I have been working in the performing arts sector since 2001 and my passion and curiosity leads to various partnerships and collaborations in Scandinavia and internationally. As a producer and now agent I have build my experience in coordinating international cultural projects in close collaboration with performing art companies, organisations and individual artists.
I work with zero visibility corp. (Oslo, Norway) led by the internationally acclaimed choreographer Ina Christel Johannessen. More recent I have established collaborations with Stian Danielsen (Oslo, Norway) an emerging choreographer and Jon R. Skulberg (Copenhagen, Denmark) scenographer and choreographer. In addition to this I also consult artists and producers, having being involved in different mentorship programmes: Initiator of the Mentor Room at IETM. Mentor at the Nordic Baltic Kedja network and member of the mentorbank at Dansehallerne (Copenhagen) and now a Mentor in the Nordic Circle of Artistic Managment.
Previous experience includes a close collaboration with the organization Performing Arts Hub Norway, coordinating the Norwegian delegation at the Association of Performing Arts Presenters APAP (New York). My role as project coordinator for the IETM plenary meeting in Copenhagen (2012), in collaboration with Dansehallerne.
Going back in time I started building my network in the sector through studying dramaturgy. Then touring with Granhøj Dans and hosting events at Gran – teater for dans in Århus, Denmark. In 2008 – 2010 I was the Project Manager for “HamletZar”, initiated by Vahid Evazzadeh, a research project developed through residencies for artists from various artistic disciplines.
In my development I value my 2007 move to London to study Arts Administration & Cultural Policy, at Goldsmiths University of London and the opportunity at ISPA through the Regional ISPA Fellowship – pursuing development of the performance arts sector.
