Welcome to my site! I work as a costume-designer and an artist, and creating, or ARTING as I prefer, makes me happy! This is both a portfolio of things I´ve made and a blog meant to inspire.

It´s opening night! Bømlo Teater is staging the Black Comedy by Peter Shaffer. The show is directed by Nina Sele, the scenography is by Janne Robberstad and the lighting-design is by Axel Sundbotten A classic farce with all the right ingredients: a struggling artist, played by Geir Ersland his beautiful fiancé, played by Jenny Larsen […]

Buttercup design

Friday, May 6th, 2016

My favorite story-teller group the Øfsti/Vestre/Haugland have had the premiere on “Smørbukk” (Buttercup). A traditional Norwegian fairytale of a lazy boy who likes candy, manages to trick a two-headed troll a couple of times before he violently beheads it, steals all it´s gold and goes back to his mother for more candy. Not an obvious bed-time […]

Oslo

Thursday, March 17th, 2016

I just got back from Oslo after working with s´the story-teller-group Øfsti/Vestre/Haugland. Such great days with beautiful people and sunny days of spring! They premier on Saturday, so these photos are still very much work-in-progress pictures. The back-drop is my favorite: a snow-camuflage-net we bought used from the military. So much better to use in […]

Ready, set…

Thursday, September 17th, 2015

The guys have started building the set! It´s less than a month till opening night, so it´s about time, you´d think. But no worries, these guys know what they´re doing, and they do it well. In 4 weeks we´ll have a complete 2-story library in the culture-house, filled to the rim with adventures. It does […]

The room that contains all the world

Wednesday, June 24th, 2015

This week I´ve been working on the set for Peter Pan. Below you can see part of the model. I´ve been working vey close with the director, throwing ideas at each other. It´s a very fun and creative way of working. Instead of sitting by yourself, thinking up things, you constantly get questions and new […]

Empty space – full space

Thursday, June 18th, 2015

I am at the start of a new and exciting scenography-project. Bømlo Teater is staging Peter Pan in October. It´s a classic favorite for many, and I think most of us have seen at least part of the animated Disney film. Which means most of us think of Peter in green tights, Hook with big, […]

Human relations at the salmon conveyor

Saturday, April 11th, 2015

Tonight is the premiere of “The Salmon Conveyer” (Lakselinja). Bømlo Teater is staging Nina Sele´s show. It´s an original piece, a mix between dance-theatre and theatre. It´s repetitive, almost meditative. Is there such a thing as meditation-theatre? But there are also funny parts, sad parts and mad parts. The salmons in the background is an […]

Staging the salmon set

Monday, April 6th, 2015

Today was the move-in day on the stage for The Salmon Conveyor. 900 styrofoam-boxes. 500 meters of blank tape. 36 meters of wax-cloth. 70 square meters rented dance-floors. And about 600 cocktail-umbrellas. The director, Nina, is using the opportunity to do the jazz-hands-dance behind a row of styrofoam-boxes. These are the actual boxes the salmon […]

model-making

Thursday, February 5th, 2015

Half my days are now working as a stage-tech on GREASE, which means the other half of the day is free to work on other projects. Today I started working on a model of the set-design for a DUS-show (“The young stage”-project, directly translated) I´ll show you the finished box when it´s done. So far […]

The shamer´s daughter

Thursday, November 6th, 2014

Tonight was the opeing night of The Shamer´s Daugther at HSH, the teacher´s college. The Danish author Lene Kaaberbøl´s fantasy-novel was the inspiration for this year´s “write-an-opera”-project. So welcome to Dunark, a mediaeval county, and Drakan´s dreaded rule. Drakan´s dungeon houses a courtyard filled with dragons! You can almost see the dragon here behind the […]
