Costume for dance

Upcoming collaboration with award-winning Greek perfomer and choreographer Chara Kotsali. 

Whereas noise in Western society alludes to something negative, the new work of up-and-coming choreographer Chara Kotsali explores the beneficial power of noise in the way to generate joy, solidarity, and a sense of community. Two bodies on stage, a potential extension of an endless human chain, engage in an unproductive dance, in a counter-concert dedicated to the pleasure of disintegration.

Premiering on July 19 at the GRAPE, Athens Epidaurus Festival.

Dark, Happy, To the Core
Costume for dance


A performance where seven archetypes are making sense out of the world, and each other. Dark, Happy, To the Core is future myth-making, born at the heart of the massive Roskilde Festival in Denmark.

“[...]the world around us doesn't look too bright but here we are, having to make sense of this rapidly changing world, deteriorating notions and systems, the ruins of one things and the emergence of other things--I believe as artists we have the unique opportunity to create new stories that speak to this moment and also the future. [...]” 

- Malik Nashad Sharpe, choreographer

Bien y Mal
Costume for dance


"[...]where rapture lies side by side with the dark and the horror of something more violent." 

Thomas Olsson, SvD
︎Full article (in Swedish)

Stakes are high and the potential to fall too. In the piece Bien y Mal by choreographer Ofelia Jarl Ortega, five characters are facing the same fate, dealing with it in different ways. What at first seems graspable is displaced, and becomes uncertainty. There are neither good nor bad intentions, only devotion.

Tour dates 2023:
May 16-17: Dansehallerne, Copenhagen
May 25-27: Arsenic, Lausanne
July 12+14: ImPulsTanz, Vienna

Choreography: Ofelia Jarl Ortega in close collaboration with the performers

StM - A Version

Costume for dance


In StM the border between performer and spectator is not a divide but an opening. Here the borderland is a place to talk about the evasive. It is a space that pulses, yields and gives the spectator’s gaze a body.

Costume for revitalisation of Ofelia Jarl Ortega’s ground-breaking piece. Premiered at MDT (Moderna dansteatern) in Stockholm in summer 2022.

For this production for Dansens hus and Weld Company I wanted to highlight the participating dancers, as well as bringing them together and form a collective.

Phoenix is a work created with choreographer Rebecka Stillman. On stage we meet 13 dance artists who use different chorographical methods to explore what it means to actually be a company.

Production for Dansens hus, premiering at April 28, 2016.

Nånting Måste Gå Sönder

Costume for feature film


When Sebastian meets Andreas for the first time, he knows immediately that they belong together. While Sebastian defies norms of gender and does not hide his androgynous gender fluidity which undermines everything that society sees as normal, Andreas tries to deal with the fact that for the first time he is attracted someone of the same sex.

Awarded with Guldbaggen (Swedish national film award) for Best Female Lead (Saga Becker as Sebastian).

Costume for feature film


“Far from a conventional documentary, ‘She Male Snails’ was first intended as a portrait of transgender artist/author Eli Leven for Swedish television, but evolved over time into an experimental mood piece that sometimes elicits comparison with Cam Archer's ‘Wild Tigers I Have Known’ or early Derek Jarman.”

Alissa Simon, Variety (2012)
