Community of Umeå



Who’s in 

Members came from networks for people looking for new friends, but also seniors interested in culture, as well as young people from the LGBTQ+ community. Also anyone with an interest in identity issues and dance has been involved.

The production

Vingel (title in English Wobble) – In a confidential collaboration with choreographer Sindri Runudde and composer Marta Forsberg, Umeborn explored power and creativity in moments of imbalance.

Vingel reminded us to listen with curiosity, inwardly and outwardly, and to take advantage of the charged moment, here and now.
