Danskompaniet Spinn is a professional dance company based in Gothenburg, Sweden. They are passionate about the art of dance and about challenging stereotypes regarding what dance is and can be. It is about different bodies with different functions and new ways of creating and presenting dance art. In their world, everybody is welcome. It is not about how many pirouettes you can do, but what you want to express with the pirouette that you do.
Spinn was founded in 2010 by Artistic Director Veera Suvalo Grimberg. They are an international company working with Swedish and international choreographers and composers. They work with people who are interested in an artistic dialogue, and who want to explore and develop both their own as well as Danskompaniet Spinns artistic expression.

Description: You are welcome. Into a world that’s almost private, but one that we share together. Where the love between two people tells a story of rivalry, tenderness, fellowship and sensuality. About an invisible line between liking and desiring.

Description: Skirtpower is about the skirt as an ambiguous symbol of our society’s view of our bodies. About different codes for masculinity and femininity and expressions of sexuality. That the skirt, throughout history, has been a garment communicating masculinity and power, but how today it’s so clearly a feminine garment.
