Ingrid Berger Myhre

Ingrid Berger Myhre (1987) studied at the Laban Centre in London and graduated from Amsterdamse Hogeschool voor de Kunsten in 2010. In 2015 she finished her MA in choreography at EX.E.R.CE in CCN, Montpellier. Since 2013 she works with the support of Dansateliers where she created a.o.  CURRENT (2013), STAFF (2014), BLANKS (2017) and Panflutes & Paperwork (2019). Language and semiotics are central elements to her artistic work. Departing from text, gesture and the juxtaposition of the two, she proposes cheeky takes on readings and projections of meaning through subtle twists of conventions, context and expectation. In 2015 she received the Arts Council Norway’s grant for graduated Artists. The year after she got nominated for the Council’s Artists Working Grant for the period 2016-2017. Her solo BLANKS was selected for the International platform Aerowaves Twenty18. Since 2018, Ingrid is financially supported by the Nieuwe Makersregeling of Performing Arts Fund NL.

From 2019-2021 Berger Myhre is part of the international project Dancing Museums II, for which she will research movement and choreography in museums in collaboration with Museum Boijmans van Beuningen in Rotterdam.

At the end of 2021  ‘Cold Hawaii’‘, a co-production with Azkuna Zentroa in Bilbao, was selected as part of the #Twenty22 selection by the European platform Aerowaves. This platform receives more than 600 applications annually and will show the 20 selected makers in the spring of 2022, during the Spring Forward Festival. Aerowaves is an important springboard for a new generation of dance artists.
