In this first research phase of Birgit (working title) Jefta van Dinther brings together six women to work with him during a 10-day residency. Kristine Slettevold, Anna Grip, Cecilia Roos, Alexandra Campbell, Linda Adami as well as a posthumous Birgit Cullberg have all been important trustees of van Dinthers work and taken both a personal and professional role in his life. The project Birgit takes its starting point from this cast and tackles questions of stewardship, care, development and legacy.
