A performance by Ingrid Berger Myhre and Lasse Passage
Lasse Passage is a composer and a musician. Ingrid Berger Myhre is a choreographer and a dancer. They have different experiences and perspectives, but share the negotiation that arises when meeting in the periphery of their own expertise. Their collaboration is about finding new ways to articulate a working situation where both operate as equal players, without having to be the same. No Dreams, No Gold is a medley of possible scenarios. Each one triggered by each other in a string of digressions. With minimal means on stage (a handful of props, a couple of laptops and microphones, a clothing rack and a green screen) the show takes shape as a hörspiel, a band rehearsal, a karaoke night, a living room concert, a composition lecture, a toastmaster speech, a podcast and a campfire confession. As the materials weave a DIY network of formats and genres, dreams and digressions - Ingrid and Lasse become each other’s licence and support, in a performance about what the theatre does best: togetherness in real and imagined places. Ingrid and Lasse’s friendship is an intrinsic part of their artistic material, which they give the audience generous access to. Their work is highly personal yet down to earth. In 2019 they made the performance Panflutes and Paperwork. No Dreams, No Gold is their next stage production, in which they continue to contemplate the conventions of music and dance with warmth and humor.
