Spelling Spectacle

A cheap horse is rare.
What is rare is expensive.

Spelling Spectacle is a performance about logic, consequence and possibility by Ingrid Berger Myhre, made and performed in collaboration with Nicola Gunn and Ida Wigdel.

With “if, then” as undercurrent, the piece asks what a coherent choreographic train of thought can be or look like. What conditions the following, and how? According to which givens does something make sense? And what does it say about the backdrop of our reading?

The title Spelling Spectacle is an alliteration in which the words share a twofold allusion. They both evoke a sense of magi,c in addition to their literary sense of reading or seeing: to spell as in decoding, or a spell as in a magical formula. A spectacle as something to be seen, and spectacles as something one sees through.
