INGRID BERGER MYHRE is a Norwegian choreographer and performer currently based in Brussels. She holds an MA in Choreography; Research and Performance from ex.e.r.ce at the Choreographic Centre in Montpellier (FR) and later deepened her project on literacy in dance at the Research Studio’s at P.A.R.T.S.
Ingrid started out studying modern dance at Amsterdam School of the Arts (NL), and worked as a freelance dancer in the independent scene in the Netherlands and abroad in the following years, before she pursued her interest in choreography. Since her master studies, Ingrid has developed her work as associate artist at Dansateliers Rotterdam, and from 2019 - 2020 with the support of the Dutch Performing Arts Fund’s Nieuwe Makers Regeling. 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 and was artist in residence at Museum Boijmans van Beuningen as part of the EU research project Dancing Museums II from 2019 - 2021.Language and semiotics are central elements to Ingrid’s artistic work. She is motivated by questions around how we read and understand dance, especially in the context of the theatre. Her relativizing take on dance as we know it comes together in unpretentious and humorous performances. Her solo BLANKS (2017) and the duet PANFLUTES AND PAPERWORK (2019), a collaboration with Lasse Passage, introduced her work internationally. Both works were selected for Aerowaves, and has toured a number of venues in Europe and in Norway. In her most recent production IN OTHER WORDS (2021), she continues her play with the capacities and shortcomings of language - using it as a scaffold for dance as poetic expression.
