"shifting Modes"My online performance
I am a part of Witch Wich,
Talking GENDERS 2021 collaborates with Åbne Scene in the form of an artistic laboratory facilitated by the artists and sisters Tone and Linn Haldrup Lorenzen. They usually work independently in their artistic practices, but with the support from Talking GENDERS 2021 they join forces. Which Witch is the outcome of their collaborative research, together with a group of fellow artists:
Sepideh Khodarahmi, Karoline Holland, Monia Matilda Penttinen, Hanna Filomen Mjåvatn and Luna Sound Artist
Throughout July the group will work on their artistic experiments and the work will be shared during The Genderhouse Festival 8-9 October 2021.
In a labyrinth without walls you are invited into an investigation of feministic clowning. This performative exploration asks animating and satirising questions of prejudice and privilege. Through the techniques of ASMR in a 360 live performative space, voices that crawl into your brain and tickle your neck from within. Exploring ASMR and the queerness of the clown, the artists experiment with humour as a healing weapon, when really there is nothing to laugh about.
The project is supported by The Danish Art Council, Nordic Culture Point and Nordic Mobility Fond.

"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.

Experimental sharing of my artistic practice involving sound sampling, composition. A interactive performance, video, sound and boy
at Litteraturhuset in Fredrikstad
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.
