Break the Fight - Breaking borders!

The spread of democracy and virus of totalitarianism. Sleek beauty of the machine. Global conflict and conflagration. Hate made productive. Death and automation. Anxiety and modernity.

Right now my interest in art making is power and it's different relations. I have started creating series of performances that all concentrate in to the usage of power and power relations in different ways.

Next upcoming performance is inspired by Günter Grass's novel The Tin Drum. I want to update the substance of the novel into our current time and society.

How the post traumatic war experiences affects the emotional dynamics in the families?

How the silent and encrypted ways of family life affects children and later us adults when growing up?

What about families with refugee background? How does independency, integrity and selfhood born?
