Petricore Movement is an artistic platform for the works of Anna Holmström. Founded in 2015 with it’s base between Stockholm and Berlin.
Through dancetheatre, music-videos, customized performances and dancefilms she creates moments where power meets grace.

“The word Petrichor means that pleasant scent that frequently accompanies the first rain after a long period of warm, dry weather.
Imagine yourself walking outside after a heavy rain and thunderstorm, filling your lungs with fresh air. 

 This sensation, together with a strong connection to nature  is my driving force as an artist”.
                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                        – Anna Holmström
