I investigate how my body and landscapes are extensions of each other. From there I look for beauty in abjection and abjection in beauty; When the abject becomes beautiful, the predictable loosens its grip and the world opens. I seek to embody the beauty through choreography, mapping, film and model building.

I am a dancer and choreographer from The Danish National School of Performing Arts and has since 1994 worked freelance in several productions in Denmark and abroad.
From 2001-07 I was active in the performance group of the gender political association dunst. In 2018 I wrote the article dunst 2001-07 Aesthetics of Abjection published in Peripeti, a magazine for dramaturgical studies.
In 2014 I became a landscape architect (cand.hort.arch) specialising in relations between movement, space and time.
Since spring 2020 I have been an active member of Cirkusbygningen i Sandvig – an art- and community centre in Northern Bornholm. In 2021 I became a board member. During this period I have coordinated various events together with the other board members to support and build up the artistic and cultural community on Bornholm, mainly northern Bornholm.
