In the dark months of November and December 2018 I was working as a dramaturg on a project by TeaterKUNST in the town Kokkedal in the northern part Zealand. The aim was to work with young people in a housing area with a complicated reputation. And tell their stories about the area through artistic means. The kids were amazing, creative and fun – and the team worked so hard on the project, connecting, opening up and exploring with them. The results can be experienced as an augmented reality walk on location and seen on this website: HOLY SHIT KOKKEDAL
This year I’ve been asked by the progressive and internationally minded Teater Republique in Copenhagen to assist talented, Berlin-based director; Lydia Bunk in putting together a text for her version of The Odyssey! Homer’s amazing epic is as relevant as ever, as we explore the role of the soldiers returning from war. Today, in the last century or 2000 years ago – it’s a long and perilous journey to free yourself of the horrors and really arrive home.
From my particular position in the world – partly living on the divided island of Cyprus – this is a great and exciting challenge. Very happy to be part of this project!
