Pernille Rübner-Petersen

Singer, songwriter and performer

film director and writer - Master of Arts in Modern Culture

Studies in Performance and Gender (2015/16) at Brunel University, London.

In various contexts I work and perform with singing, music, film and words.

I play the piano and work with improvisation and different musicians.

Related to my music production I design music videos and other visual material.

Having directed plays on stage as well as having written and directed films, my work in theatre and with films is reflected in my music, song writing and singing. It tends to be dramatic and theatrical, yet also atmospheric and evocative.

In articles I write about cultural and artistic issues – e.g. about film, gender, sexuality and identity.
