Artist in Residence – Ehrlich Ocampo

Ehrlich Ocampo, also known as “Firechill”, is a Filipino circus performer and movement artist who dances with various props such as poi, hoop, and the leviwand. He has been developing his own movement style, and has also been exploring producing visuals with his movement. He has also delved into using words in his expression, incorporating spoken word into his performances, as well as writing a short book.

Recently, he worked for Cirque du Soleil at Sea as part of the creation team and original cast of two shows. He believes that Iceland whispered to him through her heralds that he fly to the land of ice and lights, and so he came to Nes Artist Residency and has been exploring fusing images of his body movements with the sublimity of his surroundings.
