Ongoing realities (OR)

Ongoing realities (OR) is an explorative choreographic project investigating the relationship and creative possibilities when merging dance and choreography with various digital technologies. OR is led by choreographers Anna Näsström and Johan Bandholtz and they produce performances for stage and site specific places. The most recent activities include performing an excerpt of their performance "what comes through" at The Swedish Pavilion at Tanzmesse 2022, and the installation/performance of our Art film "o n e" LIVE at The Stockholm Fringe Festival at Telefonfabriken beside a digital premier of the film. More information and links for tickets can be found on the buttons below!

OR is researching visual- and sound based digital technology and site specific landscapes as choreographic tools and how we communicate in/with/because of them. The work is interdisciplinary together with a team of dancers, animators, music artists and designers with competence in Motion Capture, digital animation, Virtual Reality and lately also Augumented Reality. OR is interested in simultaneity, multitudes and the latent creativity in processes of collaborative work.

o n e – a choreographic installation & performance

(Stockholm Premiere at Fringe Festival)

"In a dim room between past, present and future, our art film “o n e” is finding its way back to a live space we can experience together. It is a performance within a concert within a film, presented as an installation. Confused? No worries, join the room and walk around, explore the space and immerse yourself in the movement of sound, dance and visuals coming to life. We invite you to a live installation by Ongoing Realities with an intent to share the room, making it as much yours as ours together."

Anna & Johan

Their performanceconcept "what comes through" premiered November 2021 and they have recieved support from The Swedish Arts Grants Committee, Riksteatern, Rum för dans & Teater Halland and now latest for a developmentperiod from The Swedish Arts council in 2022. 

OR premier review

" In an epic undertaking the performers aesthetically changed the museum space by incorporating animation, digital movement and video footage which all complimented the permeant works of art already exhibited. 

However, my anticipation slowly built up while I observed the dancers collaborate as they prepared for the premier! Every single movement impersonated the thoughtfully selected space - it was almost as if the room and the art were coming to life! "
