Ludvig Daae is a Norwegian dancer and choreographer based in Stockholm. He moved to Sweden at the age of 16 to attend the Royal Swedish Ballet School in Stockholm. After one year at the classical curriculum, he found that contemporary dance was the right path for him, and so after graduating from the ballet school, he moved to Brussels to learn more at another school – P.A.R.T.S. After completing the training cycle at P.A.R.T.S. in 2008, Ludvig has worked with Deborah Hay (USA), Company Thor (BE), Mårten Spångberg (SE) among others, when not creating his own work.
When creating his own work, Ludvig always has an interest in entertainment and popular culture. He feels that dance art can benefit from having a theoretical platform to rest on and develop from, without the performance being weighted by theoretical language. Ludvig’s own works have been presented at Oslo Opera House (NO), MDT (SE), Vooruit (BE), Dansens Hus (NO), Mousonturm (DE), The Place (GB), Kampnagel (DE), Dansens Hus (SE), Moderna Museet (SE), Zodiak (FI), Rencontres chorégraphiques Internationales de Seine-Saint-Denis (FR), GUIdance (PT), Gessnerallee (CH), Sophiensæle (DE) among others.
Ludvig is currently touring with his own piece HYPERFRUIT, which is a collaboration between Ludvig and film maker Joanna Nordahl, as well as his solo MM, and La Substance, but in english by Swedish choreographer Mårten Spångberg.
