Performance Discipline
performance / research
(The visual archive and descriptions of my work is now primarily on:

My artistic work originally started with developing durational interactive installations as activist means to perform critique and execute artistic interventional strategies. In 2008 I co-founded the Copenhagen-based performance collective Club de la Fay, working to manifest- and lead people through ritualistic structures into parallel fictional universes. To make various sites of society resonate aesthetically with our desire for other kinds of worlds. In 2010 three of us also co-founded the performance agency Fiction Pimps with a partnership in the futurist company House of Futures to make our work with performance part part of interdisciplinary projects and research.

In many of my works I've developed qualitative research methods to document and study the audience/participant's experience of art. This academic part of my work has been intertwined many times with Fiction Pimp’s performance techniques to make visible otherwise invisible images of our selves and manifest what may be perceived as inner landscapes. This year I have starting to work intensely with Russian actor and directors Michael Chechov's psycho-somatic acting technique. I am thrilled to be exploring the technique in both movement-based research session with dancers and when directing performers in embodying images for specific performance installation. A work dedicated to finding ways of what I like to call 'materialising imagination'.
