Searching for Nigel
Film, installation
Searching for Nigel is a film about love and distance, humans and animals, lost carrier pigeons and messages left on read. It’s a story about how a boy fell in love with a bird and how a bird fell in love with a statue.

The film circles around Nigel, the gannet who fell in love with a concrete bird made by a group of scientists on Mana Island. In a mix between a missing people documentary and a romcom, fact and fiction blends as we meet different people connected to Nigel, all asking the same question: Why did he leave us?

Tæt, lukket: Museum (”Close, closed: Museum”)
Performance
Tæt, lukket: Museum is a participatory play for two participants that took place in the public space of Copenhagen during lockdown.

Two people meet at a museum, but realize at their arrival that the museum is closed.

A: And there are four people and they are naked, but not in a sexy way, more in a I’m-making-scrambled-eggs-and-I-don’t-bother-to-put-on-clothes kind of way. Or they are not completely naked. One of them is wearing a little crown that looks like a moon.

My cherry lips have often kissed thy stones   
Performance
What can a talking wall teach us about love?

My cherry lips have often kissed thy stones is a monologue revolving around the character Wall from A Midsummer Night’s Dream. It’s a story about how to become a wall, about the lovers who are separated by the wall and about what the wall has to say in this network of bodies and objects. It’s a hybrid between a lecture, a lip sync and a play on walls and humans, on Eros and glory holes and on holding a brick in your hand and declaring that you are a wall.
