Residence Period: 2022.04.09-2022.06.19
Halfdans Hokus Pokus, Set design, The Royal Danish Theatre
During the residence I am going to work with my traveling art project Virgin Tour - A very personal art project about my own private story as a 34 year old virgin.With performances and scenographic tableaus I am combining my personal story with old European folklore and ancient Western myths in order to blur the lines between private and public, fiction and reality. From the very beginning it has been a dream for me to travel to Japan and take this magical creature from Western folklore and place it in Tokyo thus making a sudden, unexpected vision and cultural exchange in the streets of Akihabara.
