During spring of 2020, the world was paralysed by the corona pandemic and theatres all over the world were forced to close. Performances were cancelled and ballet companies worldwide were faced with a dilemma. No more audience and challenges were abundant. What could be done?

At the end of May, choreographer Alexander Ekman was contracted by the Royal Swedish Ballet to develop a corona-adapted piece for the dancers. During the spring, Ekman explored – together with the dancers – a new way to experience ballet and the theatre during the pandemic.
