Köttinspektionen dance


Köttinspektionen Dans is led by a wish to facilitate processes and relations that contribute to artistic development and spontaneity. There is a lack of platforms and support for artistic research and processes without a finished/fixated product as an outcome. We want Köttinspektionen, as a space, to allow artistic practices to meet, develop and get challenged and therefore mainly invite artists with a process based practice, and works that can develop on site.


Köttinspektionen offers hearing loop, contact us before your visit. The premises are largely accessible for wheelchair and permobile use, as they are located on the ground floor. Unfortunately the space is lacking accessible toilets. We are working on getting permission to build one.

All of the programme is free of charge. Welcome!

Köttinspektionen Dans is a performance venue and place for experimental dance and choreography in Uppsala, led by choreographers Tove Salmgren and Kajsa Wadhia. Köttinspektionen is an artist-run cultural centre located near the centre of Uppsala, and co-directed with the art collective HAKA and the theatre group Uppsalas fria teater.

The whole program see kottinspektionen.org

As a dancer she has been active in the scene of experimental dance and choreography since 2002, and since 2015 she has an MA in choreography from SKH.  As a choreographer she’s interested in activating spaces which resist and trouble hegemonic understandings of the social, self, relation, knowledge and art, through performative experiments. Her solo and group works often carries a curatorial approach, as in “We happen things” (with Moa Franzén and Manon Santkin), in collaborations with “The Blob” (with Anna Efraimsson), and when co directing Köttinspektionen Dans, together with the artist Kajsa Wadhia – a platform and venue for experimental dance and performance in Uppsala, Sweden. Since 2018 she forms a performance trio together with Moa Franzén and Kajsa Wadhia exploring the voice as physical materiality and choreographic tool, currently working on a production through residencies at MDT and Weld, Stockholm, with upcoming performances at Art Lab Gnesta and Weld.
