is the company's debut performance produced and choreographed by company member Mathilde Caeyers. Eksogen aims to explore whether there is a potential for violence in each individual human body through the philosophical lense of psychologist Carl Jung. It delves into the process of realising the shadow that is welded into our deep unconscious mind and evolves around Jung's quote: that which we do not bring to consciousness appears in our lives as fate - C.G. Jung

"... here are open investigations into the self, or humanity's inherent ability to be evil and violent. It is dance artist Mathilde Caeyers who stands behind this work, and it is this project with the title Eksogen that seized me the most. It is art that forces us to meet our shadows, that does not let us understand, but maybe suspect. That leads us to new ways of thinking without ascertaining; I think we need more of this. Both as humans and as society." - Nordlys review of work in progress showing @Vårscenefest 2019 by Anki Gerhardsen, freelance journalist.
