About us

Anna Näsström and Johan Bandholtz form the choreography duo Ongoing Realities (OR), which explore dance and choreography in the context of digital technologies such as Motion Capture, animation, VR, AR, and AI. They create multi-sensory experiences for both stage settings and other locations. Their work has been showcased and awarded at The Stockholm Fringe Festival in both 2022 and 2023. Their works have also been featured at venues including the Kulturhuset Stadtstatern's digital innovation festival, The Art Museum in Skövde during Riksteatern's event Technology and Creation, at The Swedish Pavilion at Tanzmesse and at the magazines Modern Psychology and Forskning och Framsteg's event Hjärndagen. In 2023, they opened the inauguration of the Tempo Documentary Festival with a performance inspired by the festival's focus on digital reflections and the evolution of cameras. The duo has had several national residencies, including with Riksteatern Väst, Rum för dans, Estrad Norr, Northern Sustainable Futures, SITE incubator, and others, and has received support from organizations such as The Swedish Arts Grants Committee, The Swedish Arts Council, and The City of Stockholm. Ongoing Realities collaborates with both national and international experts in various fields, including programming, digital animation, artificial intelligence, sound design, AR, and VR.
