Australian dancer Louella May Hogan uses her body and voice to annotate the real and illustrate the imagined, as Danish producer Frederik Tollund creates sound spanning everything between gritty and whimsical.

She choreographs the imaginations of the audience while Frederik, using samplers and modular synthesis, hyper-sensitively enhances and warps the space with audio. 

Louella May Hogan explains:

Louella May Hogan is from Australia and has a Bachelor of Fine Arts in Dance at the Victorian College of the Arts in Melbourne. She has performed throughout Australia with Shelley Lasica, Bec Jensen, Sarah Aiken and in Germany with Cyril Baldy and Prue Lang. Louella has called Denmark home since 2018 when she joined the Royal Danish Ballet’s former experimental company Corpus where she worked with artists such as Bobbi Jene Smith, Hilde Sandvold and Kristin Ryg Helgebostad.

Frederik Tollund is a Copenhagen-based DJ, producer and co-founder of Group Therapy at Ved Siden Af. His productions have a hook-loving vein with tracks released on Radiant Love and Another Name. For this performance, Frederik will move away from the sweaty late hour clubs and explore the more ethereal and harsh aspects of his sonic universe.
