He is always on the lookout for new ideas and possibilities to make the impossible possible. Without getting too swept off his feet of course, even when he goes up in the air.

 

Avid in many disciplines since 2001: partner and floor acrobatics, juggling, object manipulation, aerial and fire performance, he is active in many different projects and performances like his partner acrobatics or book routine to name here a few.

 

Also an enthusiastic climber, he broadened his expertise in the more technical aspects. In 2005 he became a qualified industrial climber and aerial flying instructor, breaking new ground in his performance arts.

 

He is very familiar with finding ideal rigging solutions for events, theatre productions and stages. Since 2006 he has been active in a wide range of productions as flying instructor and supervisor, and as head of aerial wire stunt rigging and safety for theatre concerts and productions (such as Bob Dylan, Mozart and Beatles in theatre Oestre Gasvaerket Kopenhagen and the theater Aarhus, and the theatre production Fragment Mozart’s Opera in the Deutchen Oper, etc.).

 

For a number of years he has also been active as a choreographer for circus acts, event and stage shows (Orbicularis Oculi, 8 ½ Circus Space, Archie Clapp, Fernando and Serafina, Krischan Meder, etc.). While doing so his main focus is in the realm of new circus, combining various performance styles together to create new unique masterpieces.
