Werdegang / Ausbildung: 
I work with theatre as an artform of kleptomania, as a practice which both gives agency to other artforms within a performance but at the same time gives them a strange frame. I encounter theater performances as objects with very short lifetime. I work in a maximalistic way which means that I would like to give the spectator an intense experience that is hard to forget and something impossible to experience outside the theatre. I’m interested in how one experience a performance, and the feelings it can generate; things too difficult to describe. I often work with the site of the performance itself as a material and what it could generate when it comes to feelings, situations, moods. In that way, I always work site specific even in a black box and I think one has to be specific and humble when it comes to different places and spectators. I work with the politics of aesthetics, fiction, illusion, sincerity, speculation rather than distance and deconstruction.
