Windwitches – a Living Spirit 

4 September 2018 – 6 January 2019

Eva Lundqvist (b. 1951) has worked with dance most of her life. The power of dance drove her to the dance metropolises London and New York. In London she worked with the London Contemporary Dance Theater that also toured around the world. In New York she studied for choreographers such as Merce Cunningham, Viola Faber and Dan Wagoner.

After these formative years she came into contact with choreographer Birgit Åkesson who became her mentor. In 1977 Eva Lundqvist presented her first work and the group, Vindhäxor (Windwitches), named by choreographer Greta Lindholm, was formed together with the dancers Linda Forsman and Marzenna Kolesnik.

In this exhibition, Windwitches – a living spirit, Eva Lundqvist would like to tell you about this magical journey that 40 years of work with dance has been. Eva has written all the texts to the exhibition and also the poems.

Eva Lundqvist says this about her work: “Movement is elusive, capricious, constantly changing, never still. Movement lives in us always. We follow this fluctuation, use this restless stream, but only as an instrument, never as its master.”
