About Tove Salmgren
Tove Salmgren lives in Stockholm and work with dance and choreography as a dancer, assistant choreographer, choreographer and dramaturge. Since 2005 Tove has worked as a dancer with Malin Elgán, in projects questioning the notion of dance and choreography, through new forms of production and distribution, for example the film ”Storyboard” (2009), the performance ”The Wood Piece” (2011) and the soundchoreography “Prata lite, så kollar vi” (2012). In Tove’s first soloperformance ”Jazzdance” (2008) she explored her method as a dancer translated into a choreographic practice resulting in a play with the expected, at Norrlandsoperan in Umeå. During a residency at MDT she together with dancer and choreographer Stina Nyberg showed the studio work ”Handshow” (2012), an experiment with representations within the conventions of dance in a theatre space, an experiment that was focusing on the possibility to use the notion of different in a way so it would become the same.
