Ellinor´s work is recognisable for its combination of contemporary dance and conceptual performance art. She often perform her self in her own work as in her solo pieces, but she has as well choreographed duets together with other performers were Ellinor have formulated and developed the concept.

Next upcoming dance- and performance piece is a group piece with a selection of dancers and performers within the field. Each performer is invited to develop a solo, which later on will be composed into a group-constellation.
