The Seydou Boro Company
Dancer for Mathilde Monnier from 1993 to 2004 he created with Salia Sanou the company Salia ni Seydou in  1995. After 15 years of artistic adventures with Salia Sanou within the company Salia ni Seydou, Seydou Boro set up his own company in 2010. He wanted to use it to develop his choreographic research work while exploring in greater depth a more cross-disciplinary approach to cinematographic and musical creations. He created “Le tango du cheval” in 2010 and brought out his album “Kanou” in the same year, then adapted a traditional story for young audiences in 2013: “Why do hyenas have shorter back lacks than front legs and why do monkeys have bare bottoms?” and made a collective film, “Corpus” with Leslie Gremberg/Les Films Pénélope. He also continued to tour with the pieces “C'est-à-dire” (2004) and “Concert d’un homme décousu” (2009). He has regularly been invited to pass on his teachings and repertoire in workshops and masterclasses.
His artistic work is inspired by links that have been established over a number of years with the CDC la Termitière in Ouagadougou (Burkina Faso) of which he is co-director. He has also embarked on other collaborations in France and abroad which offer him space for research and experimentation. He has worked with the likes of Les récréatrales in Ouagadougou, Tof theatre (puppets, Brussels) and Mark Tompkins (I.D.A) and is planning to adapt a text he wrote in 2002, “L’exil dans l’asile”, with Bakary Sangaré from the Comédie Française.
In 2014 the Seydou Boro Company recreated the 2013 choreographic story “Why do hyenas have shorter back lacks than front legs and why do monkeys have bare bottoms?” on stage with “Surukou” and four musicians from Burkino Faso. In 2015 he will be creating “Le Cri de la Chair”, a piece for six dancers and five musicians

Peter Jasko, Slovakia/Belgium, January 2014
In his residency in Malmö Peter Jasko  will work on two current projects.
The first part will be in collaboration with dance artist Florencia Demestri. The work is a duet called Spring Quartet.  We believe that the choice to treat or not, explicitly, the quartet’s theme (spring) should not be considered a priori in order not to limit the scope of interpretation to figurative or too representative aspects. The aim of this duet is primarily to create a lively interaction between musicians and dancers. The work will focus on the search for original drama arising from scenic acts or different physical qualities, favoring the expression of emotional states rather than in a willingness to stick to a concept requiring the use of the intellect.
The second part is the start of a new collaboration with the Canadian composer Pierre Michaud called The Matrioshka Collective.
At the core of this new collaboration between Peter Jasko and Pierre Michaud lies a 15-year-old friendship and mutual artistic respect. This new collaboration aims at revisiting the past with new eyes in an open creative atmosphere: a sort of artistic gift to each other, in a sense.
But this project also represents the birth of a new collective of creators, which will grow as a garden. A sort of worldwide creative commune of open minded individuals working and inspiring each other from the 4 corners of the world using the internet and ftp servers to redefine the creative process paradigm.  Sometimes these people will meet on stage. Malmö would be the first meeting of the collective.
The idea is quite simple: each new member of the collective is allowed, after a given time, to invite another member, with whom he would like to collaborate. This new member will eventually invite a new member after a given time and so on and so forth. The only rule is to contribute by regularly sharing material on the ftp server, which can be used by other members of the group. All artistic mediums and nationalities are allowed. The material shared can be merely inspirational or be the basis of bigger projects. The number of members of the collective will be eventually fixed once a sufficient number of artistic disciplines are met.
No business plan, no precise goals to achieve, no large expectations. Just pure creativity and joy of sharing in the hopes of seeing beautiful things arise.

Peter Jasko, born in 1982, began dancing at age 3. He studied at the Conservatory of Banska-Bistrica(Slovakia), and P.A.R.T.S. He then danced for Roberto Olivan, Sidi Larbi Cherkaoui, David Zambrano, Giorgio Barberio Corsetti and many others. He is co-founder of the company Les SlovaKs Dance Collective. He teaches worldwide and also choreographed performances and brought his dancer view to multidisciplinary creations in many countries. His body language is extremely expressive and physical, as he draws his influences in hip-hop or traditional dance with a mastery of ground work. Humor and direct contact with the public are essential for this perform
