Formally my work is based in text moving freely between genres – poetic rather than dramatic. I am exploring distance to the audience, looking for unconventional and personal ways of communicating. My works has mostly been created for site-specific places (crypts, church spaces, studios, cellars), even though the last full length production was performed in a concert/theatre space (Parkteatret Scene/Oslo), it was constructed into the architecture of the space.
The worlds touched in the poetic and personal voices talks about death, distance, objects, love, and more abstract and surreal universes, as an awareness moving between realities and dreams. Improvisation and stream of consciousness are tools in a structured dramaturgy with small points of unpredictable open spots. A poetic dramaturgical position.
I research distant, hidden and close connectedness and relations between known and unknown; subtle communications between layers of mind and body in society.
I collaborate with other artists from most areas such as music, sound, sculpture, dance etc. I have a background in dance and academic studies (social anthropology, theatre theory). The last 6-7 years moving into digital video and sound, with the aim of blending my knowledge and background into a chaotic/confusing format regarding genres and tools. Live performance installation describes the nature of my art and liberates known categories. Although the liveness can be ruled out, I still feel very connected to the hands-on presentation of any work of art, in any way possible.
To blend analogue and digital, live and pre-edited video/sound and let the letters form words running between screen, floor, mouth, microphones, through bodies into the sensations of an audience voicing an opinion of the subject matter or just some visiting thought there, than and now...
