MDT — the place to be
MDT presents and arranges performances, showings, festivals, talks, and conferences in a never ending stream. Choreography and dance are guiding concepts which are represented in several ways here at MDT, an organisation with one stage and two studios at Skeppsholmen in the middle of Stockholm. MDT has a central position on the international dance field. Our work is widely communicated and one of our goals is that the productions we stand behind should play more and more. We support the artists we represent and produce, and help them build a steady platform to work from.
A text like this cannot fully describe the work that we do. The best way to get a grasp on that is to
– follow our newsletter
– follow our program which is continually updated
– read our annual reports
– read the attempts at describing our goals which Danjel Andersson has written, in the MDT publications below. And listen to this interview that Danspodden Isadora did with Danjel (in Swedish).
To get a picture of MDT’s history (previously Moderna Dansteatern) we recommend you to read this wikipedia page (in Swedish): https://sv.wikipedia.org/wiki/
