In the first glimpse I recognize your hands. Slowly I notice your gestures. In her presence I see myself standing there. With her I see the other. Together, “you” and “I” are strangers.
I see you again, and your eyes, in which I encounter the self and recognize a stranger. How many times can we meet one another in one encounter? With this piece an encounter between two people is presented, in which various fragments of gestures, surprises, and playfulness between two are explored.
This is the first piece I directed and showed in Berlin. It is a Multi-disciplinary dance performance.
The performance is dealing with two strangers meeting each other, and how such an encounter can change the life of both participants. The same meeting is introduced from different angles on different levels over and over again. The more levels we meet the story, the more apparent it becomes that meeting a stranger is our best chance for understanding our motivation and character.
This is a playful but critical piece related to the self in context of actual politics and cyber environments, and how fulfilling certain roles take away from our experiencing the world surrounding us. Perhaps solidarity as a term in some cases could be replaced by curiosity or self-interest.
The performance premiers on the 23rd of February 2017 at Dock11, and is made with the help of Dock11, Tanzfabrik, and Wiesen 55e.V.
Doos is an adventure with Mr. Hat, a curious, brave and child-like character who dives into imaginary worlds and captivates the audience with strange, exciting and funny escapades.
In his newest adventure, Mr. Hat’s imagination sees him diving into a simple cardboard box only to find wild weather, crazy creatures, a most unusual choir and a wonderful voyage through space.
On Being Ill is a sound and movement installation piece, played in a theater. The subject of the installation is illness, and its starting point is the book from Virginia Woolf with the same title. It is an accompaniment into absence, with an eye on all the non-communicated content of illness.
The narrative is a journey along the spine, embodiment of several conditions of illness, and where the illness is never an end point, a result to evaluate, merely a starting point. The body and the mind too is always looking for new alignments instead of judging the current condition. Could society perhaps adapt to such an agility too, turning its back to the good old dualistic habit of judgement?
The project is a research of presence, and is directed to explore the possible mental and emotional states resulting of acute physical condition. On Being Ill is driving our attention to the content of certain conditions, releasing them from their dogmatic brackets of dictated value. Throughout the piece the event of a ritual naturally happens.
This is the first movement performance I have directed in an assignment-based collaboration in which content, editing and dramaturgy (light and staging) was my responsibility. This methodology encouraged me to envision and direct further movement performances using my visual arts educational background.
This is an improvised performance of Tri Co. group, performed in 2013 in Theater Perdu, and then in 2014 in Montemurlo, and Teatro della Limonaia in Sesto Fiorentino in Tuscany.
Mouthpiece is a piece of plastic that is protecting a boxer from losing his teeth in a fight.
It’s very technical, it is similar to the fourth wall. But does it effect the brain of the boxer in fight? Will he percieve the fist as lesser of a threat?
Our mouthpiece is an improvisation piece with
overhead projection, light, dance and music.
Air is a 50 minutes dance piece choreographed by Miri Lee.
I got the honour to co-create with Miri. We worked together on her concept, that was based on Korean traditional dance, more specifically the breathing scale of it.
