After studies for Anna Halprin at the Tamalpa Institute in San Francisco, USA and the program of choreography at the University of Dance in Stockholm 95-98 has created performances and movies with great success for both adult and children audience. Heilborns’ unique way of combining text, motion, video and images, always spiced with humor and a cool irony, has given her an indisputable position as one of Sweden’s most interesting performance and film artists.

The films are created together with filmmaker Mårten Nilsson and often with the same dancers as in the stagepieces.
“The Lodge” (nominated for Best Screen Choreography at Dance Screen Brighton 2005 and nominated for the Swedish Guldbagge Award for best short film in Sweden 2005) and “Rewind” (nominated for best short film at the Guldbagge Awards in Sweden, 2003). ”What you do”, created together with Mårten Nilsson and Kim Hiorthøy, was awarded the Guldbagge Award for best short film in 2007. And the latest film “This is Alaska”, originally created for the stagepiece “Alaska” is now touring shortfilmfestivals around the world.
