A sparkling personality on the contemporary dance scene, choreographer Alexander Ekman trained at the Swedish Royal Ballet and has danced with the Nederlands Dans Theater and the Ballet Cullberg before turning to choreography. His language, both visceral and tinged with humour, combines theatricality and classical and contemporary vocabulary alike. Best known for the spectacular quality of his pieces with their dreamlike imagery, with metallic structures, dancers suspended in space, elevations.
