Daniella Eriksson is a dancer and choreographer from Sweden. She invites the spectators to a universe similar to the one we inhabit, but where things seem to have new strange colors and textures. Meaning and causality is not what is commonly recognized as such and ordinary objects have peculiar lives of their own. Sudden shifts and strong juxtapositions of expressions and movement characterizes her work, inspired by train platforms and carrots, old trees and fancy jackets. Daniella creates a universe that challenges the audience to question what they are looking at when they think they know what they see.
Daniella completed her artistic education at the University of Dance and Circus (BA program in Dance Performance 2012 - 2015). Her first solo performance ’Ranunculus’ has been awarded twice (Orkesztika Alapítvány - SzólóDuó festival in Budapest and Barnes Crossing 8th International SoloDuo Festival in Cologne) and showed in Sweden, Denmark, Germany, Latvia, Hungary, France and Israel. She is the founder and artistic director of Are You Kid-Ing Dance Festival in Falun, Sweden. She has worked with Rosalind Crisp, Jefta van Dinther, Heidi Vierthaler and Canan Erek and is currently in production with Wilhelm Groener and researching her new solo work supported by the Swedish Arts Grants Committee.
