With the support from the artist run stage and venue Atalante and its residency program for “young choreographers”, Gilda created the solo Scented Letters in the autumn of 2011. In Scented Letters Gilda explores conflicts between intellect and body, embodying voice and text, using sound tracks from movies and music.

B RÖR MIG touch me — the stage performance
Gilda discovered Argentinian Tango in 2003. Fascinated by the intensity of this improvised social dancing, its specific technique, culture and history, Gilda started her research in the meeting point between contemporary dance, Argentine tango and physical theatre. Her research led to a short film and later to a full evening creation that toured in Sweden from 2007 – 2009. “B rör mig” was also performed at the Cambalache Festival in Argentina, Buenos Aires.
“B rör mig” was created with the support of Norrlandsoperan (the Opera in the north of Sweden) in the autumn of 2006.

VEM ÄR STARKAST ?Who is the strongest ?
A dance and theatre piece for young audiences. The piece was created in collaboration with the city of Vänersborgs in the spring of 2014 and has been touring in Sweden since then.
Vem är starkast? is questioning what strength is with a lot of humour and poetry and how you can be strong in different ways. In 2016/17 it was chosen by the Swedish Artscouncil to be a part of a touring program presenting dance and theatre for preschools in the countryside all over Sweden.
