social and historical injustice and oppression. In a parallel angle, she explores and gives space to
celebration of her ancestors dance – the dance she sees and feels as a personal and cultural heritage.
The combination of african rhythms and contemporary dance, giving birth to a dance vocabulary
that she explores with Kronos Dance Company.
The company consists of movers/performers exploring basic human aspects, which exists beyond
words and are therefore comprehended regardless of culture, language or geographic/biological
Kronos dancers have as a main focus, to connect with the untrained and the unpolished that lies
hidden and forgotten somewhere within themselves. They give it room, allow it to be and to express
itself through movement, rhythm, singing and chanting.
Their work varies from indoors performances, site specific and workshops.
