Working as an artistic director gives me the opportunity to work with peers in many fields. Creating an arena where artist of a high level meet and develop a performance together is always a fantastically intereseting and elevating experience. This time, I did a free improviation peace to a coreography by hip-hop dancers Catherine Michelet and Navid Rezwani, I accompanied Richard Strauss’ “Morgen” with opera singer Lina Johnsson and a string quartet combined with a solo improvisation and I played Edvard Grieg’s “Det første Møde” combined with a break dance performance and playing with Breakestra’s “Family Rap”.

At first, I was not sure how I would make an opera singer work with hip-hop dancers, but the minute they met my worries were gone – of course these fantastic artists know how to invest themselves, maintain their integrity and make a quality performance.
