Weld Company is aiming to rediscover and revaluate the old institution of Dance Company and is updating the Company form through a collective work conducted by one of Weld clearly given structure with room for spontaneous, individual wishes and needs. Dancers and choreographers from different backgrounds share a common, daily and physical practice. The Company will work with invited choreographers, self made works and instigate the Swedish dance history. The members contribute with and are involved in selecting the content.
