I am working on a new creation with Dancer Jonathan Sanchez and musician Mikki Benson, “Methods of Completion, a being haunted by purpose” a revision and development of solo work “ Methods of Completion, a being that causes itself” that i created alone during first lockdown in my room and with support of residency program Nah Dran at Ada studio in 2020.
Premiere and Showing of
“Methods of Completion, a being haunted by purpose” 30.min
“ Methods of Completion, a being that causes itself” 30 min.
at 19.00 in Acker Stadt Palast
Premiere of “white” is done, and there with also my final project for theese graduating acting students.
Its such a gift to watch people grow and search over the time of 4 years, its with a lot of proudness and exitements that i say goodbye to this women for now, and without to much sentiment i can say that teaching, teaches the teacher as much as, if not more than, the students.

I'm exited to be invited to play at Bådteatret in Copenhagen, Denmark with my Solo Work "Methods of Completion, a being that causes it self" creted during the first lockdown, with support from Ada / Ufer studeios Berlin,
Contemporary Dabke Workshop
Online from 8th of January on Mondiale Berlin.
with Medhad Aldaabal, Edith Buttingsrud Pedersen and Ali Hasan
The workshop focuses on creating complex body awareness, understanding body-mind connection, individual physicality and releasing reliance on the brain. We learn how to use the emotional state and the precise imagery as a motor for movement. We, Edith and Medhat, have combined the work of contemporary dance and traditional “Dabke” (a Syrian dance), into a fun and communal explorative journey for this workshop. We will work to free the body from its determination and ordinary paths, and encourage the participants to develop layers of complexity in their physical language. Learning how to value the body as an instrument and "brain". The workshop will be accompanied by live music with Ali Hasan.

Some Moments from Rehearsals for Upcoming dance film "In Venus" in Uferstudios.
3 days of shooting, 5 days of rehearsals and months of zoom calls, research exchange and and and .. is over .. it’ been a beautiful proces and it will be a beautiful film! It was an experiment, and an attempt to move away from the Guru mentality I sometimes experience in arts universities and theachings.
I decided to work collaboratively and as a colleague rather than a teacher with my students from
Athanor Akademie they made it possible for me to share and rely on them as friends, colleagues and Inspirational sources.
Stay Tunned !
After 3 weeks of rehersals in my room, my solo "Methods of Completion, a being that causes it self" is there and will be streamed 25-26th April at

CONCEPT & CHOREOGRAPHY
Edith Buttingsrud Pedersen & Jahman Davine
"The dancers are expressionless, void of emotion, which adds to the creepy workout vibe. It is as if they were dead bodies reanimated. All of it seems like a culty dance. The dancers are so full of grace, yet so devoid of happiness. The motions are entrancing. As the song enters its minimal stages the brutality and rottenness of nature is shown, then the dancers enter an orgy, devoid of all sexuality. " FULL REVIEW
