About me

I was born in Denmark (1979), raised in Sweden, and moved to Paris in 1999. I graduated from the Sorbonne in 2007 with a Master’s degree in History of Science. I have more than 15 years of experience in the field of improvisational theatre and have specialised in physical theatre (mime/clown) since 2008 when I met my mentor Ira Seidenstein. I co-direct Impro Academy together with my friend (and first teacher) Florian Bartsch in Paris. I have a more or less improvised solo show PLAN C which I toured Down Under in 2016. I occasionally do scripted work as well; most recently I appeared in two short plays by Samuel Beckett with The Story In Motion Project (2016/2017). In 2018 I created AVANT-GARDE, a physical comedy, together with my friends in HaHaHa Impro Theatre (Bulgaria).
