When Joanna went from dancing every day to making films every day she began telling stories about her peers, people who dream of dancing for a living. Her debut documentary series about aspiring hip hop dancers was aired on Swedish TV to great acclaim. She then picked up a Swedish Grammy for her video for Say Lou Lou, followed by the dance performance, Hyper Fruit, with which she has toured around the world.
With a sharp sense of movement and musicality, combined with a tender and curious approach to her characters, Joanna dreams of empowering stories, youth culture, raw emotions and fragility, and uses her creative precision to transform these themes into mesmerizing visual works of beauty. She now moves seamlessly between stage, dance, performance art, music and film, between London and Stockholm.
