Among the character traits of dybwikdans is the use of live music during which the musicians take part in the scenic expression. dybwikdans creates productions for the traditional venues, but also works exploring public spaces. Site-specific installations make up one of the research areas of the choreographer. The past years dybwikdans has produced much both outdoors and in traditional venues.

The company has performed productions as evening performances in cultural centres and as daytime performances through The Cultural Rucksack. Choreographer Siri Dybwik is concerned with creating new arenas for contemporary dance and in her productions for children she emphasises closeness between performers and audience.

The company dybwikdans is supported by the municipality of Stavanger and the company’s productions are supported by the municipalities of Stavanger and Sandnes plus the county of Rogaland.

Choreographer Siri Dybwik works as an associate professor at The University of Stavanger where the productions of dybwikdans make a foundation for her artistic research work.
