This weekend Project Trofast (faithful) started of with the first rehearsals for a performance in December 2017. I was so lucky to get to be a part of this after an audition in March, and I'm so happy that I get to work with this talented and cool group of dancers. The project is driven by two crafty and vigorous girls; Anette Tømmerholen and Sunniva Øverland.
The rehearsal took place in this beautiful building from 1915 at Tøyen, Oslo, that used to be a substation, 'transformatorstasjon', thereby the nickname Trafo. It was such a good feeling to move in this bright room with a view over Oslo, and it created a really good atmosphere.
The projects theme is about faith, belief and religion which has already proven to be very interesting to work with and reflect around. How this is going to be reflected in movement and dynamics is going to be even more interesting.
I am really looking forwards to the next time we meet, in August, and to see what the rest of this creative prosess brings us. I'm excited to see the result of the project and I'm positiv this experience will help me develop even further as a dance artist.
