The video project Longing to fly, Longing to fall had its premiere at Stockholm Furniture Fair.

It is a unique collaboration of art, dance, music and furniture design. 

Swedish architect and musician Erika Janunger created a buzz in 2007 with her art and music video Weightless, where the dancers performed in a room twisted 90 degrees. The effect was a mind-boggling illusion of weightlessness, and the attention was wide enough for the video to be displayed on Times Square in New York During 2013, Janunger has been working on her new project, which further explores similar effects.


– In Longing to fly, Longing to fall we have continued to experiment with the bodily movements in relation to space and gravity, but in new ways, says Erika Janunger. The concept we have come up with also works very well live, which we realized during the shooting. So apart from showing the film at festivals and exhibitions, we are also planning on turning it into a live performance.

15Unique furniture design

The unique blending of art forms stands out, and the addition of furniture from design duo Färg & Blanche closes the creative circle. The furniture is created specifically for Longing to fly, Longing to fall with designs and materials that could withstand the tough conditions on set. The outdoor sequences for instance were shot in a gravel pit and at a wood chip factory.



– Everything in this project is created separately but still blends perfectly together, says Erika Janunger. It’s not just a dance film. We have inspired each other, but the choreography, music and design can also stand on their own. They are separate parts that become stronger together.

01-1The project shows the benefits of collaboration, and choreographer Oskar Frisk hopes to see more interesting ways of spreading dance as an art form.

– Blending art forms in an unexpected way like this is very interesting, he says. It’s like a cultural cross-fertilization where a collaboration with architects, musicians and designers can bring forth new ways of exploring bodily expressions.


The video was released on February 5 together with FÄRG & BLANCHE design exhibition “WOOD TAILORING”
