Nathalie Wahlberg - Cirkopolis vol. 2 /SE
Nathalie Wahlberg (Sweden) is a 27-year-old energetic dancer from Sweden. After her studies at the Royal Swedish Ballet School (specialization in contemporary dance) she decided to move to the UK, joining the Postgraduate Performance Company of the Northern School of Contemporary Dance, VERVE. Working with the company, during the season -08/-09, gave her good insight to the professional world of dance, working in a company, spending time on the road and on stage during the international tour. After her time in the UK Nathalie decided to explore the dance landscape of the continent Europe. Through frequent visits in Brussels and participation in international dance festivals such as ImPulsTanz (Austria), she built a strong network that became an important base for her further development. She fell in love with the physicality and the direct communication in the vocabulary of companies such as Ultima Vez, RootlessRoot and ROSAS which influenced her development as a dancer and performer. Participating in professional workshops with artists from these companies as well as further on assisting the same people within their teaching and artistic research has given her a strong base of technique, knowledge and tools for creation. In 2011 Nathalie got in contact with the contemporary circus field in Sweden. She was inspired by the direct and human language that the circus disciplines communicates and started to add some basic elements of hand balancing, dance acrobatics and juggling in to her daily practice. Nathalie sees circus as an art form of reality because of its constant work of adaptation, dealing with real situations, pushing the artist to stay in the present moment and exploring the physical and mental state of challenging the limits of movement in relation to a “real problem” and real objects. Out of this interest she created her own circus discipline out of a pair of high heel shoes and used them as a tool in order to enter the present moment of a real performance.
