Artist talk: Björn Säfsten

A conversation between Chief Curator and Deputy Director Richard Julin and choreographer Björn Säfsten and dancers Anja Arnquist, Sophie Augot, Allison Ahl, Linda Blomqvist and Madeleine Lindh.

From April 14th to 18th 2011, Björn Säfsten’s Corduroy de-constructed, a conceptual performance in which the choreographer presents movements for observation, inspection and inspiration, was performed at Magasin 3. Richard Julin discusses the process of deconstructing and remounting the work Corduroy with Björn Säfsten and his dancers. They explore what happens when a work originally created for a large stage is broken down into three separate yet corresponding parts and moved from a traditional stage to the more intimate gallery space at Magasin 3.
