I believe in people and their stories. They are the bridge that connects our lives and our understanding of each other. Through dance and theater improvisation, I help myself and others to unleash their creativity and playfully explore new perspectives. In recent years, I have lived, studied and worked in Stockholm but have now moved back to Halland to explore new environments and contexts for my art. I have training in both dance and physical theater and would say that the body is my biggest tool in my work. In 2015-2016, I studied at Dell'Arte International in the USA and deepened my knowledge in character work, commedia, melodrama, clown and shadow play. I now try to spread these forms of theater through performances, teaching and workshops in a Sweden characterized by a very psychologically analytical theater. I want to help people free their bodies from the strict structure of society and learn how to use the body as a means of expression.

I live my life with artistic energy and ambitious vision.
