About us

Memory Wax is a dance and theatre company with a strong visual expression and a naked theatrical movement language.

Memory Wax was founded 2004 by Miguel Azcue and Johanna Jonasson and has its base in Malmö, Sweden. Through simplicity we experience and develop movement and ideas in a new perspective.

Memory Wax repertoire contains performances for children, youth and adults. The pieces have been presented nationally and internationally in Sweden, Denmark, Great Britain, Russia, Czech Republic, Spain, Peru, Ecuador and Cuba. Memory Wax also focus on finding new and open platforms for meetings between the audience and dance. This meeting reflects in the company’s own creations and arranging of site specific events in collaboration with artists, networks and cultural exchanges.

Memory Wax is supported yearly by Malmö Culture Committee, Region Skånes kulturnämnd (Kultur Skåne) and the Swedish Arts Council.
