“Before this”
by Lee Brummer and the cast of ilYoung 2022

This piece is inspired by the different stories of individuals; stories of loss, triumph, love, courage, life events and incidents which, when combined, all form the mosaic of both our personal lives and of our society as a whole.

“Sometimes, not always”
by Israel Aloni and the cast of ilYoung 2022

The work reflects on the notion of borders as such. It aspires to expand what is considered as part of a huWOman* being and sequentially, impact the way in which we interact with the world. The notion of borders, both physical and metaphysical, is inscribed in most perceptions of the world. To truly evolve in time, we might be required to experiment with physical and conceptual plasticity.
*HuWOman is a textual adaptation Aloni invented to place the woman within the reference to the human being and subvert the patriarchal power dynamics that still persist in our societies.


ilYoung is ilDance’s project-based junior dance company for artists between the ages of 18-27.
Lee Brummer & Israel Aloni established ilYoung in 2012 with the ambition to support excellent young and emerging artists who are at the early stages of their professional careers. The project offers professional experience, mentorship and a nationwide touring opportunity.

ilDance initiated and operates ilYoung with the goal to prepare young and emerging dancers for the ever-changing and progressing professional contemporary dance sector both in Sweden and abroad. The project creates the space and offers tools for young artists to discover more about themselves and their own practice and supports them in finding and using their own artistic voice in a professional context.

Over the years directors Aloni and Brummer have developed particular methods in which they work with young artists, some of which are specific and tailored to the ilYoung experience. These methods include different perspectives and approaches to oneself, body and community as well as physical exploration which is embedded in both choreographers’ practices and works to enhance artists individuality encouraging the young artists to unfold their potential to the fullest.
