He has also danced, performed and collaborated with companies such as Det Ferøsche Compagnie, Bobbi Lo Produktiona, RIVA and the companies of Johanna Richter, Johannes Härtl and Tomer Zirkilevich.
Holding an interest in the cross-over field between movement, sound composition and text, his bodies of work and co-creations have been performed at festivals such as The Nordic Performing Arts Days, HIER =JETZT, Berlin Performing Arts Festival, Regensburger Tanztage and Nordic Music Days. In recent years, choreography through a post anthroposcene lens and the contemporary body in the digital age have played a substantial role in his interest field and choreographic language.
