There hasn’t been a blog post in a while, but that doesn’t mean that Nomodaco hasn’t been busy… Last weekend we premiered our latest production – Under – at ZebraDans in Stockholm. “Under” is a Swedish word with multiple meanings and associations like “Wonders” and “Underneath” and with this interactive performance for babies between 4-18 months (!) we have tried to capture these different nuances.
After years of planning, We are happy to be in Umeå working with our dream project!

I´ve been back home in Sweden for a couple of days now and I´m still thinking about the places and the people I met under my mini-tour in Ostrobothnia, Finland. I visited retirement homes in Närpes, Korsnäs and Nykarleby where I performed my solo Kärleken till Tangon och Karaoken. These towns have a Swedish-speaking majority and very different Swedish dialects.
I noticed that every time when I was preparing my scenography to the sounds of the “Tangomestarit” cd the room filled up quickly. A slipper started to move to the beat. A head was bobbing. Maby these songs brought back memories, maby the roses were telling them something. I could see how they were enjoying sitting there, watching and listening. Everybody were there long before my performance started. It was peaceful. They where gathering around me in a big circle. It feelt good to dance, like a big hug.
After my performance I held a sitting workshop for both the elderly and the staff, after witch we sat down for a cup of coffee and chat, enjoyed some more Finnish tango music. One day a man started singing and another day two people entered the floor to do a finnish tango. It was touching.
I feel very greatful to have been able to visit these retirement homes. Thank you so much, especially Annika Sillander at Regional dance centre of Ostrobothnia for having me back. /Lina <3
We are now touring with our children’s performance Papiljong. We started in Sundsvall one week ago with a full house performance at Kulturmagasinet, a good start. After that Mora and Umeå at NorrlandsOperan and Kultcentrum.
Now we are sitting with cup of coffee after a great monday morning show. Standing ovations and lot’s of love.
Storuman and Tärnaby coming up, See you soon!

Anna and Tove has recently started rehearsing the play HEM LJUVA ÅLIDHEM (picture above) together with Skuggteatern in Umeå – a multi-
disciplinary performance about the city’s most most renowned and notorius neighbourhood. It premieres the 11th of October – be sure to get your tickets!
In November the children’s performance PAPILJONG will tour the regions of Dalarna, Västernorrland and Västerbotten. It’s a duet for the youngest (3-6 years) and their parents about lifing and landing – about daring to do everything you want… Check the calender for dates!
The three members of Nomodaco are packing their bags – this summer Carolina, Tove and Anna all go west to research, network and take workshops!
Carolina will continue her research project My Body is Every Body, and return to New York, where she will make recordings for the performance as well as the film “Mothers” with dancers – age 60-75 – within the Duncan, Graham and Cunningham technique. The project is a collaboration with levitra gel video artists Melissa Ramos and Rachael Brown, and composer Johannes Burström.
Tove has received a grant to work with the acclaimed choreographer and film director Noemi Lafrance in New York, and will draw upon her knowledge within making film for dance.
