Ami Skanberg Dahlstedt

Studio Buji
artistic director
Gothenburg, Sweden
Ami Skånberg Dahlstedt is a Swedish performer, choreographer, filmmaker and writer. Ami often creates stage work (solo, and collaborative) on the basis of her embodied life story in a particular theme. Her 90 min solo performance A particular act of survival received a performing arts award at Scenkonstgalan in Sweden in 2015. In Dec 2018 her new piece Yamamba-walse for a wounded ancestor will premiere. The slow walk suriashi is essential in Ami's practice, which she has studied since 2000 with her teacher Nishikawa Senrei in Kyoto, Japan. Since 2014, she walks in suriashi in different spaces as part of her halftime PhD studies at Centre for Asian Theatre and Dance at University of London. Ami also explores the various accents her dancing contains, where nihon buyō has been an important source of knowledge the last seventeen years. In March 2015, Ami was appointed coordinator, together with the visual artist Lucy Lyons, for the Nordic Summer University Study Circle 7: Practicing Communities - Transformative societal strategies of artistic research. The study circle is organized through Nordic Summer University, a well-established twice-yearly symposium. Ami is a member of the Peer Review board of Journal of Artistic Research since February 2017.
