Museum of Movement


Welcome to Dansmuseet

Dansmuseet – Museum of Movement is dedicated to world dance, theatre, art and photography from across the globe. The unique collection is based on the life of Rolf de Maré (1888-1964) and his extensive travels. Temporary exhibitions are put on every year. The museum also has a shop with a large selection of dance DVD’s, books and gifts.

The Museum is located on Drottninggatan 17 in Stockholm, near Sergels Torg. Find us

Upcoming exhibition


“…And so it was Night!” by Torsten Jurell

February 5 – May 1 2016

An I for an I

by Lee Brummer

An I for an I is a multidisciplinary performance which explores the subjective self. It questions what makes us who we are, and what makes us individual. The human physical being continuously changes; An I for an I reflects on the correspondence between the ever changing body and what it is which is constant within us. What is this grid or frame of “self” on which we hang?
