This is going to happen:
20th January - 11th February 2018:
Kosmologym is an experimental performance gym taking place at Den Frie Udstillingsbygning. See more here
14th January 2018:
14th January marks the day when Kosmologym will begin. Walking in a parade of sound and objects that eventually will constitute the Kosmologym (exhibition) we will transport the plants, stoneheads, basketballs, treadmills, jenga blocks, instruments and much more from Nordhavn to Østerbro.
Through this movement a spacious temporary relationship between humans and others will be created and land in Den Frie Udstillingsbygning at Østerbro. Through simultaneous chaos and thoughtfulness / attention this image will be sunk into the ground at Den Frie Udstillingsbygning to sounds of drums, violins and voices. See more here:

To launch her new self-published book 'Dance Home', April has created a live experience with the following:
a lost astronaut // radio-transmission //
countdown begins // faceless limbs //
techno // lazers // fog // projection
ritual // fever // celebration // dancing // glitter // and your guts //

I'm also working with Karen Christopher to finish our piece, miles&miles - keep an eye on this very page to see when we will be performing...
3rd February - Roehampton University: Heading for the Horizon: the composition of a performance
"Karen Christopher and Sophie Grodin are two people standing at the edge of a landscape, tied to opposite ends of a 100-meter rope they hop, skip, cajole, and reminisce about other people’s lives. They are devising a performance duet: miles & miles. They are stepping back from the edge to give a performance lecture on the results of their 3-day residency in DTP’s Studio 5. "Some things have to be imagined before they can become real."
