During my residency at IASPIS I will focus on two projects :

Project 1
Hemsjuka was a performance presented in 2018.
We are revisiting the material and changing it into a film were we keep exploring homesickness, our time of geographical ideological and social homelessness.
Our bodies as homes and places.
Choreography and empathy as means to grasp cases of homesickness.

Project 2
Going where the sun keeps shining
Together with the choreographer, dancer and vocalist Ellen Södehult I will do a 20 minutes piece. We will explore sounds musicality choreography together with the very pretentious  task to make this interdisciplinary work create a new space, somewhere we (Ellen and Sandra) have never been before.
