Ingrid Berger Myhre
In Other Words
06.07 – 07.07.2021
Is dance a language? And if so, how does it speak? In In Other Words, Ingrid Berger Myhre explores the compatibility between dance and language. She uses rhetorical devices to create a composition of movement. With the stage as an empty page, the choreographic writing unfolds as a physical discourse with its own syntax, grammar and vocabulary. But what conditions these dance utterances? And what does it mean to read dance? In other words, if we are not seeking meaning, how do we interpret this production? With ingenuity and charm, Ingrid Berger Myhre presents a relativizing take on dance. What are the possibilities and shortcomings of language?
