Breath in the Wild

What is dance? Dance can be anything, as well as three dancing tents Target group 3-12 years

Duration 45 min (including 15 minutes activity and after talk)


Breath in the Wild is a contemporary dance performance that invites both young people and adults on an absurd movement journey of transformation. Through comedy and popular culture, the performance plays with the audience’s perceptions of the world around them.

The tent's movements encourage the children to comment, laugh and dance along, an exciting and energetic experience. Are they animals, monsters, humans, Martians, insects – or what? It is free for the imagination and it’s WILD.

National touring: Previously, the show undertook tours within the Stockholm region, showcasing performances in municipalities including Nacka, Järfälla, Huddinge, and Skärholmen. Additionally, it expanded its reach nationally, with appearances in Alingsås and Mölndal municipalities within Västra Götaland County, along with engagements at Barnens Scen in Malmö.

International touring:

Breath in the Wild is a dance performance for the whole family and was created to fit people of all ages, languages and backgrounds.

The piece was designed to tour both nationally and internationally to venues and festivals.

At its core, the project seeks to challenge conventional notions of bodies, identity, and social behavior and we are very interested in meeting audiences from different countries.

Breath in the Wild can be adapted to different venues and has been touring in Sweden and France.

Through the dance performance, we deliver the message that anyone can dance, regardless of their size, shape, gender, or background.

Literally, Anybody can dance, even tents! 

Children comments: “It looked great and I had fun!” "It was funny that they fought and fell over" "It's not every day you see dancing tents" "Can you do this again?!"

Teacher comments “… it was a joy to see the children's reactions to something they had never seen. there was laughters, dancing, and all the wild comments about what is happening on stage, a kind of liberation..."
