I often see solutions and opportunities in situations that many consider to be difficult and demanding, or even "impossible". This is my art, my creation, I am a renaissance man. I have lots of insights in different arts crafts. I am disciplined in 2-dimensional art form and have acquired knowledge in theater, circus, music production, poetry and dance. This has helped a lot when working with youths in various projects.
I am a crazy method artist who almost never comes out of character or costume for that matter! Visual arts, scenography, stunts, dancing, pyro acts and karaoke ;) is just some of the few skills that I´ll combine in this project - City as a Playground.
Curiosity drives my senses, an eagerness to meet new environments, to be thrown into the unknown. I am seeking to witness transformations, to experience how the encounter with the unfamiliar enlarges former body-mind horizons. I understand doubt as a body-mind game, questioning, arguing, despairing, maybe solving. Claiming the right of the foolish I embrace the laughter, love the joke, cross the borders between reason and stupidity. Together with the Ar(t)chitects I aim to transcend disciplines, to break down hierarchies in order to connect and to exchange, making the community larger, making the community dance. Let’s try out upside-down approaches, circling around, let’s get confused, wander to other places, move then back and discover hidden storylines.

I am fascinated by what moves people. This has driven me both in my work as a psychologist and a dance teacher. In my experience moving bodies and moving minds concern very much the same stuff and I´ve been integrating both worlds where I can. I like being on the edge of things, pioneering into new territories. One field that had a major impact on me is community building. Having had the opportunity to deeply immerse myself in community work, its methodologies, with traditions of nonviolence and the spirit of Ubuntu, has given me a deep appreciation of our profound interconnectedness. It´s my fascination with movement and appreciation of our connections that I bring to the table as an Ar(t)chitect.
I love the arts, never been able to resist them. Happily wasting every hour of life in front of a piano, in the community of a choir, in a straight line of dancers in the ballet class, high up in the air on a rope, letting balls form patterns in the air, carrying a friend on my shoulders, improvising, balancing, clowning, dancing. I want to share the happiness I find in the arts with others. I want the meeting through the arts to be a lab, a safe space, where we together can find and develope our ways of being and interacting, to let that influence the society as a whole. A symphatetic, creative and human revolution.
