You have longed for this. Dance that you can feel. A group of people with more or less unusual steps. A concrete and poetical representation. A choreography in between problem and liberation. Movingly simple.
»Pink promises« takes off in an investigation of bodies, identity and contemporary dance in relation to Swedish bandstand (in Swedish “dansband”) culture and music
»A christian evening« is an attempt at a physical and philosophical reflection on body, critique and christianity.
»The principles« is a piece about norms for the performance of bodies, movement and choreography. It dealt with the constructions of itself, on conventions, definitions and on issues of power surrounding choreography.
»King Kristina« might have been Sweden’s first queer feminist work of dance for children and it was marketed as a courageous show for grade school children. The work deals with themes of love, identity and respect.
»They give thought body« was an attempt to integrate queer theory into the choreographic work in theme as well as in method and expression.
»Paradigm« was produced at the University of Dance and was Malins final project at the program of choreography.
»Project – gender neutral army on a mission« was an attempt to create a language of gender neutral movement. The process was a physical examination of form, movement, time, space and energy, and an analysis of what is perceived as gender specific in a contemporary dance context.
»Solo« was created in 1998 as Malin’s first solo for her twenty year old self during the program of choreography but it has lived on since.
