Räserbyrån is a dance collective established in 1997. It is based in Stockholm, Sweden. It evolved from a vision of a different way of creating movement based performances. The democratic process and the need to question accepted norms have been guiding stars for us.
The founders and members since the start are Katarina Eriksson, Håkan Mayer and Per Sacklén, three Swedish dancers/choreographers. Räserbyrån started out creating works at Fylkingen in Stockholm. Fylkingen is an organisation and venue for experimental music, dance and art. At Fylkingen they also arranged ”Tärrier- evenings”; where dance, music, film and installations could interact in different improvised constellations; a meeting place for different art disciplines. When not working with Räserbyrån; Katarina, Håkan and Per are active on the Swedish freelance scene as dancers, teachers and choreographers.
Räserbyrån mainly performs in Sweden, but have also made guest appearances in Finland, Portugal, Russia, Croatia, and Norway.
In 2008 they choreographed their first performance for children. Since then three more shows for young audiences have been created. “Communication” and “participation” are their key words when setting up the conditions for works for children. Improvisation and relating to the unforeseen is used as tools; when meeting the audience the performances come to life.
Räserbyrån is active in a network exploring community dance and its possibilities to be an active part in society.
Work we have done touching upon the field of community dance is ”Silent walk” and ”Berga danskompani” at a home for elderly people, doing movement work based on improvisation.
