It’s blowing outside here at BIRCA and we’ve had to light up the wood stove, a sign that the season is about to end. BUT … before that happens, we have a culture week program to present – and I am super proud of how much it will be this year. First we start the […]

Summer greetings from BIRCA

As it has probably dawned on most people, I am mostly at BIRCA these days and have had a wonderful spring. We are now closing down a few weeks for the summer – and it happens after the busiest spring in BIRCA’s history. That despite – or maybe just because of the corona crisis. All […]

ARTISTIC ENTREPRENEURSHIP – What can we use it for??

Artistic Entrepreneurship

  I’ve been out swinging my hat and enjoying a few festivals. Lots of cool performances and meetings with colleagues during CPH Stage with the launch of UPgrade International, which I have been working on for a couple of months. Followed directly by the Folkemøde (People’s Meeting – a big political platform festival) at Bornholm […]

Are you ready to undfold your potential?

I make an effort to be the best version of myself every day. The version that sees other people and supports their way in life. The version that does not cause unnecessary noise in the world. That supports my surroundings. A person to deserve trust. A person that adds something new to the world.   […]

International perspectives

Working internationally is absolutely essential to me – it’s in my blood. I started out in the 90s with Trevor Davies as a mentor in the Copenhagen Culture City 96 days, where we had a stream of international projects and guest performances – and it has been in my blood ever since. Therefore, the international […]

Inspirations and projects spring 2018

I’m on my way out in the world for a while. Tomorrow I am flying in to Brussels for the IETM meeting – first premeeting on a new network project called DeploY, then lots of networking with old and new collegues. Then great adventures are waiting at Bali, where I for 2 weeks will be […]
