Maja’s work investigates ice as a medium, subject and object through an interdisciplinary approach. Pushing the boundaries of what movement on ice can be and exploring its intersection with other arts forms. 

In her choreographic skating work Maja combines the grace and elegance of figure skating with the artistic expression of contemporary dance and artforms such as installation, poetry, sound and film; developing skating as an interdisciplinary artform and discovering a new movement vocabulary, on the medium of ice. 

As a founding member of the Contemporary Skating Alliance Maja helps to initiate the movement of contemporary skating, expanding the contemporary art scene to include a new dimension and artistic medium of figure skating. 

Furthermore, Maja is concerned with global Eco- and Climate-challenges we are facing as humanity and investigates how an immersive encounter with ice can support a collective understanding for climate action. In her installation body melts (2020) she invites visitors to sense and feel into the melting process of ice.
