Kajsa Sandström is a dancer and choreographer from Sweden. She has worked with Weld Company (SE) 2013, Cie Kubilai Khan Investigations (FR) 2008-2010 and Mette Ingvartsen (DK) 2003-2007. Since 2006 Kajsa develops her own projects initiated by artistic interests and questions, often in collaboration with other artists.

She is interested in how choreography can frame and articulate ways of looking at the experience of movement, perception and bodily presence within various spaces and media. Recently presented work: I need a witness to perform (2008) In the Mirror- A solo choreography in the footsteps of Maya Deren (2009) and These Images Are Written On my Body (2013). Kajsa was a student at PARTS in Belgium (2000-2004). She currently studies Video at The Royal Institute of Art in Stockholm (2013-2014).
