At the Swedish Performing Arts Gala GöteborgsOperans Danskompani was awarded the prize for “Magic of the Year”. The jury writes: ”We’re haunted by their physical poetry, their precision, their delicate interactions and their absolute focus. Time after time we experience unforgettable works of infinite beauty.”

It was at Saturday’s national annual Performing Arts Gala (Scenkonstgalan) that GöteborgsOperans Danskompani won the award in the “Magic of the year” category.

The jury’s motivation in full:

”We’re haunted by their physical poetry, their precision, their delicate interactions and their absolute focus. GöteborgsOperans Danskompani has taken the world by storm. Leading international choreographers travel many miles to the cold, wet city of Gothenburg for the chance to work with this magic company, made up of 38 dancers from all over the world. Time after time we experience unforgettable works of infinite beauty.

Extreme prowess and variety of expression and form. We’re amazed by their total precision, rhythm and devotion to their craft. We sit open-mouthed, losing all sense of time and space, and become enveloped in the magic worlds they open before us. An ensemble of multi-talented artists.”
