Dancer – has worked with Claire Parsons since 2010 and from 2013 as a full time company member.

Where do you come from? 
I grew up in Skogsnäs, a small village with 60 inhabitants in rural Norrland in northern Sweden.

Some highlights from your professional life
There are so many great moments and memories that it really is hard to decipher only a few. I am grateful that I have been part of so many different types of projects and contexts, large and small, with so many fantastic collegues, and in performances that I really value. I have one strong memory from when we performed Marmalade for children in an economically challenged area in New York. The joy and enthusiasm from that meeting is hard to describe.

Why do you want to be in work for young audiences?
I love the directness and the spontaneous comments that often just occur during a performance. Children are sincere and tell us straight out what they thinking and feeling. I really appreciate the honesty in communicating with us. Few things can beat performing for an audience of two-year olds bubbling inconrollably with laughter.
