines is no exception.

With Nyberg’s feministic view of the human body and with a generation-wide transcendent ensemble of five women, Make Hay While the Sun Shines bear in mind the dancers’ personal expressions. Here the dancers’ personal history of movements takes place. Their dances and movements, which have followed them through their personal careers, are gathered, mixed and tossed around to create a dance collage in constant change. The performance embraces the body and dance history, pays homage to movements, styles and expressions that exist within us, and has the potential to create new and other styles of movements.

Make Hay While the Sun Shines is a dance performance compared with life itself: changeable, fascinating, unsuccessful, stumbling, lovable and completely unpredictable.
