RESHAPING NEO-CLASSICISM

I would describe myself as a choreographer who mixes neo-classical traditions with the influences that I have accumulated during my life and career. These influences includes dance, art, new media, historical periods and their ideals, mythology, literature, architecture as well as sculptural form.

Music fascinates and inspires me, it is integral to all my work. I always search for music that has a strong identity and distinctive themes. As such, I collaborate closely with composers when they write music for my ballets.This creates a ‘cloud’ of creation that enables me to develop a very personal form of dance within the classical form, continually pushing the boundaries of recognised dance/theaters conventions.

I like to work with creative people who give me feedback and challenge my work - people who want to explore and don’t just want to be told what to do. Similarly, I would like audiences to approach my work with open- and liberal- minded spirit. I believe the end product can be witnessed as a dynamic painting of movement that allows for a number of individuals interpretations, all different but heading in the same ground breaking direction.
