I am a dancer and a choreographer working solo and in various forms of collaboration within the fields of visual theater, site specific theater and dance. I am approaching the human body as a phenomenon and material, no matter if it is in motion or not, no matter of it is athletic or lazy, old or young. I am motivated by trying to understand the significance of the body in this contemporary world we live in.
My movement language and artistic expression is influenced by my studies in contemporary dance, theatre and choreography but vary widely from project to project. I usually search for a unique scenic language for each production just as I observe how the body is constantly moving in relation to the people, the materials and the surrounding environments in real life. My work is striving to stand in dialogue to that reality rather than forming an isolated dance technique.
Since 2015 I am a core member of the bilingual nomadic theater group Grus Grus Theater. Grus Grus Theater is run by 5 core members with skills in theater, dance, film, puppetry and circus. Our shared ambition is to produce relevant and cross-disciplinary theater works that no-one else would dare to produce.
I have a BA from the modern dance department of the Amsterdam University of the Arts from 2010. I have also studied choreography at The School For New Dance Development in Amsterdam and visual theater with Clipa Theater in Tel Aviv. I am born in Sweden and have lived abroad since 2006, first in Germany, then in the Netherlands and shortly in Israel. Since 2014 I live in Turku, Finland.
