Rolf de Maré’s Museum of Movement

Permanent exhibition

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.

Free admission




Torsten Jurell
February 5 – May 1 2016. Free admission.

A marionette theatre is on tour. The museum is invaded by a bunch of actors – timeless and androgynous world citizens. Everything seems a little different in the moonlight. Mechanical sculptures, shadow puppetry, paintings, photography, light and sound. It’s a strange and wonderful world to explore.

Torsten Jurell is a multifaceted artist who has made China the base for his artistic endeavours for the past 10 years. He has taken up residence in Jingdezhen, the “porcelain capital” of China, where the vibrant craftmanship of today draws from an illustrious history stretching back over thousands of years. It is in this seething, dynamic hotbed of contemporary artistic expression that Jurell has created the sculptures in the current exhibition.

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