The choreography
Our fears are often the sides of ourselves that we reluctantly face. During countless conversations between ourselves and our thoughts, we often repeat the same questions over and over again. So why is it that we can’t make a decision or find a solution? Why do we always doubt before making a move? We can only find solutions through actions, stand up and physically engage ourselves. Once the body makes a move, the mind often realizes there was little to fear. The mind plays tricks, jumping from one picture to another. So more often than not, we lose the willpower or lack the courage for fear of thinking about all the possible negative outcomes.

What are the highlights from your career up till now?
Participating in the NW dance project competition & Copenhagen Choreography Competition.

Why did you register for RIDCC?
This is my second time that I applied to this competition and already from the Pre-Jury, I got the feeling of high quality work selection.

What do you think RIDCC will bring you?
Experience, visibility and good connection for future works.

What do you wish to cause with your choreography?
Emotion between feeling part of the story and the experience and at the same time reflecting on life in relationships, where many things happen to find the right balance.
