“I am interested in performance art and its possibilities to combine and overlap unique and various physical acts together with digital mediums. I like to practice my own somatic physicality and explore opportunities that multimedia offers and present these two practises separately as well as seek for integrations.
I am looking for performers/movers to surprise me and surprise themselves. I am looking for movements which are established inside the body and which are created in the moment. I am looking for exciting present and momentum reactions. I am interested in witnessing the performer's choices in the present. I like to work within an improvisational framework. I like to make my own frames and then break them sometimes. In contact, either physical or not, there is lot of information to play with. I like to have different focus points, to play around with and within the touch.”
