Truths That Never Were by artist duo Broas & Nyberg deals with the concept of a living subject and its ontological, virtual and fleeting truths. The work manifests itself in space through the dialogue between animated video and multidimensional movement. The work captures the viewer in a surrealistic landscape moving on the border between the unreal and the real.

The working group consists of dance artist Jenna Broas, artist Fabian Nyberg and composer Martin Granö.

About Us

We are a Helsinki based artist duo with backgrounds in dance (Jenna Broas) and spatial design/visual art (Fabian Nyberg). Our work crosses the genres of dance, installation and visual arts. Through our work, we work with concepts that focuses on the humanity and its future. We want to bring forth the phenomena of modern society and create contemporary art on stage that does not have a gloomy or desolate outlook on the world, but which awakens the mindset of the limitations of the future. As a part of our artistic practice, we invite sound artists to collaborate with us when working on a project.

We work with choreography and the body; filmed and animated video; programming tools; sensors; low-voltage electronics. Our goal is to find new ways to extend choreographic thinking to virtual and technology-driven work.

Our work has a strong presence in the relationship between organic and inorganic, the dialogue between technology and human as well as the exploration of a virtuosic movement. We feel that with the appearance of artificial intelligence and technology art, humanity, creativity and the creative thinking of the body are gaining prominence in society, and we want to bring these elements together.

  • Because of truths we have a hard time #2 (2019)
  • 2019 // Asbestos Art Space, Helsinki

    Because of truths we have a hard time #2 is a journey into identity, the subject and the self. The theme of the work has raised from the experience of how one’s identity, agency and the subject dissolves, stretches and drowns – in trends, in truths served through different channels and in decision anxiety. The work raises questions about the limits and limitlessness of the subject’s agency and existence in a technologically built terrain.

  • Because of truths we have a hard time #1 (2019)
  • 2019 // Ehkä-tuotanto, Kutomo (Turku)

    Because of truths we have a hard time places itself somewhere between the genres of contemporary dance and installation art. It is the first co-work by the artist duo Jenna Broas and Fabian Nyberg. In the work, the mind of the performer, the mind of the audience, and the mind of a machine form a synthesis, creating a stage reality that raises questions about the limits or the limitlessness of the subject’s agency and existence.

    Concept, choreography and design: Broas&Nyberg

    Production: Ehkä-production, Broas&Nyberg

    Residency: Ehkä-production / Kutomo (Turku)
