Rolf de Maré’s Museum of Movement

A museum 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. Apart from the permanent displays, several temporary exhibitions are put on every year. Dance films are always available.




Torsten Jurell
February 5 – May 1 2016

A marionette theatre is on tour. The museum is invaded by a bunch of actors; timeless, androgynous world citizen. In the exhibition, the moonlight emerges all a bit different. Mechanical sculptures, silhouette games, painting, photography, light and sound – a strange, fanciful world to explore.

Torsten Jurell is a multifaceted artist who for 10 years also worked in China. In this vibrant and dynamic contemporary art scene has Jurell created the majority of the exhibition’s sculptures. He exhibits continuously since 1976 in Sweden and abroad. His works are featured in private and public collections across Europe, China and the U.S.A.

In the light of darkness
stars sing
dreams are woven
Who pitched their theatre tent
while we were so soundly asleep?
