Ingrid Berger Myhre & Lasse Passage – Panflutes and Paperwork

What does “dancing to music” really mean? And how do you create music for dance? In this duet, choreographer and performer Ingrid Berger Myhre and composer and recording artist Lasse Passage playfully examine the relationships between dance and music, using scores as tools to uphold structure over skill, method over indulgence. Panflutes and Paperworks is neither a performance nor a concert, it is something new and inbetween.


Inga Huld Hákonardóttir – Again The Sunset

Again The Sunset is a dance which leans into the properties of opera. A laborious concert with a sculptural approach performed by a dancer and a musician. Inga Huld Hákonardóttirvand Yann Leguay move together through infinite forms of repetition, through song, speech and working movements such as chopping wood and shaping stones. Emphasizing that repeated working actions are strenuous but rewarding when there is a sense of movement and change.

Ingrid Berger Myhre & Lasse Passage – Panflutes and Paperwork

The title of the duet Panflutes and Paperworks alludes to the contrast between the wet and the dry: Panflutes, on the one hand, are playful and passionate, Paperwork, on the other, refers to notation and sounds bureaucratic. The tensions between these states play well with tired conventions in the famous choreographer-composer constellation. With both tools at hand, Ingrid and Lasse invent games that re-negotiate their rule.

Panflutes and Paperwork (2019) follows up on the sensitivity for musicality, timing and composition that Myhre’s latest solo work BLANKS (2017) introduced. Her interest in gesture, score and notation comes to new light in the collaboration with Passage, concluding her research project in semiotics. The duet can be seen as a continuation of Myhre’s research at P.A.R.T.S. called Movement x Sound x Word, where the question of poetry in performance is at core. Through her last three projects, Myhre has investigated the conversions between text and gesture – in a three step process where each of the subdivided relations have been emphasised: sound and word (SUPPLIES), movement and word (BLANKS) and finally movement and sound (Panflutes and Paperwork).

Norwegian artist Ingrid Berger Myhre is a choreographer and performer currently based in Brussels. She recently finished the Research Studio’s ‘17-18 at P.A.R.T.S. and has previously studied Modern Theatre Dance at Amsterdam School of the Arts (NL) and holds an MA in Choreography; Research and Performance from ex.e.r.ce at the Choreographic Centre in Montpellier (FR). Her choreographic body of work consists of LATEST NOTES (2015), SUPPLIES (2016), BLANKS (2017) (selected for Aerowaves Twenty’18) and most recently Panflutes and Paperworks (2019) which is currently touring internationally. Myhre is associated choreographer at Dansateliers Rotterdam, the house co-producing her works since 2014 and participated in several scholarship programmes, amongst others Danceweb at ImpulsTanz in Vienna (2010).

Norwegian composer and recording artist Lasse Passage started studying composition at Griegakademiet in Bergen and went on to complete a BA in Sonology from the Royal Conservatoire in The Hague. His work is coloured by his background from the electroacoustics, his work as a songwriter – and the symbiosis of these influences. He has been a central feature in the Norwegian performance art scene the last 5 years with his innovative approach to composition and curiosity for the performative aspect of live music.


Inga Huld Hákonardóttir – Again The Sunset

If repetition is an inescapable element in history, personal relationships, in natural time cycles, what roll does work and resilience have in the efforts made to move forward? In Again The Sunset physical and psychological labour are tied together in this laborious movement concert. The two performers feed each other and generate movements of thought, of bodies and intonations. Elemental materials such as stone, wood and water are the instruments at play. They make ground for the soundscape accompanied by the body breathing, singing, speaking and dancing a story, a poem and a moving song.


Do you remember how real it was that time when we were both so coloured by the sun? …

Do you remember how real it was that time when we were both clouds?

Or we were one cloud rather, a unified cloud coloured pink by the sun...


Inga Huld Hákonardóttir was born in Höfn, Iceland, and now lives and works in Brussels. After graduating from P.A.R.T.S in 2014 she has worked within the field of performance as a dancer, performer and choreographer. She has made several works in collaborative constellations and works with the choreographers and artists Rósa Ómarsdóttir (The Valley, Wilhelm Scream, Da Da Dans), Veli Lehtovaara, Katie Vickers (Slogan For Modern Times) and others. As a performer Inga worked for Eleanor Bauer, composer Chris Peck and ICTUS. Again The Sunset is her most recent work, made in collaboration with musician Yann Leguay.

Brussels based French artist Yann Leguay was defined in his sound practice as a “media saboteur”, seeking to fold the sound materiality in on itself using basic means in the form of objects, videos and performances. Yann has presented his work all around Europe at KunstenfestivaldesArts, Centre Pompidou and more. Since 2007, he produces installations, sculptures and editions that integrate a critical approach to the meaning of the technological evolution. Yann has also worked in the field of performance with choreographers such as Gaëtan Rusquet and Ula Sickle.
