The Lilian Karina Foundation
The Lilian Karina Foundation was formed as a research foundation to further the knowledge about the art of dance and how it was influenced by the political landslide of the 20th century – from the Russian revolution, further to Nazism and the influence of Indian, Asian, African and Afro American dance styles on European dance. In an appendix to her will, Lilian Karina formulated the purpose and regulations of the foundation.
During 2015 the Foundation has awarded scholarships to two Swedish researchers in dance. Astrid von Rosen and Kathleen Quinlan have received 10.000 SEK each as a stimulation for further research work.
