Movement Class XL: Ingrid Berger Myhre

Sun 5 May | 13:00

Every first Sunday of the month you can join an extended version of the Movement Class in Dansateliers. The Movement Classes XL are specially constructed around Dansateliers’ 25th anniversary and are taught by different choreographers connected to the house. The class is an in-depth introduction to the movement material and working methods of the dance-artists. By the use of physical exercises and tasks they will take you along an exploration in improvisation, performance and body-awareness. Professional dancer, amateur or never seen a dancefloor before? No problem, the lesson is open for everyone.

On Sunday May 5, the movement class XL is taught by choreographer Ingrid Berger Myhre. Ingrid is currently touring together with composer Lasse Passage Nøsted with their duet Panflutes and Paperwork. Myhre and Passage both work with a lighthearted approach to composition and share affinities in regards to subtle humour.  During the Movement Class XL Ingrid shares her concepts and takes you along an exploration of movement and methods for creation.

What are we going to do?

In this workshop we will look at a series of scores that can tell us something about the poetics in the intersection of dance and language. We will discuss ways of seeing a dance and ways to describe it. What are the losses and gains when the two interact? We will also play some collective and relational games in which architecture and scaffolding of being together provides the choreographic structures.

We will also experiment and discuss some more recently openened issues in our current collaboration in regards to the (conventional) relationship between music and dance. What are the possible ways the two disciplines can coexist and (why) do we perceive some more functional than others?

What can you expect?

You can expect a playful, open atmosphere in which the activities we do resemble games more than exercises. You will get lots of agency and the chance to let your creativity run free. In this way, you’ll gain insight how one can move freely through open scores.

The class will provide a range of practical and theoretical experiences and a dynamic learning space through movement, thought, language and music.
