Dear Visitors and Customers,

Choreographer, set- and costume designer
The Swedish Johan Inger completed his dance training at the Royal Swedish Ballet School and at the National Ballet School in Canada. From 1985 to 1990 he danced with the Royal Swedish Ballet in Stockholm. In 1990 he joined Nederlands Dans Theater I until 2002. When Inger tried his hand at Nederlands Dans Theater’s annual Choreography Workshops (entitled Switch), Jiří Kylián noticed his talent for choreography. After four workshop pieces, Inger was allowed in 1995 to make his first choreography for Nederlands Dans Theater II. The resulting Mellantid marked his official debut as a choreographer. Since then, Inger has made various works for Nederlands Dans Theater. He left Nederlands Dans Theater to take on the artistic leadership of Cullberg Ballet in Stockholm in 2003, making various choreographies for this company. From the summer of 2008 Inger ended his artistic directorship so as to devote himself entirely to choreography. Since then his works have been commissioned by numerous ballet companies around the world and he has created new works for Basel Ballet, Royal Swedish Ballet, Compañía Nacional de Danza Madrid but also regularly for Nederlands Dans Theater with whom he holds the position of Associate Choreographer.
