A dance performance read between the lines; a cheeky take on the way we read and project meaning onto things, situations or people through subtle plot twists that leave us to fill in the blanks.

Presented in collaboration with DansiT’s festival Multiplié dansefestival

 

«Like a magician Ingrid Berger Myhre plays the accessories to give rhythm to her entrances and exits. In BLANKS, everything turns into celebration and astonishment, even the ordinary.» – Théàtrorama

 

Blanks is a solo that plays with the conditions through which a dance can be watched. By offering notions of subtext, pretext, and context, Ingrid Berger Myhre lightheartedly suggests how the description of a situation already alters the very situation described.

In a game of deconstructing layers of signs, the viewer navigates – like in a dot-to-dot-game – to reconstruct the meaning by filling in the blanks. Working with text and gesture, Myhre juggles different aspects of the conditions through which a dance can be “read”.

In Myhre’s previous works, semantics has been a recurrent feature to her interest in how we read what is at stake, based on conventions and references in language. With Blanks she continues this investigation – using imagery as the common denominator.

 

 

«Blanks was for me not blank at all, but rather filled. Filled with humour, with nuance, with gentle precision. A smart and captivating game between the performer and the audience, between the spectator and his own perception and expectation. Rich, pleasant and at the same time layered with meanings, possibilities and options.»

Central elements to the artistic work of Ingrid Berger Myhre (1987) are language and semiotics. Departing from text and gesture, she proposes cheeky takes on reading and projections of meaning through subtle twists of context and expectation. She holds a BA in Modern Theatre Dance from Amsterdam School of the Arts and most recently a MA in Choreography; Research and Performance ex.e.r.ce at the Choreographic Centre in Montpellier.
