Children and youth culture

Skellefteå municipality works to ensure that children and young people have access to a rich, qualitative and accessible cultural offering both at school and in their free time. They should have the opportunity to take part in as many different cultural expressions as possible to be able to choose what they want to do in their spare time.

During the spring and fall, we offer a variety of dance, music and theater performances for younger audiences. The performances are aimed at different age groups, from babies to primary school children.

Dotty goes to bed (not)

Halo Dance Art
It's time to sleep. Dotty runs into trouble. How do you actually put on pajamas? And all the pets that need to be put to sleep... And why should you even sleep when you're not tired? Better to occupy yourself with finger dancing to galloping music... With her gallant blouses and sizzling glasses, Dotty is here again to do great things. On her loop machine, she creates soundscapes out of everyday sounds and most of what she does becomes a silly dance.

Everyone gets to go with

The Boulevard Theater
A little girl drives her blue truck. She takes many passengers with her; a Santa, a brooding pig, a boy who has fallen, a frozen dog and a sad teddy bear. Together they go to the girl's house and have a lemonade party. The show "Alla får åka med" is based on Anna-Clara Tidholm's picture book for the youngest children. A performance about empathy, community and diversity and the importance of simple, everyday interaction. Being different is good!

The Weave

The Weave is a performing arts work based on and inspired by weaving as a craft, work and place in society. It is a meeting between the movement-based performing arts and weaving textile art. Through the astonishing possibilities of the circus and the abstraction of dance we move under, over, through and together with the loom and its fabric. The performance is inspired by the children's thoughts about the soft material and the experience of embodying the different movements that the loom and the weaving weave together. What place does softness have in our society today?
