Khamlane Halsackda
Ursäkta oss

What happens when people from all over the world come together to learn the unsystematic, preposition-filled, sh-sound loving Swedish language?

Ursäkta oss is a twisted and humoristic dance performance; a total experience that compels you to confront your own conceptions on identity, belonging and inclusion.

The place is an SFI lesson. And you are the student. The space is a chameleon that shifts between the classroom, theatre stage and dream world. Here we encounter thoughts on language barriers, miscommunication and linguistic constraints. Ursäkta oss is a performance in lesson format, which not only turns the Swedish language upside down, but which also makes you laugh, leaves you astounded and teaches you new things.

Everything is boiled down to an oh-so-simple but yet so hard to achieve desire: that people should get to know one another.


Malmo-based Khamlane Halsackda moved with his family from Laos to the UK at the age of four. During his time in London has collaborated with a number of companies, including the Royal Opera House and the Random Dance company. He has also worked with artists such as Kylie Minogue and Christina Aguilera, and was choreography assistant for the film Harry Potter and the goblet of fire. Today, he choreographs his own pieces, and works at in-discourse and Rörelsen-Koreografer in Skåne.
