Alma Söderberg

Alma Söderberg makes choreographies that include music, sound, rhythm and singing in relation to movement and dance. In her solo work that resulted in the piece Cosas and will be followed by TRAVAIL, a practice of collecting fragments of image, text or anything else that might catch ones attention while reading the newspaper is the foundation of a sound and movement collage. In the duet A Talk together with Jolika Sudermann the focus lays on the bodily aspects of language, analyzing intonation, rhythms and gestures of the spoken language. Together with the performance band John the Houseband (Anja Muller, Dennis Deter, Roger Sala Reyner, Hendrik Willekens ) Alma Söderberg takes her desire to make music the furthest and tries to sing all music styles while playing all instruments. She grew up in Sweden, spent a few years dancing flamenco in Spain and graduated from SNDO in 2011. Her work has won the prizes Its choreography award (Amsterdam), ACT festival prize (Bilbao) and 100 grad Berlin audience prize and has been shown in among others: Impulstanz (Wienna), Springdance EIM (Utrecht), Tanz in Bern, MDT (Stockholm) and Something Raw (Amsterdam).
