writing

Supported by The Danish Film Directors Association I am currently researching, writing and developing a documentaryfilm to be filmed mainly in America. I have a feature film-manuscript ready for the UK/US-market, and I am also developing the storyline and research for THIS IS PAULINE! An International TV-series. I am finishing up my first novel and I also have an illustrated poetry collection ready for publishing in Danish. And for theatre I am, together with the rest of the Art-Collective PLUMES, developing a burlesque-inspired theatre show, a follow-up project to my play Misty Gaze will Amaze - 100 years of Women's Right to Vote from 2015, in the Autumn of 2019 I stayed in Greece at The Danish Institute in Athens to do research for this new PLUMES performance.
