Design for stage
I direct and produce stage shows, and can deliver digital scenography and extraordinary set/costume designs.

Elves beach is an urban game and parkour experience. The game will bring stories of citizens to life, connected to training sculptures around the city, turning the city into a big board game. We want to use the city as test ground for new ways to use technology and deal with issues like segregation and fear. With athlete Samir Gadre and Stampede, we also want to start a user driven culture space in the center of Gothenburg.
Video from my previous research and documentary projects about parkour based on my interest in what I call mind parkour, and psychogeography. I met awesome communities and runners in New York, Montreal, Gothenburg and Berlin. Linked here is also a video by Steve Zavitz showing the NYC community.
