Pontus Petterssons (1983, SE) is an artist, choreographer and dancer. His work is carried by a love for dancing with a particular interest in made and found objects that create choreographies in between subject and object, spectator and performer, where hospitality and temporality can be seen as two major choreographic principals, as well as more open fields of study such as poetry and water. Applying choreography into everything he does, his work goes from installations, objects, practices and dancing. Working professional as dancer since his graduation at Skolen for Moderne Dance in Copenhagen (2007) - Pontus embarked on a diverse and spread out career working with world class choreographers such as Ohad Naharin and Deborah hay to name a few, while from very early on also starting to make his own work where his passions for clothes and photography making strong appearances in his work, such as The Fortune Teller or later work such as Writing Wounds to Heal. As “choreography of its own” the work is always a mix of practices and genres, where text, objects, sculptures and choreographic instructions is always a part of the whole peice, being that as only installation work or one-to-one performances or larger scale choreographies on stage. Pontus holds two masters, one in choreography (DOCH), and one in visual arts (Konstfack) He is the initiator and main curator of the dance and performance festival My Wild Flag together with Karina Sarkissova.
