Leandoer Håstad/Yung Lean premieres at Way Out West Gothenburg in August, co-produced by Luger.
ON THE CUSP by choreographer Ian Kaler with music by Planningtorock premieres in January 2019 in Vienna, co-produced by Tanzquartier Vienna, Norrlandsoperan Umeå and PACT Zollverein, Essen.


Premiere for NEAR at Way Out West

In Eleanor Bauer’s and Jonatan Leandoer Håstad/Yung Lean’s NEAR, twelve dancers meet in a swamp house, hovering in a no-man’s land between nature and civilization. Together they bring a monstrous dream to life, blending genres of music concert and surrealist story ballet in a cinematic theaterscape. Amplifying the persistent strangeness within and out there, NEAR is full-disclosure and 100% sincere but never familiar, intimate but never comfortable. Premiere at Way Out West Festival in Gothenburg, Friday 10th of August.
