Sweden's leading modern dance company, Cullbergbaletten, has announced a collaboration with Jonatan Leandoer Håstad, aka Yung Lean, and performer/choreographer Eleanor Bauer for NEAR, a concept dance concert.

With both artists sharing an interest in poetry and fantasy, a factor of this unique collab, the music for NEAR is created by Yung Lean, in conjunction with ambient music multi-instrumentalist and video artist, Frederik Valentin. Twelve dancers of Cullbergbaletten will partake in the performance, and will co-create a temporary autonomous zone in which they navigate improvisational practices to continually generate spontaneous interpretations of a musically and poetically structured composition.

The concept dance concert, NEAR, will debut at this year's Way Out West Gothenburg in August. For tickets and additional details, head on over to Way Out West's official website now.
