For this AN HOUR WITH Amalie will share insights about her love for dance, habits of collecting and constellating, questions of dancing with vs for an audience and how this led her to two new interests: performing for youngsters and pole dancing, although not simultaneously.
She will also touch upon pleasure elevation (inspired by the teachings of adrienne maree brown), foraging, plant medicine and plant mythology - all of which she considers magic.
She might bring her collections of magnifying glasses, tea pots and herbs.
