Exploring difference, connections and inspiration with other artists and activists.
The past two years have been a bit of everything and a lot of happening. With a global pandemic as a constant influence on all plans. I have worked a lot - with my clients in my therapy & coaching practice, with my teams and tasks at the University of Oslo, and with my artistic and activist collaborations. I am always learning. I learn from my clients and colleagues, from fellow artists and activists, from my chosen family, from being and doing. I get lost and confused and stumble back on track.

I am involved in several projects I feel lucky and proud to be part of: Promoting non-binary representation as part of Linda Bournane Engelberth's photo series Outside the binary, creating and performing with transgender inclusive dance and performance company 71Bodies, making queer space, dialogue and resistance with Book of Change and Triumf Amiria and celebrating queer voices and perspectives with Mohini books and the upcoming anthology Queers in Quarantine.

I have a big stack of unrecorded songs and poems that I want to share more of with you, at least a selection of them. I don't know how yet. In the last two years I have been exploring earth and water again, and now fire is making itself felt. There will be both letting go and letting grow, and I am both anxious and excited about that!

what's not to love?!?
Performing Sheman and the Dollfaces as part of the Circus Village at Torshov has been a lot of fun - thank you everyone who came to the show (though why you keep cheering for that inflated poseur Sheman is beyond me! Hrmph!). The circus is still happening this weekend, so go and see the remaining shows while you can!

One of the best things about performing at that sort of event - apart from getting to perform at that sort of event, I mean - is that I get in to the other shows for free. A sweet deal for a circus lover on a tight mean, budget. Last weekend I happily grinned my way through Jeanne Mordoj's stripped down and brilliant "La Poème", and Frida Odden Brinkman's weird and wonderful "1 1/2", and of course whooped it up for the hard working fakirs of Pain Solution and their visiting guests - once again giving true meaning to the expression "painfully funny". If you are in France or New York in the near future, check Jeanne Mordoj's webpage, and GO SEE HER SHOW. Really. Do it.

You can still catch a performance of "1 1/2" and/or the sideshow in Oslo this weekend, and I highly recommend both. I will also be going to see "Footnotes and handspun" by Ilmatila tomorrow - who can resist the combo of a giant trapese and a live cello score?

In other news, it's time for an orgy of queer film, at Skeive Filmer. They've already hosted a hypnotic performance by Benjamin Dukhan at Black Box Theater (last Wednesday & Thursday), and tonight the film festival itself opens with a bang and a ball, as it were, with "I am Divine" and another performance by Dukhan's alter ego "Burger Girl" at the party at Revolver after the opening film. I will see you in the ticket line and/or on the dance floor - and then tomorrow for a juicy late lunch with Buck Angel and "Sexing the Transman"! WOOF!

One last thing for now: Next chance to hear me howl with a pack of other lovely forest creatures and engaged activists is Sept. 28th, in the café at Blitz (me, Redwood and Sangre de Muerdado) and at Maksitaksi (Ohnesorg, David Rovics). Come and be serenaded and/or sing along!
