Karin Hedin (SE)

Karin is trained at the Royal Swedish Ballet School in Stockholm and has since 2001 worked mainly with some of Sweden's main dance companies as well as a freelance dancer in Sweden and abroad. Her professional experience comes from very different styles and dancing techniques. They include classical ballet (with pointwork), release technique, contact improvisation, street dance and Forsythe improvisation. She has worked with choreographers like Helena Franzén, Fredrik Rydman, Hofesh Shechter, Susanna Leinonen, Ivo Cramér, Mireille Leblanc, Jorma Uotinen and Ohad Naharin.

Coming from a family of musicians, music has always been important to her. Music can often give the very reason to move, and not only being there just for creating an atmosphere. Choreosound 09 interested her because it would be a great opportunity to share her experiences dancing to varying types of music, to listen to how others perceive the relationship between music and dance, and putting these thoughts into practice. Karin is looking forward to a week full of discussions and investigations, and it will be exciting to meet all the people involved.
