Former NDT1 dancer Johan Inger (Stockholm, 1967) was an associate choreographer at NDT from 2009 until the 2014/15 season. In 1995 he made his first choreography for NDT2. The resulting Mellantid marked his official debut as a choreographer and was immediately a resounding success. In the 2013/14 season, Inger created the new work B.R.I.S.A for NDT2. The following year I New Then was shown again during the NDT2 Symphysis programme. His latest creation for NDT2, One on One, premiered in October 2015 during the NDT2 Shearing the Wolves programme.
Inger completed his dance training at the Royal Swedish Ballet School and at the National Ballet School in Canada. From 1985 to 1990 he danced with the Royal Swedish Ballet in Stockholm. Fascinated by the works of Kylián, Inger joined NDT1 in 1990 where he was a high profile dancer until 2002. Soon his talent for choreography was noticed. As an associate choreographer Inger has made various works for NDT1 and 2 such as Dissolve in this (2009), Tone Bone Kone (2010), I New Then and Sunset Logic (2012).
From 2003 to 2008 Inger was artistic director of the Cullberg Ballet for which he made various choreographies. Inger's work is included in the repertoire of many leading dance companies all over the world. Recently he created the successful Rain Dogs, based on music by Tom Waits, for the Basel Ballett in Switzerland.
