I just received my new headshots from the very talented and lovely photographer HEIN Photography. We had a relaxed and fun session and I think you can see that in the photos. I’m really happy with them! You can check them out here and spot them around the website.
‘Kerry Fitzgerald and Lise Knudsen work well together… Both have excellent comic timing and they do incredibly well to remain poker-faced during the more chaotic moments during the show…
Come Hygge Yourself is a unique, thought-provoking and hilariously awkward production that’s guaranteed to raise a smile. If only all work seminars were as entertaining as this!’
I’m very happy with the positive feedback and this great review – you can read the full version here!
We’re very grateful to the people who came out to support us at the King’s Head Theatre on July 10th. It became a bang of a show and we definitely delivered on the bonkers front.
I was stoked with the audience feedback: “At first I felt very safe, and by the end I juust wanted to leave. In a good way!” – referring to how the two lovely people conducting this seminar about happiness and hygge (Joanna Joyful & Barbara Beaming) where failing terribly and taking everyone down with them.
We had such a blast and luckily it seemed like the same was the case for the audience! Thank you loads <3
And special thanks to my fellow Ostrich Kerry Fitzgerald!
On Wednesday the 10th of July I will be performing at The King’s Head Theatre, Islington, as the one part of Purple Ostrich Productions’ comedy spoof-seminar Come Hygge Yourself!
It is all about Hygge & Happiness and it will be bonkers, fun and informative. We can’t wait. Tickets can be purchased here or any day at the The King’s Head box office. COME!
When we did our first public viewing of the performance-installation Tomb with a View, we had some photos taken, and now I finally got around to publishing some of them!
Kerry Fitzgerald and I are taking Purple Ostrich Productions for another stroll with our brand new show, Come Hygge Yourself. It is a spoof-seminar about recipes for happiness and the commodification of the Danish term ‘hygge’ and we have already been invited to Teaterøen in Copenhagen during the CPH Stage Festival, and the Playmill Festival at King’s Head Theatre in London!
In Copenhagen, we will be doing a preview on the 26th of May, but for the full monty in London, you can buy your tickets here. So excited!
Jeg har fået Eksil (residens) på HAUT sammen med arkitekt Lieve Smout og radiodokumentarist Anne Neimann Clement fra lydkollektivet LYDPOL. Den første uge af april skal vi eksperimentere med vores projekt, der omhandler døden i byen – vores arbejdstitel er “Tomb with a View”.
Vi undersøger døden som industri og ser på dens udfordringer i urbane samfund på en overbefolket planet. Vi spørger, om det er nødvendigt at overveje, hvordan rammerne omkring døden skal se ud i fremtiden? Og hvis, hvordan kan de så ændres?
Det bliver super spændende. Kan ikke vente!
POP is back with a new comedy lecture about happiness (because in this political climate we really need something uplifting!). This time around we will be inviting people in for a spoof-seminar where you will all learn how to Hygge Yourself a bit more to raise the happiness bar. And where better to get start than in Denmark – one of the world happiest countries!?
On May 26th, we will be showing a 15 minute showcase at the CPH Stage edition of Teater Tapas at Teaterøen in Copenhagen. We can’t wait!
So Come Hygge Yourself with us in May!

I kuratering af den Københavnske del af festivalen har nytænkende kunstnerisk vision, eksperimenteren, og kritisk refleksion været afgørende for udvælgelsen af kunstnere og værker, som både tæller performance kunst, eksperimenterende dans, queer rave, performance lecture, installation, drag show samt intim performances.
