I played one of the test subjects who had to go through “electric currents”, which aimed to show in a humorous way that some people choose harder solutions for their homepage creating than others do.

I was the poor schmuck who had to go through the trials and tribulations of the “electric currents” that involved in me shaking and sputtering while desperately holding on to dear life.

My Time (Min Tid)

bus performance

I played the part of “Shahbaz” in a performance lecture that was a bachelor assignment for a Performance Design group from Roskilde University College.

My co-player and I played two lecturers of the Romantic Era, which incorporated song, dance and lots and lots of dry material presented in a super sexy manner by the macho, yet surprisingly homo erotic duo that summon two divas to aid in the lecture.

One of the funniest performances I’ve ever been a part of that was particularly difficult to perform in, since I was terribly stricken by the flu.

I played the part of Ebbe in the collage performance that melded texts from film and theater and made a separate performance from them.

The revenue went to a charity organization called “Projekt Udenfor/Project Outside”, whose main task is to aid homeless people during the cold months of winter.

That’s One Take On It

OT1 OT2 OT3 OT4 OT5 OT6 OT7 OT8 OT9 OT10 OT11 OT12 OT13

 

A Demo Reel disguised as a short film where I act out ten different scenes that you know from different movies without it specifically being from certain films.

The special thing about the film is that it is shot in one take, i.e. absolutely no editing of shots took place.

The idea came about due to my frustration over having worked for so many years in short films and not having the material sent to me by various amateur filmmakers, and also my love of one takes/long takes.

I wrote the script, directed, cast and produced along with starring in the feature.

I participated in the dance performance in the acclaimed Dansehallerne/The Dance Halls connected to the Carlsberg Brewery.

The performance consisted of 13 professional dancers and 40 extras, where I was in the extras group.

This was the first time that I performed in the nude in front of an audience in an effort to heighten confidence and further my development as an actor.

The performance sought to present man as a flock animal and not as the zeitgeist would have it, namely as an individual.
