*Exercises for revolutionaries is a series of hello!earth works, collectively exploring the sensing body as an activist. IN IT TOGETHER is an investigation into the complex equation of distance and empathy, and the influence between the two.
The events are simultaneously broadcasted live via a local radio station, giving everyone within a radius of 8 km. the opportunity to listen in -and to join the experience from their own livingroom.
“TUESDAY NIGHT SLEEPING CLUB” is the new titel of the reworked version of "The Night"
The event offers an extraordinary experience, reclaiming the night as a collective magic and transformative space, dedicated to re-doing society and to explore the power of collective sleeping and dreaming.
An overnight experience for 30 people.
“Dance your neighbour” explores assembly, bodily emapthy, meeting and the collective fabric. It builds on activities with neighbourhoods and movement workshops. About 160 local people from different walks of life engage in workshops for co-writing choreography based on daily life experience and moments that matter to us.
The project opens in the small village of Skjød in Farverskov Kommune, just 40 km from Århus and is as part of Aarhus 2017 - European Capital of Culture
At Sismograph Festival/ Olot/ Catalunya/ Spain. May 2016
A social event, a sensory nature experience, an audio walk, a joined laboratory, an excursion. A party.
Equipped with radio and headphones the audience embarks on a journey into the natural environment. A sensory and poetic exploration of our possibilities to organise ourselves as a collective and as a society. In nature, with nature, as nature.
RE-STREET are a series of exact replicas of the street signs of a place, blurring the line of daily life reality and art. These new signs are designed to accommodate poetic dialogues and reinforce the potential for social relation and interactions in the city. They give very real and clear invitations to overlap an emotional layer and function on the city map.
August 2013 in Finland and February 2014 in Iceland. A laboratory project on participatory choreography.
We tune into the cultural heritage and questions definitions of artificial and natural, of culture and nature, of civilization and nature and our paradigms that go along with them. What are our bodies revealing: when are they part of and operating within nature, when distanced from it? The final performance will involve the audience as a “dancer”, work with evoking physical sensitivity and be stimulating the body of the participant to experience the surroundings from a kinesthetic and sensory point of view.
A participatory choreography of 2 to 4 hours duration. Guided by a booklet, a group of up to 100 people are invited into a space of sensitive meetings and discovery. Triggered by actions participants do together, sensory exploration, and invitations for conversations beyond the usual, a different social fabric emerges, relations are enhanced, and possibilities for collective action revisited, surfaced and released.
A performative travel combined with a Do-it-yourself performance provided by SMS.
On intimacy and distance in virtual or physical spaces and on meeting one another.
The audience is invited to embark on a playful study of the city and unusual encounters with other travellers, with a user manual at hand. An invitation for a gentle demolition of ones thought system. Each performance creates a unique fiction based on the individual audience member’s experience, senses and relation to a diverse surrounding and each other.
A walk on the inhabiting of place. On being part of. On being there.
The audience is guided one by one through the old city of Jerusalem. With stimulations from text, sound and meetings with performers, the walk offered a different entrance into this place with such complex conditions and a multitude of visible and invisible boundaries.
A walk 1:1 in the center of Recife on the myth of a place.
The old town of Recife. It’s the symbol of the town; everyone has an image of it. Daily life thereis busy during the day. In the evening the place is inhabited by people with very few economic ressources. In forgotten colonial buildings and abandoned houses
A participatory walk 1:1 in the area of Santo Amaro.
A workers area. Many people are out of work. It s far off for most people. People from other areas in San Paulo do not want to go there and wrinkle there forhead: you do this project in Santo Amaro?.People who live there, like living there, and are proud to be part of Santo Amaro district.
A series of laboratories to explore the untapped potential of the approach and develop the practice further. The laboratories deal with audience relation, framing and contextualizing life in public space, the relation of virtual presence and physical presence and the development of social sensitive spaces.
'The Invisible Reality Show #5 - zap yourself' was done in the very diverse neighborhood of Copenhagen - Vesterbro, where contrasts of new expensive sushi bars, prostitution, drug addicts, a new shopping mall, run down houses and initiatives by engaged citizens, are situated side by side on an area very small in size.

The audience was moving on a 1,5 hours path in and around a shopping mall. We created different frames for meeting oneself in this specific surrounding, between mannequin puppets, people and shoes, making space to let each persons own response to such environment become vital, real and the centre of the work.
The show was set on the beautiful Dutch Island of Terschelling.
We were invited to work in a 4 week residency at the OEROL annual festival for site specific theatre. We made this first performative travel, stretching across an open sand-dune landscape, through a small forest, a bicycle ride through the nearby small town, to end on the broad proud beach of the island.

A project for neighborhood development and art in non-art spaces with local participation, in cooperation with City of Words- Vesterbro
An event to focus on the universal force of listening and the power of silenceTo make the invisible act of listening visible in public space. An event to make people connect and experience a reconstruction of basic social encounter.
