Malin Hellkvist Sellén
Malin Hellkvist Sellén is one of Sweden’s most intriguing choreographers, with 
pieces and projects for both adults and children on her resume. Often referring to 
her work as physical reflections on a specific theme or topic, she alternates between 
solo performances and larger group pieces. Her choreography is as clearly political 
and philosophical as sensuous, physical and emotional. Hellkvist Sellén examines 
choreography as a corporeal and linguistic practice. Pink promises is a solo for Marianne 
Kjaserund, deriving from examinations of certain modes of social dancing and body 
politics. In 2010 Hellkvist opened Within reasonable limits, a piece that emanated from 
an open public call for non-professional and professional dancers. In November 2012 she 
presented a new projectOngoing, with long-time collaborator Minna Elif Wendin.
All productions are available for touring on request.

Memory Wax
Memory Wax is a dance and theatre company with a strong visual expression and 
a naked theatrical movement language. Memory Wax was founded 2004 by Miguel 
Azcue and Johanna Jonasson and has its base in Malmö, Sweden. Through simplicity 
we experience and develop movement and ideas in a new perspective. Memory Wax’s 
repertoire contains performances for children, youth and adults. 
The piece Still Shivering twists and turns impertinent questions about our person. Still 
Shivering is an absurd observation in a maze of emotions. A spectrum of human emotions 
is reproduced and expressed through extreme or subtle changes in body and appearance. 
The individual’s various personalities will be exposed between mask and reality and 
our projections and prejudices will be challenged. When will the grotesque become 
beautiful? Is the sad ever laughable? What do we see and perceive in a man?
