Four days of experimenting with photography, bodies, ropes, skin, poledance and roller skates at WRAP. This is part of the first project that I'm running one hundred percent solo. It is a search for what voice I have as an artist when I'm not part of the dynamics of a group, but alone responsible for the direction. Very intense and productive four days!
Visiting the wind-tunnel for a little flight together with Happy Gorilla and the expanded team! Leap of Faith - but safely assisted and contained this time. Will there be a real parachute jump coming up...?
The new Happy Gorilla project Leap of Faith is now in progress with Kjartan and me working solo before the rest of the team will join later. We've been at WRAP for a week and now we're going to Zagreb to continue the exchange with the Croatian artist and the project Europa Mon Amore.
A new period at Ålesund Kunstfagskole coming up where I'm gonna teach a class in readymades and after that assist the teacher following them through their final projects.
Enjoying a few days of residency together with Franzisca and the project Sketchwork on TIME in Tromsø. Tonight we perform!
After exploring masks and mask making at my studio for a few weeks my creations will tonight come to life in a performance ritual called Come Dance With Us. We've been four women exploring ritualistic practices and drum ceremonies and how to take this into an art context.
Final exam in my project leadership study is now complete!
One week of Happy Gorilla experiments coming up at WRAP with a Croatian artist visiting Bergen.
Study, study, study. Reading up on project economy in my project leadership study. This is the last subject and I'm closing in on exam-time.
Vakt - a dance performance by Karen Foss Quiet Works is now performed and rigged down. I've reshaped parts of their old scenography to fit this new piece and it was interesting to work with few elements in a very open space for the dancers. I saw the piece three times and discovered something new every evening!
