Plant Hunters develops through two bodies with their different physical discourses – the dancer and the musician. My intention was to breakdown the opposition between these two functions. Using various texts materials characters have been created which have contributed to work beyond the conventional rolaes of a musician and a dancer. The musician is also a storyteller or as I say a ‘DJ of emotions’. As a dancer the work with voice and text in this piece meant an extention if my possibilies of expression and it is for me a continous challenge to combine movement and language in diffrent ways.
