Make Hay While the Sun Shines

Choreography: Stina Nyberg

“All that you touch you change. All that you change changes you. The only lasting truth is change.” ― Octavia E. Butler, Parable of the Sower

Choreographer Stina Nyberg has composed a work that gives space to the dance history of a cross-generational cast of dancers and merges them into new forms. Make Hay While the Sun Shines is a series of dances which maps the dancing movements of our histories. Ditching a “neither/nor” in favour of a “yes/and,” it is both a project and a dance of constant change. Stemming from a movement practice based on disharmony, a dance which might be more like life itself is created: irregular, fascinating, unsuccessful, stumbling, fast, loving and pretty unpredictable.
