Some people like to work alone. I like to collaborate.
This page is a map of people and organisations that are key to my work.
In 2014 Øyteateret was started as a collaboration between likeminded theatre maker. I have been running this company until 2017, alongside Andrea Skotland and Marianne Ek Hagen, and previously Ida Frisch and Pierrick Lefevre. In collaboration with a number of other theatre makers and artists we have created approximately two performances a year.
January 2015 I meet theatre maker and playwright Amalie Olesen, since then we have been growing together. January 2017 I directed Amalies play "EGG" at ingentseds, in Oslo. The following year we plan to complete the collaboration "Opphav", written by amalie.
Akerselva trebåtforening jobber for å gjenskape en levende trebåtkultur i Akerselva. Foreningen har som hovedmål å reetablere båtplasser i elva i form av en museumshavn. Vi ønsker å vise fram gamle klassiske trebåter på det stedet i byen der de en gang hørte hjemme. På denne måten vil vi skape et vindu bakover i tiden og fortelle en liten bit av oslohistorien. Vi mener at vakre båter langs elvebredden vil være en berikelse for bybildet. Et levende treåtmiljø i bykjernen vil puste liv i en tradisjonsrik båtkultur som er i ferd med å forsvinne. Øyteateret har samarbeidet med foreninga siden deres pilot prosjekt 2017, og drivere et tett samarbeid om foreningens aktiviteter retta mot barn og unge.
Since summer 2012 Eirik has been a key collaborator and general brain fryer and inspiration. He is the most funny person alive, and a subtile poet and artist. We started with activism for the roma people in tromsø. Since then we have been all about Øyteateret, where Eirik has been a discussion pertner and contributor in nearly all the productions. Among other things he wrote the script for Dit du kom fra. Hear a poem by him here.
My mum, Georgiana Keable and dads mum, Marit Jerstad are both storytellers. Thanks to them I have inherited a repertoire of stories from all over the world! Over the years these stories have come in handy, giving me enough work to get by on. I have a lot to thank these two wonderful ladies for. Especially Geo, who runs Fortellerhuset, where I have done a lot of projects over the years.
