Introduction
I am a dancer, choreographer and author. I received my BA in Contemporary dance at the Oslo National Academy of the Arts, the Academy of Dance in 2006.

When confronted with something that doesn’t perform as expected or resists classification we have to look for new approaches, and in these moments of liminality there is potential for the unpredictable and unforeseen to occur.
