Eksogen is my 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.
I additionally got the opportunity to show a solo excerpt from the show during Varcenefest 2019, which was reviewed by journalist Anki Gerhardsen as
