Last Dance


1st of September 2016 marks my last official day as creative director for Natbar at Bremen.

Founded in 2012, Natbar is now one of the biggest dance bars and clubs in Copenhagen with 1000-1200 people dancing every Friday and Saturday night in the foyer of Bremen Theater. I am very proud of what we have accomplished there and I am certain that the concept is strong enough to be one of the major continuoues parties in the city in the years to come.

Thank you to all the good people involved in bringing Natbar to life. Volcano that hired Hz for the task, Horse on Horse who has been a tremendous help in developing Natbar with me, Lasse Høgh and Waaitt for creating the visual output and graphic identity, the resident DJ’s and bands creating the Natbar sound and endless nights, the super dedicated staff, friendly door crew and last but not least Royal Beer, adidas and other partnerships along the way that helped build the experience. And most of all, the thousands of dancers and delightful guests that made magic happen for the last 4-5 years.


Keep dancing.

Before the talk at Heartland with Camilla Plum and Sandor Katz, I participated in a wild fermentation workshop with the “King of Kraut” Sandor Katz at Camilla Plums beautiful Fuglebjerggård farm. It was a great experience and a masterclass on the wicked world of fermentation and what happens inside and outside our bodies when we let the the wild things grow.

Byens Bedste Llama

For the second year in a row, Llama has been awarded “Best Restaurant on a Budget” at the annual AOK Byens Bedste Award. It feels good to be no. 1 – even better to be no.1 twice. Thank you to everybody that voted and all the happy guests. Llama loves you.




It was a great pleasure to participate in the “creative board” at Heartland Festival this year. And also mediating between Camilla Plum and Sandor Katz on their talk about the art of fermentation and everything rotten.


Feliz navidad
