But He Does Not Rule The Heavens

BUT HE DOES NOT RULE THE HEAVENS was created as an independent visual layer to the site-specific performance project My Icarus Complex.
But He Does Not Rule The Heavens is a series of photographs composed through virtous movements, fueled by an emotional desire to be free. A burning itch to shatter the shackels of society and fly high in the sky.
To dance around the sun till you feel the burn and then drift off into the cold and quiet dark

NOON explores the social dynamics between generations, and the contrasts between traditional and contemporary society. Choreographer Troels Primdahl and I worked with locals in Blanca, a rural village in southern Spain. We managed to work with a group of elderly women, the theatre group Las Atrevidas and a group of younger teenage girls from a dance school, Las bailarinas de Zariza Danza. The process of working with both a younger and an elderly social group in the village gave a very interesting view into the social dynamics and contradictive relations of each group to the traditional way of life in the village.

a multi-sensory chamber opera

DUST engages an international community of artists initiated by the progressive Danish composer Line Tjørnhøj. In August 2015 the first edition of a contemporary Gesamtkunstwerk was premiered in Aarhus, Denmark. On an existential quest for a new social agenda and new way of making collaborative art, the interdisciplinary ensemble began their journey into the core of chaos, desire and love.
