As a story being told from the perspective of dance, this self made documentary takes the form of a book/letter written to my mother who died of cancer in 2018.
During my mother's last months alive, we spent a lot of time together and I got to meet Karin Marklund, the woman behind my mother.
Dance is a beautiful expression, after many years on stage I thought I expressed life as I knew it. Through our last conversations together I got to know a perspective of life that the stage had still not portrayed for me. A perspective where light does not take away the darkness, it creates a breath within it.


With Dancing On Thoughts I hope to share some of the conversations we had in an open way that makes it intimate for you as a person reading/watching as well. Through text, thoughts and illustrations, this movie is an invitation to the abstraction the world has to offer which exists both before and after words and language. A perspective I miraculously managed to share with my mother the last weeks before she died.
