I believe in art as a battlefield for strong and independent artists that dare to challenge themselves and the society.

I believe in the importance of working locally and globally at the same time. 

I believe in collaborations build on trust and equality.

I’m interested in art that cross over borders and wants to investigate new territories artistically and geographically.

I’m interested in structures in the performing arts as well as in the society and how the art can challenge these structures.
