Just like their adult predecessors, the children alternate between various shapes, bodies and gestures taken from nature documentaries, feature films and something in the style of folk dance. “Barnformen” is thus an extension of previous ideas about the redistribution of movements, our freedom of movement, change of contexts and the uncovering of movement’s meanings. At the same time, the situation can be equated to one when children try on adults’ shoes, unconcerned about what fits and doesn’t fit, they place themselves in relation to the world.

About Malin Elgán
Malin Elgán is a choreographer and artist, based in Stockholm and internationally active. Elgán takes an interest in art beyond the genre-specific and operates through an expanded choreographic practice – through various expressions, formats and media. She does not let dance be limited to certain movements and places. Rather she takes dance out of its usual contexts to enable new meanings. Her work has been performed on stages such as MDT, Dansens Hus and Kulturhuset in Stockholm. Her work has also been shown in artistic contexts, in places such as at Moderna Museet, Nationalmuseum and Bonniers Konsthall in Stockholm as well as at Göteborgs konsthall, Nasjonalmuseet and Kunstnernes Hus in Oslo, Poppositions in Brussels, Ausland in Berlin and at the Museum of Contemporary Art in Zagreb. Most recently the work “Läst till hälften” was performed in collaboration with MDT, in the Picasso Park, Moderna Museet Stockholm in June 2022.
