About us

Memory Wax is a dance company that produces dance art with a strong visual expression for children, young people and adults. Our ambition is to draw attention to dance as an art form and promote its role in society.

In our artistry, we examine the complexity of our feelings and the different relationships between people. Over the years, we have received a lot of attention for our distinctiveness and our unique, evocative expression. Our movement language is stripped down, characterized by humanism and curiosity to investigate and portray existential and philosophical questions through dance. With an undertone of humor and with love for the simple, we want to create magic out of the everyday.

We constantly strive to develop opportunities to meet the audience and broaden interest in modern dance. Our goal is to bring dance closer to people and let more people experience the magic, creativity and possibilities that free expression creates.

To reach a broad audience, we create meetings via workshops, outdoor festivals and international cultural exchanges.

The dance company Memory Wax is based in Malmö and was founded in 2004 by Miguel Azcue and Johanna Jonasson. 

Memory Wax is supported yearly by the Swedish Arts Council, Region Skåne and the City of Malmö.
