VRA VRA VRA is a culmination of the bachelor work and the personal journey that emerged from it.

The project has its base from a two-week workshop with TWIS (The World Is Sound) dealing with “human voice in motion”. The objective of this project is to transmit the experiences made during these last months.

The sharing consists of multiple exercises, a bike ride, a homemade suit, personal notes and a reconstruction of the Berlin tribe – all exploring the human voice and its inherent creativity.

A huge thanks to Alessio Castellacci, Irena Z. Tomažin and the rest of the tribe.

to shift to change to be with movement to be with this moment to be with these things to make something to make my experience possible to transform my experience to experience something different to work in alternatives to give to receive to serve to give to receive from and serve the work to remove myself from the work in order to see it differently to destroy the search for meaning to destroy the search for joy for happiness to destroy expectations to surprise myself to entertain myself to challenge myself to take care of myself to make frames that serve me and not break me to make frames that could help me see the work from other perspectives to trust the practice to practice practicing to recover to heal to pause the tumbling motion of life for one moment to fantasize to imagine to imagine a possible future to gather resources to try to put myself first and see what happens to dig to excavate to give time for reflection to make space for contemplation to act to act directly to act directly and immediately to give thanks to acknowledge influences to embrace influences to trust intuition to allow change to fake change to fake motivation to deal intimately with giving up

New Repetitions

by Ida Mariboe Nielsen

Repeating the repetition

reconstructing, redefining, recognising, reconsidering, reformulating 

repeating, recognising and reconsidering what the repetition means to me and how I could redefine it for myself


Differentiating from before

trying to get rid of time


zooming in on the micro-movements in my body 

How much of my body can I be aware of in this moment? 

I am starting with my breath. Inhale and exhale. 


My body contains it all

The movements. The air is touching my skin.

The phrase is a container

The movements dance inside of the positions

A performance of mixed material 

If I go here

I will have 

gone here

But if I turn direction

where will I end up

If I dig up the

treasures of my past


they still worth a


Some salt some


Some blue some shadows


borrowed something stolen

A pile

of trash or another



way to go go 





What got lost


Go back

Go back



then what


By means of mass production and pressuring time frames I betook myself to a space and a mindset to produce within - a meeting point of old ideas and imaginations, current thoughts and occupations, embodied knowledge as well as unforeseeable impulses.

A research on decision making processes and modes of performing. Finding pathways to accumulatelatelatelatelatelate to then tidy up the chaos.

- how long does a friendship take?

The piece SLAP HIT HUG is a collaboration between the Odense Acting programme and the Dance and Choreography programme in Copenhagen.

It is a physical and artistic research of a friendship.

In a friendship, we are confronted with each other’s energy, aggression and love. 

We are two guys, and that is our starting point.

Off you go

Vis beskrivelse

This is a place.

Entangled gatherings. Zones, uncertain.

A see-saw, a window, a gateway
Into and out,
Out into limitations

Abruptly disconnected

Ich ich ich.
How about: us, us, us?

B E come – Emanuel, for example

Du har gjort det igen.

A work on what happens when two performers research on „transitions“ and „states“ over some weeks. Starting from materials, restrictions were used to limit and yet stay connected.

Comments from WikHow staff editor: 
Yes, everyone can float in water, but fear can prevent some people from learning.
Always have someone to watch you when you are doing this. They’ll be able to help you with anything while you’re floating.

Thank you

Hard White

by Nadia Bounenni

Skjul beskrivelse
Vis beskrivelse

This is a research-based project and has an initial reference on inappropriate behavior in various contexts. The spectators are taken into a journey, where they will reflect on their own references and will create awareness of their experiential associations under the exposure of certain visual, audio and other elements of stimulation.

Hard White is a question, a dialog and most of all, an inappropriate ride to the politics of self-expression.

Special thanks to my class, the faculty, and the production team.

Because I was already there
Because I needed to start from something 
There was silence in between
There was movement in between
Another movement

I make a movement, I repeat it, I go to another movement
Somewhere to go
Somewhere to stay
Somewhere to come back
It is going back and forward, constantly

He wiped his forehead and picked up another trowel
Seven others did the same

Zone and Load

by Uma Shannon

Skjul beskrivelse
Vis beskrivelse

A dance that dances with you; Circulating around hoem as an idea and a place of habitat, rest, and what motivates me to study my body. In my life home has been fleeting and an always heartbreak to leave.

In this process, home became my body, my body my home. This is where all dances begin, at home. This dance is the physicalized manifestation of a period of what has felt like uproot myself; again and again, in different places, with different people, but ultimately always finding home. When I leave I now leave with the lesson that can only be learned through the body and expressed through dance.

A solo. A result of a search for movement material in which I see myself. I work with different textures, shapes, and sounds, looking for safety and affiliation.
