Sweden’s largest independent dance institution Skånes Dansteater and the acclaimed Swedish band Gaby and the Guns, accompanied by director Olof Werngren and photographer Martin Lang stand behind the short film Bränner Staden. With a common belief in the power of dance and music to express the strongest emotions we want to connect a theatrical expression to everyday situations. Out came eight beautiful minutes with eight dancers, four band members and a whole bunch of Malmö settings, known and unknown.

Skånes Dansteater and Gaby & the Guns Present: BRÄNNER STADEN
Bränner Staden is about shaking life into things that has become fixed in patterns. About a feeling of being trapped in a ”place” that feels smaller every day. It is calling on the city to give something back, to challenge and ”be my drug” in the sentence of overwhelming us with its full potential and persuade us to stay when we threaten to leave or even burn it to the ground.
