Performance & Dance programme

In 2016, Wanås Konst began actively making performance and dance a part of the programme. Not just a one-time event, but a long-term investment in “live art,” art that must be experienced in the moment and requires your presence then and there. This means more chances to take part in dance and performance at Wanås. This year we dive into the specific effects of dance and choreography using the sculpture park and the outlying areas as the grounds for a series of live art encounters and experiments in the form of performances and workshops. The artists dialogue with the existing collection and nature. They play and tease, and deepen our connection to visitors of all ages. They change the way we experience our bodies in relation to time and space.

“Coming into contact with art at Wanås Konst is not superficial. It is live, physical and could be characterized as unavoidable: you feel the dirt under your feet, understand the weight of your body relative to a river of concrete, sense its width in a maze of trees, or its height distorted through bent glass. You seek out the specific work you would like to see and your sense of time is altered. The journey becomes just as important as the object you are looking for. Art is all around. Nature is all around. You activate it, it activates you.” – Rachel Tess, Associate Curator Dance, Wanås Konst

Wanås Konst caters to a younger audience than ever before with Den kosmiska havsträdgårdspassagen—an interactive, choreographed installation for babies from 2 to 18 months created by choreographer Peter Mills along with Rachel Tess (dance) and Marta Cicionesi (set design). From strange wonders of the cosmos, under the sea, and in the botanical world, Mills creates a voyage of discovery for the participants.
