Krosness & Pekula Collaborations is a collaboration between dancers and choreographers Disa Krosness and Erika Pekula Pettersson. Their work started in 2012 with the production Duolog. Duolog is a duet about the building of a sentence and the sentence of words, constructing the dancers bodies. In this piece they started a collaboration with poet and sound artist Dr Bu. His monologues and overturn of words embodies by the two dancers in space. The piece plays for an audience from 8 years and is often included with a workshop.

Their most recent production Piles of waste, fate and fortune (Öde(s)högar) was funded by the Swedish Art Council. The performance plays with the melancholy of the northern culture where everyday life is sufficient, normal and safe. It deals with how we approach each other; seek comfort and love, how hard it can be. Music made by voices in layers is mixed with recorded poetry and distinct choreography. It’s a dance theatre performance where a lot of mimic and gesture is used to really connect with the audience. The piece plays for an audience from 13 years.

Together they have also created the dance-film Drottninggatan and the site-specific piece Dans på Bauers Brygga. The genre is contemporary dance.
