ABOUT THE WORK
“Yesterday I went to the private room, Hans paid me 1000 euros and I didn’t really do anything. We went in the jacuzzi and talked about capitalism, which he loves. I told him I don’t have sex with my clients and he said it was ok, he just wanted to ‘fühle mich’.”
- Olga Sonja’s diary, 5th of September 2013
Actress Olga Sonja and Pétur Ármannsson of Dance For Me were fellow students at the Iceland Academy of the Arts. After her graduation Olga Sonja moved to Berlin – to work in the performing arts. In order to make a living, she took jobs as a stripper.
