Eksogen is Mathilde's debut performance as a choreographer created in collaboration with the newly established North-Norwegian contemporary dance company Intakt. The show aims to explore whether there is a potential for violence in each individual human body through the philosophical lense of psychologist Carl Jung.

 

It delves into the process of realising the shadow that is welded into our deep unconscious mind and evolves around Jung's quote: that which we do not bring to consciousness appears in our lives as fate - C.G. Jung. Eksogen premiered in August 2019, and did guest performances at the Platform Nord festival and Dissidanse Dance Festival the same year. 

 

Mathilde additionally got the opportunity to show a solo excerpt from the show during Vårcenefest 2019, which was reviewed by journalist Anki Gerhardsen as

EKSOGEN II

Eksogen II is an interactive film version of the original stage performance, where you as an audience member can choose the outcome of the storyline by choosing different options that pop up on the screen throughout the film.

 

Eksogen II was created because the performing arts festival Vårscenefest had to cancel their festival, due to Covid-19, and decided to go online instead. The festival asked us (Intakt) to come up with an idea that could work on an online platform, and with that this film became a reality.

The material used within both the stage performance and in the making of the film is black tissue paper and has been reused and recycled.
