What does it take to create something? What makes sense, and why?


Dance artist and choreographer Ingrid Berger Myhre is back with a brand new piece about logic, consequence and choreographic (un)possibilities, created in collaboration with Nicola Gunn and Ida Wigdel.

With “if, then” as an undercurrent, Ingrid Berger Myhre asks what a choreographic train of thought can be or look like: What conditions the material that is created, and how? What must be given for something to make sense, and why?

In true Berger Myhre spirit, this piece brings fun perspectives on the projection of meanings, with subtle kicks to conventions and expectations. This time the choreographer is less concerned with what meaning something gives, and more with how something arises.

The title, Spelling Spectacle, plays a double meaning: They both evoke a sense of magic, 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.

Spelling Spectacle has its Norwegian premiere during this year’s CODA festival.






Ingrid Berger Myhre is a Norwegian choreographer and dancer currently based in Brussels. She participated in the Research Studios ’17-18 at P.A.R.T.S. (BE) and obtained a master’s degree in Choreography, Research and Performance from the ex.e.r.ce programme at the Choreographic Centre of Montpellier (FR).
Language and semiotics are central to her artistic work. Among others, she made the solo BLANKS and, more recently, Panflutes and Paperwork, a collaboration with composer Lasse Passage. Both pieces were selected for Aerowaves (2018 and 2020).
She is an associate choreographer at Dansateliers Rotterdam and is supported by the Netherlands Fund Performing Arts’ grant for new creators from 2019 – 2020.
