Nønne Mai Svalholm/ SVALHOLM was selected by the Danish Arts Foundation for the Young Artistic Elite program for 2022 – 2024.


Nønne Mai Svalholm's new RED trilogy is a series of choreographic works that delve into the theme of violence against women and the murder of women, with a particular focus on disseminating the latest research and facts in the field. With the RED trilogy, she aims to illuminate the societal, structural, and cultural reasons why the murder of women remains the largest single type of homicide in Denmark. 


The trilogy is structured around three independent, yet thematically connected works, each exploring different aspects and perspectives on violence against women and murder of women in intimate relationships. 
"Red Flags" (March, 2024) is the first work in her RED trilogy.


"My vision is that my artistic works become a catalyst for dialogue about societal conditions and inspire across generations. I actively integrate beauty, sensitivity, and poetry into my works to touch the hearts of the audience and give them the ability to relate to the most shocking topics, such as violence against woman and murder of women,"
