I be seen
(Performance lab / film )
I wanted to collaborate with the local community.
Social art is an important part of my work. For the last fifteen years I've worked a lot with young people on creating space where they are allowed and able to express themselves in a safe space. My focus is always on them being allowed to listen more to their inner selves rather than immediately doing what they think is expected of them.
I wanted together with young people, living in Skien, where Ibsen was born, to make something around the theme of the Ibsen festival - "designing the self". I wanted to base what we together would make on the young people's voices and thoughts today.
