About two key pioneers of Swedish dance in the 1900s: Birgit Åkesson and Birgit Cullberg.

She was co-designed the European avant-garde modern dance language, and created in the 1950s and 1960s, legendary works for the Stockholm Opera together with others including composer Karl-Birger Blomdahl and Erik Lindegren as librettist.
