The Den - INGRID BERGER MYHRE

Ingrid Berger Myhre is a Norwegian dance artist based in Brussels. Her artistic project revolves around literacy in dance, asking how we read - rather than simply watch - dance. Her next piece IN OTHER WORDS is a game in which four performers paraphrase each other’s dances. Using syntax and rhetoric devices borrowed from language as compositional tools, the performance balances unpretentiously between formal sense making and illusions of meaning. 

BIO

Language and semiotics are central elements to her artistic work. Departing from text, gesture and the intersections of the two, her work proposes cheeky takes on readings and projections of meaning through subtle twists of conventions and expectation. Her choreographic body of work consists of LATEST NOTES (2015), SUPPLIES (2016), BLANKS (2017) (selected for Aerowaves Twenty’18) and most recently PANFLUTES AND PAPERWORK (2019), a collaboration with Lasse Passage, which is currently touring internationally.

She has made commissions for Amsterdamse hogeschool voor de Kunsten, Oslo National Academy of the Arts and Conny Janssen Danst’s talent development initiative Danslokaal, which toured major venues throughout the Netherlands in 2018.

Myhre is associated choreographer at Dansateliers Rotterdam, the house co-producing her works since 2014. She participated in several scholarship programmes, amongst others Danceweb at ImpulsTanz in Vienna (2010) and Feldstârke International in PACT (DE), Kyoto Arts Centre (JP) and Montevideo Marseille (FR) (2014). She received Arts Council Norway’s Artists Working Grant for the period of 2016-2017 and the Dutch Performing Arts Fund’s Nieuwe Makers Regeling, a two-year development support for young artists from 2019 - 2020.
