What does “dancing to music” really mean? And how do you create music for dance? In this duet, Ingrid Berger Myhre and Lasse Passage playfully examine the relationships between dance and music, using scores as tools to uphold structure over skill, method over indulgence. The title of their duet 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.
“The Norwegian Berger Myhre, educated in Amsterdam and Brussels, seems to own this type of dry humor as an inherent part of her dance works.You have to like it (…). It is at the same time laughable and sweet, as they try to share everything (even each other’s talent) in this small hour full of playfully performed nonsense-games.” Annette Embrechts, De Volkskrant: ★★★★☆
