Hey, I'm Nicola!

Amsterdam, North Holland

I am a swedish filmmaker and choreographer, based in the Netherlands. I graduated from the Master program Choreography and New Media at The University of the Arts/ Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in 2006. 
My films Echo, Walk, The Double and Songs of the Underworld have been screened and awarded at film festivals internationally.
My work often returns to the theme of ageing, reminiscing, perception and/or the notion of a double such as in the ideas of writer Jorge Luis Borges. I am fascinated with the symbiosis of the live, moving body and moving images on a screen and have often worked with live or pre-recorded images as an integral part of my stage performances and installations in the past. Since 2015 my main focus is on screendance and film making. I find the moving camera, its choreography in relation to the dancers, actors or moving bodies an exhilirating asset in the quest to make a visceral and engaging film. Having always been very visually oriented, in filmmaking my skills come together in attempting to tell a story with images, movement, scenery, sound and bodies.
Currently in preproduction for my next film, Spell Bound. Don't hesitate to contact me if you want to hook up or know more about my work.
