Mirte Bogaert

Mirte Bogaert is a Belgian dan­ce artist, based in Bergen, Norway. She gra­du­a­ted from School for New Dance Oslo in 2014, and finis­hed her stu­dies at Research Studios 2017 – 2018 at P.A.R.T.S. in Brussels.

Bogaert devel­ops per­for­ming arts pro­jects whe­re she employs dif­fe­rent stra­te­gies to inte­gra­te body, move­ment, sound, light and text with each other. Thereby she aims to ques­ti­on exis­ting hier­ar­chies and con­ven­ti­ons in the the­a­tre. Through her inte­rest in sound and lan­gu­a­ge, she explo­res pos­si­bi­li­ties for dan­ce cre­a­ti­on through methods of trans­la­ti­on and obser­va­ti­ons rela­ted to spea­king and bre­a­thing. She is inte­rested in the rela­ti­on bet­ween lan­gu­a­ge and body, as well as trans­la­ti­on as a sour­ce for devel­o­ping new under­stan­dings through misunderstanding.
