NextDoor Project creates documentary choreographic art.

We create movement. Inside people. Between people. We create spaces for citizenship, connecting and composing new perspetives.
We build our artistic work on nomadic and rhizomatic strategies, connecting with the citizens through relational formats, prioritizing the artistic investigation and placing the potential of relation at the centre of the artwork. 

Since 2012 NextDoor Project has developed new formats for citizen involvement, creating room for equal and mutual meetings between citizens, artists and artwork.
We move through local, national, nordic and global landscapes, meeting people where they are;
asylumcentres, nursing homes, theatres, flodded basements, streets, schools, daycare institutions, parks, museums, galleries, townhalls, libraries and community houses.

NextDoor Projects artistic profile is created by choreographer, dancer and director Ingrid Tranum Velásquez.

Currently we work on;

Unfinished Tales
- a 3 year artistic project investigating the bodily, cultural an emotional heritage of nordic colonialism in collaboration between artists and youth from Kallaalit Nunaat (Greenland), Førøyar (Faroe Islands), Ísland (Iceland), Norge (Norway), Sverige/Sapmi (Sweden/Sapmi), Finland/Sapmi, Ghana, Ay Ay (St Croix) and Danmark (Denmark). Based on embodiment, choreography, film and performance, we travel through the vulnerable landscapes of the colonial body, investigating the footsteps of nordic colonialism. Through artistic strategies the project open up for dialogue, relation and community between youth from the 9 countries, bringing awareness of the narratives inherited in the social choreographies and the body as an archive for individual and collective memory.

VI ER NORDEN - et dekoloniserende ritual af, med og for Nordens befolkning
- VI ER NORDEN (We are the Nordics) is a decomposition of the inherited choreographies of colonialism. An invitation to let yourself be heard. A test of our willingness to chance.
The work travel through different colonial and postcolonial terrains of the Nordic countries, making itself available as a performative situation in the local debate about decolonization.

Happy End has been documented by swedish filmmaker Engeli Broberg and danish photographer Per Morten Abrahamsen.
