MYSK offers a guest stage for dancers and performance artists. Experimental stage for performing arts and performance.
ExPro Stage - residency and stage presentation
MYSK, in collaboration with World Dance Company & Andra Våningen at Oceanen offers a new guest performance stage in a small and intimate format for Gothenburg dancers and performance artists.
In 2018, a pilot study was carried out to investigate the need to provide Gothenburg with a new guest performance stage in a small and intimate format. ExPro Stage is a development of the project and a platform that makes it possible to examine the artistic work by inviting the audience to its scenic process of experiments, labs, conversations, work in progress and the artist's needs in the development phase.
ExPro also includes a collaboration with Danscentrum Väst's residency activities. The residency means that during the fall of 2020, the artist commits to meeting the ExPro stage's audience, either in the form of a "work in progress" show or as a finished performance.

ExPro Stage wants to highlight performing artists who are in an ongoing stage of experimentation, lab, 'work in progress' or the artist's needs in the development phase.
Are you in an artistic process and want to share a work in progress or are you exploring a theme, a movement language or interdisciplinary collaborations? Then ExPro Stage is a platform for you that is based on presenting a process in conversation with an audience.
ExPro Stage presentations
ExPro Stage presents Gentle Pain
We peer out through spaces and gaps, looking for lightness. Between parallel times we twitch and tremble - gently, delicately, yet full of foreboding. Gentle Pain uses movement, sound and image - all three together, in no hierarchical order. Dance on a knife edge, finding lightness together in discomfort; a performative creation in time and space.
Concept and participants in the performance: Kelsey Cotton, Katarzyna Paluch, Urška Medved
A cross-genre performance, moving between Odissi, Indian classical dance and contemporary music.
Shakti is related to energy, the creative force, whose source is the vital life force within us. With a deep heritage in Indian Odissi, it explores performative, innovative and meditative aspects of life.
In a scale of forms from Odissi, the limits of innovative expression are pushed in the encounter with the everyday life of our time, from anxiety to humor. The performance explores the relationship between classical forms and refined movements that describe the mundane, random patterns of everyday life. Shakti is synonymous with creation, in the time span between tradition and innovation, a new form of dance expression is created with newly written music in an integrated performative work.
