TO MAKE THIS UP is a gripping duet, created for the dancers Katarina Eriksson and Elizaveta Penkova set to music by Stefan Johansson. The choreography carries the clear signature of Helena Franzén, with its detailed and precise movement language and great musicality. The audience is placed along all four sides of the stage.

”They come so close that you can feel the wind from the circulating pendulum movement. A moment ago the bodies appeared earthbound, tilting towards the ground, now they are the invisible force of air incarnate. Katarina Eriksson and Elizaveta Penkova deserve to be studied up close in the intimate, explosively lit space that Markus Grankvist has created for the choreographer Helena Franzén’s new duet To make this up… those who enjoy movement poetry, with a charge that carries along your nerves, should take the subway to Kärrtorp” SvD

Helena Franzén has been a part of the top tier of Swedish contemporary choreographers for many years now, with an extensive track record as both dancer and choreographer. She has created close to 70 pieces and toured in Scandinavia, the US, South America and the Baltic region. She regularly teaches in Scandinavia and Europe. In 2011 Franzén was awarded the Swedish Theatre Critics Association’s Dance Award.
