Nordic Folksong is a documentary series that explores the lives of Scandinavian creative individuals living in England.
England has the greatest density of Scandinavian emigrants in the world and many of them are creative artists or designers that are not known by the Scandinavian audience. This documentary is trying to lift those that not only dears to move to another country but who believes in themselves and their dream of succeed as a creative artist.
Tommy arrived in the UK in 2001 and is probably mostly recognised as the runner-up of BBC 1’s “So You Think You Can Dance” 2010 but some might have seen him in Mamma Mia – The Movie. After working professionally as a performing artist for 16 years, Tommy has in the recent years also dwelled into choreography. Most recently he choreographed for ZooNation’s “Some Like It Hip Hop”
He was nominated for an award by the Critic’s Circle’s “National Dance Awards” in the “Best Male Performance (Modern)” category for his efforts in the show “Goldberg” at The Royal Opera House and “Blaze” (in which he also choreographed) at Sadler’s Wells Peacock Theatre
Tommy is working with the Russell Maliphant Company and is touring internationally with the show “The Rodin Project”. Tommy has also been nominated an Olivier Award 2012 for Outstanding Achievement in Dance.
