Maritea Dæhlin at MJF

MJF is excited to welcome Maritea as our July Fellow

Maritea Dæhlin (1986) alternates between living and working in Norway and Mexico. She is interested in human behaviors, emotions, rituals and encounters. Her work spans between devised theater, video performance, performance art and text. Her art comes off as playful, minimal, non-linear and sometimes absurd. She also organizes and curates meeting points involving other artists, as residencies, talks and workshops.

Dæhlin's studies include a BA in Devised Theatre w/Digital Arts at Dartington College of Arts in England (2007-2010) and a 2-year acting course at Nordic Black Express in Oslo (2005-2007). Her work has been shown at venues such as Black Box teater (Oslo), Kunstbanken - Hedmark Kunstsenter (Hamar), Center for Performance Research (New York), Centro Cultural España (Mexico City), RAS-Regional Arena for Samtidsdans (Sandnes), No Nation Gallery (Chicago), Central School of Speech and Drama (London), Defibrillator Gallery (Chicago), and San Agustin Arts Centre (Oaxaca). Maritea is currently a recipient of arbeidsstipend for young artists by Norsk Kulturråd (2019 and 2020).
