I am currently an in house playwright at Dramatikkens Hus - The Norwegian Centre for New Playwriting (NCNP), a national development and resource center for new dramatic writing.
My debut play Culparegelen was shown at the Dramatikkfestivalen (the Norwegian contemporary playwrights festival) in 2015
and following that i received a one-year working grant from the Norwegian Arts Council. I have since written several plays, and at the moment I am working on a commission for Det Norske Teatret in Oslo.
Please get in touch if you would like a sample of my plays.
English: «ICE BURN» (sample)
German: «FROSTSCHADEN» (sample)
«BILD VON FAULENDEM OBST» (full translation)
As a scenographer I have been working freelance for both independent projects and established theatres for well over 12 years.
I have an MA Scenography from Central Saint Martins College of Art and Design, London, and a BA(Hons) Film & Video from International Film school of Wales.
I love the process of making theatre and like to be hands on, whether it is expressions of contemporary dance, multimedia performance, documentary theatre or more traditional stage design.
I love the way costumes can communicate the unspoken, not only about character but also the world of the play, underlying themes or meaning.
As a costume designer and maker I am (more or less) self taught. I have always made clothes, and have experience from drawing, sewing and sourcing costumes.
For 3 years I also owned and ran the vintage and re-design shop "Lucky Buttons" in Grünerløkka, Oslo.
