Alexander Ekman is a free lancing director / choreographer.

Alexander Ekman is known for his fast paced timing and witty humor and clever transitions. He aims to create work which the majority can connect to, finding subjects that we can all relate to.
Since 2006 he has devoted his time creating pieces which both entertain and question the observer. He aims to transform the atmosphere in the auditorium and to always surprise the audience.

”The most important question I always ask myself before I begin creating a new work is, Why do we need this piece?”
