”Having the time of your life”
La Nueva España – Diario Independiente de Asturias” 2010
”Cantus in the memory of the dancing queen”, world premiere of choreographer Giovanni Bucchieri, served to kick off the show. An intelligent reflection on the human relationships in which friendship and love, infidelity or sexual ambiguity mingled with a composition very sober and intimate lighting by Martin Säfström. The music of ”The Passion According to St. Matthew” by Johann Sebastian Bach, but re-interpreted with a greater burden dramatically and manipulated electronic resources, served as the basis for distributing the points of tension and strain acting (incorporating even cuts and abrupt silences.)

5th anniversary with engaging dance euphoria

An evening carried of contagious dance euphoria
Dagens Nyheter 2001
Dance joy at Confidencen. The artists show their skills in very different styles in a generous performance
…At Confidencen the history meet the future in a well-balanced and comfortably un-pretentious program for the well-being of the audience…
Svenska Dagbladet 2000
Excellent ambassadors entertain with quality…
…In showing this the evening stretches from historical dance until 2000. This shows the group’s position as ambassadors for Swedish dance, with roots in historical earth and a future development through new creations made especially for the ensemble…
…The goal, that in a smaller scale try to find forms for meetings between free choreographers and The Royal Swedish Ballet’s dancers, is very good and apparently worth to develop…
The daily Gazette 2000
…The ensemble of a dozen Swedes made its world debut at Jacob’s Pillow in 1997. That week of performances was the most talked about of the dance festival season. That’s because the group is inspired, like giddy young rebels, to present works the Royal would not- small in scale and daring, even if it is a bit risqué in approach…
…Stockholm 59° North truly had taken us into heaven.
Times Union 2000
…But for a few short weeks in the summer, they trip the light as fantastic as Stockholm 59° North, a 13-member troupe that dances quirky and very modern work by contemporary Swedish and international choreographers.
The seasoned ballet dancers bring with them power, clarity and a knife-edged articulation…
The Berkshire Eagle 2000
…Here is all the elevated lithe precision and articulation of the finest ballet lineage, and its archly delineated pantomime….
…To its credit, 59° North has selected works that are more interesting than not, and its treatment of them is so crisp and professional, so obviously affectionate and friendly, that it’s well worth watching…
…It epitomizes the spirit of this fine ensemble: a willingness to please the sophisticated artistic palette. Skol!
The Berkshire Eagle 1997
…These are the kind of dancers you think of when people talk about ”classical ballet” – toes pointed, every muscle stretched to its limit, bodies perfectly balances and centred, making the impossibly difficult look easy. Jacob’s Pillow is a lot closer than Stockholm – see them while you can.
The Boston Globe 1997
…These are spectacularly beautiful young dancers, fully committed to the choreography, possessed of breathtaking technique and expression…
…Repeat is what the Pillow should do with the Swedes. This taste of what the company is like breeds an appetite for more…
Times Union 1997
…The classiest Swedish import since SAAB…
…The dancers all soloists with the Royal Swedish Ballet, appeared to toss aside the traditional restrictions of their form and leap with gusto into movement that originated from the centre of the body rather than the arms and legs. The pirouettes and en Pointe plies that did show up on stage felt like natural outgrowths of the choreography, not technical displays…
New York Times 1997
…The 13 dancers in the group are both forceful and lithe, with impeccable classical training and extraordinarily strong supple feet…
…May the Swedes soon return.
