Often based on my own personal issues, my projects investigate themes such as dyslexia, masculinity, femininity, brain injury, to exist, sensuousness, money, the state, and power.
ANIKA BARKAN / DK Performance artist and cultural entrepreneur
Curiously and comitted, I throw myself into projects and topics that mean something to me. Also, by bringing the performing arts into public space, I work on how to reach different parts of the population.

Ellen Holck / DK Musician and singer
Musician and singer in the band Crystal Sky Butterfly.
Often acts as the White Lady.
Kristofer Krarup / DK Casual performer and dancer
I prefer working on projects that embrace improvisation and sponaneity. Instead of moving from A to B, I try to get from G to ~, preferably taking a few unpredicted detours on the way. Using movement and words, and by meeting people with curiousity, I seek to move the audience.
Kristofer’s Carte Blanche appearances: Vandspejlinger, sØnæs, Teaterlyskoncert, ALT der er fortalt og ALT vi ved, Kunsten at leve.
JEAN-MARIE / FR Performer
Jean-Marie began to work as a stage painter and sculptor at the Opera of Rennes, the Théâtre National de Bretagne, the Théâtre des Amandiers, MC93 and the Théâtre de la Ville in Paris, among other places. From 1997 he was in charge of the visual installations of El Teatro de los Sentidos and later became technical leader, set designer and a performer of the company.

He’s been living in Belgium since 2005, where he develops immersive installations and performances as De Generaal.
BENOIT GASNIER / FR Director of the “théâtre à l’envers”
His sensory theater can be both playful and somber in its refusal of gravity and in its absolute confidence in people’s ability to receive. Through his sensitive approach, he investigates our relationship with our inner life and our imaginative capacity. He is interested in making a space for spectators, so that they continue investigating these sensorial individual journeys.

LISA BECKER / BR Artist and performer
I was born and raised in Brazil and trained as an actor in England. I love to act in and create performances in collaboration with other artists, be it my own projects or theirs. Connecting and listening to the audience is very important to me.
CLAUS CARLSEN / DK Self-taught sound artist
In the sØnæs performance, I played an electro-acoustic instrument that consisted of metal objects immersed in water and transmitting sound to 2 under-water microphones (hydrophones). These microphones then led the sound through some guitar effect pedals and then through an auto amplifier, sending it to the speakers placed in concrete tubes, channeling the sound back across the lake.
GABRIEL HERNANDEZ / CO Designing and creating interactive installations
He is dedicated to the creation of interactive performances and sensorial spaces worldwide. Gabriel is a founding member of Teatro de los Sentidos (created in 1989). For over twenty years, he has been touring extensively throughout the world, creating sensorial experiences and art performances.
MARGA SOCIAS / ES Inventor and storyteller
Her approach is to empty then fill, destroy then create, take apart and then reassemble in another way. She likes to unfold new worlds, transient and unrepeatable, worlds born from games, from the body, from music, from poetry. Playful realities able to break the order of everyday life.
CINDY RUDEL / DE Performance, dance, installation, somatic movement.
The first time I met the sea was at nighttime. I was walking inside a town made by the water. I begin to remember the streets. I remember to have walked here before.
I step into the space of water. A small sidewalk leads me deeper into the sea.
SEIMI NØRREGAARD / DK Artist, writer, producer and performer.
Creates rooms, roomy poetry. In my work I invite you to join. Lay down, sniff in, read it, listen, unfold it, crawl into it, whirl with it into the clouds.METTE AAKJÆR / DK Performer, dancer and artistic leader of Wunderland.
I am enthusiastic about exploring cracks in the reality we think we know. The place where the understanding becomes bodily kaleidoscopic. Mette explores interactivity and sensuality in the dramatic arts under the name of Wunderland along with invited artists.
