‘From an early age I was fascinated by the circus. I saw acrobats and illusionists there doing magical things. I was gripped by the impossible that suddenly became possible before my eyes. It showed me that other laws can apply: that you can defy gravity, that you can go through dimensions and matter. And, if you want you can turn the world upside down by simply hanging upside down on the jungle gym.
With my shows I want to stimulate the fantasy and the playfulness, to make the impossible possible. I want to get under the skin, imagine the emotional worlds that underlie our actions and thoughts. I want to literally turn man inside out. To imagine the subconscious.
I love art in all its forms and expressions. Art can reflect our lives and feelings in a surprising way. It makes us look refreshed at our existence and the world. Art can bend reality. As a result, the alienating form allows us to laugh and cry, to be confronted and comforted. Perhaps especially by the little things in life.
My performances often exist in the dream, where the logic is formed by the associative and the emotional. I want to bring my audience inside my dream world, to find themselves there. With the experience of the wonder of being human.’
