Body of Curiosity is a collaboration between four Nordic and Baltic countries in the field of dance performances for children and young people.

A pilot project that aimed to create possibilities for in-depth research and contextualization surrounding presenting choreographic work for children and young people on tour. We will collect and share methods and knowledge about how to prolong the experiences of the young audience.

The 2019 pilot includes a Nordic/Baltic tour and 26 presentations of “Matsalen”/”The Canteen”, a work by Björn Säfsten for Regionsteater Väst. October the 22nd the performance will be presented in Copenhagen and will move on to Klaipeda, Helsinki and Stockholm during the period from October the 22nd – December the 6th 2019.

Dansehallerne is the Danish partner in Body of Curiosity and the project is supported by the Nordic Culture Fund.
