Choreography is a magazine initiated and edited by the Oslo-based choreographers Solveig Styve Holte, Ann-Christin Berg Kongsness and writer Runa Borch Skolseg. The magazine consists of texts written by Nordic artists within the field of dance and choreography. Each text is build around a specific issue requested by the editors, there are independent texts as well as conversations and interviews. All texts exist in both Scandinavian and English versions.
