About This Artist

Stina Nyberg is a choreographer and dancer from Sweden who for many years have been trying to blur the divides between science, art and belief. She has, amongst other things, choreographed the Shaking the Habitual tour with The Knife, created works for the Cullberg ballet as well as a string of independent works in Europe. She is currently spending time in New York to continue her investigations through dance.

 

About this Project

In Thunderstruck, Stina Nyberg returns to a time when art and science harnessed natural energy for crafting magical devices. In a wonderful act of science and hubris, mixing intimate storytelling with electronic drones from the deep and a singing Tesla coil, she welcomes us to the twilight zone between showmanship and science.
