7th July 2004: Appearing in a video art performance called Replay by Hanne Nielsen and Birgit Johnsen. The concept is as follows: a devoted couple agree to be filmed by surveillance cameras for a fortnight. Afterwards some situations are chosen and written as dialogue, which is then given to two actors, who prepare separately. These two actors then perform the aforementioned written dialogue and the audience is now able to compare: What is real and what is fiction? Replay is shown at an exhibition at Brandts in Odense from 8th October and the following three months. See more here.

21st May - 11th June 2004: Three weeks of graduation tour together with my fellow students from GITIS Scandinavia, during which we performed our three graduation shows: Time and the Conways, The Night of the Iguana and Decameron
... in Moscow in front of the professors from our parent school GITIS as our final exam review. This was followed by performances in St. Petersburg, Helsinki, Stockholm, Oslo and Copenhagen. Read more here: (bottom of page)
The tour was a great success and we learned much from the many challenges of playing to such different audiences and on such different stages. We saw that audiences react differently from country to country, and we also found that it is possible to produce interaction between the actors and the audience, irrespective of country or language.
