"Inner sampling"

at Litteraturhuset in Fredrikstad

Inner Sampling

A live research performance on reflections and receptivity  through actions. I am investigating  experience of shift  in sensations, body movement, thoughts and inner images collaborating with sound and objects.  Searching to find more  connections through interdisciplinary play. What was interesting to me was how new information surfaces during  this process.



"In TRANSIT"at Oslo Jazzdans Festival

I Initiated a collaboration with Carl J. Aguilizan to create a feeling of freedom and dialogue between inner and outer spaces. With improvisation and musical deconstruction we try to brake down barriers between physical and mental boundaries. We want to create a multidimensional project that involves sound, image and body.

I am a part of the coming,

A song to… by Mia Habib is the choreography of a mass movement in both senses of the word: the Norwegian choreographer brings 16 professional dancers and up to 30 non-professionals onto the stage, choreographing their naked bodies as pure materiality.
